MFA’14 Samantha Burns Solo Exhibition and Visiting Artist at SLU

Published October 19, 2016
During the week of October 10th, Samantha Burns, MFA’14 was a visiting artist at Southeastern Louisiana University. Brought in by gallery director and curator, Dale Newkirk, Burns installed a solo exhibition consisting of three sculptural installations within the SLU Contemporary Art Gallery. During her stay, Burns also provided an artist talk discussing her current work and the development of her practice as an emerging artist.

In discussing this exhibition Burns says, “The installations exhibited in SLU’s Contemporary Art Gallery, are a continuation in exploring temporary sculptural environments, which exist in a state of precarious fragility. Found objects and fabricated objects organized into impermanent sculptural forms; one that is vulnerable to the passage of time and to the surrounding environment. Within these works, the viewer is presented with an opportunity to appreciate the present moment and its inherent fleetingness.”

The exhibition will be up and running until November 10, 2016. To learn more about this exhibition and the current practice of Samantha Burns visit:
