The USC Roski School of Art and Design’s latest generation of artistic voices have challenged the bounds of material, form and expectation to demonstrate the embodied process of making space in the world in its. Leveraging memory and experience, these artists have forged new definitions of painting, design, sculpture, and inter-media art. Bodies in Space, Roski’s annual juried student exhibition, highlights some of the most innovative, impactful, and unique examples of this work created by students across majors, courses, class years, and disciplines. 

Artworks and installations displayed examine how one attempts to be perceived as part of a larger group or identity while still seeking to be seen as a unique individual. Roski students have attempted to reform media and styles in their generation’s own voice by referencing unique touchstones such as pop-up advertisements, artificial intelligence, climate change— deconstructing media, environments, identities, technology, and the body in the process.
