MFA Never Catalog
Root Division 1131 Mission Street
MFA Never was conceptualized by Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen, to create opportunity for underrepresented artists, those who are unaffiliated with alumni networks, and may have not had the debut opportunity offered by the MFA Thesis exhibition. MacFadyen is the founder of A Simple Collective, a contemporary arts organization dedicated to, "access, equality, ingenuity, creativity, and independence."
Every artist who submitted to MFA NEVER will be featured in the MFA NEVER archive catalogue. The book includes information about each contributing artist and a compilation of essays by Root Division staff, and the panel of exhibition jurors, serving to unpack some of the issues surrounding decisions to not pursue higher education. Copies of the catalogue will be available to purchase for $20.
