the Exhibition

Lord Hall Gallery is pleased to present Between You and Me, the 15th annual Without Borders Festival and MFA thesis exhibition. This year's festival will showcase the work of UMaine Intermedia MFA candidates Alicia Champlin, Kate Dawson, Eleanor Kipping and Wade Warman.

Diverse in medium and methodology, this exhibition presents a range of intermedial practices that explore themes of interpersonal mediation, such as identity, sexuality, spirituality and communication. Through experimental hybridizations of installation, sound, performance, sculpture, and electronic media, Warman, Kipping, Dawson and Champlin find common cause in the expression of relationships, especially those of individuals interfacing with the social systems that define them.

Between You and Me will run from May 17th to June 30th with an opening reception on Thursday, May 17th at 5:00 p.m. The opening reception will include a performance in the Innovative Media Research and Commercialization Center AP/PE Space at 7:30 p.m.

Lord Gallery and the IMRC Center are located on the University of Maine campus in Orono.
