For its last week, the show will conclude its virtual talking series with Artists Talk: The Poetics of Performance, featuring participating artists on 14 December.

SEAF fellows draw from diverse backgrounds in visual art, design, sculpture, performance, and literature. Their ages and careers vary widely, with some fellow within only a year of their graduation while others balance active work lives with their demanding studio practice.
