Prelude is a collaboratively curated show featuring the work of 17 graduating UC Berkeley Art Practice majors whose individual career trajectories have converged at this uncertain moment that is simultaneously the end of an era and the start of a new.


Rather than being thought of as a capstone, or the crowning achievement concluding a journey, their featured work is instead understood as a prelude. It is a showcase of work that has been done, work that continues to evolve, and work that reveals a necessary stage for the greater potential that is to come.


Please join us for an Opening Reception from  5 – 10 pm, Friday May 1st, 2015.
