Walk into the museum to enter a realm of varied artworks: painted plexiglas portraits hanging off the ceiling, an interactive sculptural piece with cut-out maps and viewers’ personal stories, woodblock printed books scattered across a table. Composite, an exhibition at the Braucher Gallery of the Perlman Teaching Museum, showcases recent work from this year’s 14 senior studio art majors. The show is scheduled at the end of the academic year and the end of these majors’ Carleton careers. However not all objects represent a “final year project” (or COMPS); some students choose to present more recent post-COMPS projects.
All fourteen sets of work share a delicate and attentive sensibility towards personal, social, and conceptual issues.

Both a conclusion and a jump-off point for these undergraduate art majors, Composite is a refreshing account of how young artists engage the world through a language that is both intimate and broad, subjective yet universal.
