A catalyst incites change. Like a catalyst, this exhibition presents new perspectives, experiences, and ambitions, which will influence the future. Selected works by the participating students often exceed the traditional boundaries within their chosen media of study, and demonstrate exceptional talent. Catalyst displays the versatility found within the department’s fourteen disciplines as student artists transcend the norm.

This exhibition is a culmination of works from the department’s various disciplines: fine art, art history, and design; created by undergraduate students during the 2016-17 academic year.
