This show marks the seventh consecutive year of collaboration between Department of Art and Art History graduate students on a summer exhibition at the CRL.

The exhibition opening also features a one-time performance of Joseph Winchester's Film Machine 4 (2008).

Featured artists are Jonathan Aseron, Sonya Berg, Michael Coyle, Kristina Felix, Robert Melton, Teruko Nimura, Josh Welker, and Joseph Winchester. The exhibition curators are Katie Anania, Ariel Evans, Katie Geha, Allison Myers, Deborah Spivak, Caitlin Topham, Danielle Wells, and Hannah Wong.

The Creative Research Laboratory presents a year-round schedule of exhibitions, featuring work by students and faculty at The University of Texas at Austin. The CRL is located in East Austin at 2832 East Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, inside Flatbed World Headquarters. There is ample free parking and bus service available on Capitol Metro's route 18.
