This event is sponsored by the Hunter College Integrated Media Arts MFA program and EYEspeak, the IMA graduate student organization. The MFA in Integrated Media Arts is a unique graduate program that focuses on the creative production of media with a social orientation.
Based in New York City—the global hub of old and new media technology—the IMA-MFA program encourages students to explore a wide variety of existing and emerging forms and communicate their messages in the rapidly evolving contemporary media environment. Projects by students in the program have been exhibited as public exhibitions, performances and screenings, online/networked game environments, and rich media for PDAs and cell phones. From intimate personal stories with universal human appeal to global collaborative networks to in- depth media critique, IMA-MFA students work to bring resonant messages to the medium.
Admission to the IMA Spring Show is free to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
