The University of Maine Intermedia MFA program is proud to present Without Borders XI: Desire Lines, a presentation of thesis works by the class of 2014. The show will take place in Lord Gallery on the University of Maine Campus in Orono from August 8th until September 19th. We hope you will join us for the opening reception on Friday September 5th from 5-7pm. This event is free and open to the public.
A “desire line” is a path formed by repeated foot traffic along a given route that is not the officially sanctioned trail. It is the place where people have chosen to go off the map. Part of what defines us as intermedia artists is that we have all chosen to stray from the path set for us by traditional art and academic disciplines. The definition of art that we embrace is purposefully broad and inclusive. The work that we present here draws from a wide variety of themes, disciplines and materials. But what unites us is our desire to push past the lines that have been drawn for us.
