Amy Pierce takes an interdisciplinary approach to her research spanning: art, anthropology, sociology, psychology, history and women’s studies and to her mediums which include: photography, performance, installation, textile, sound, videography, text, and audience engagement. A recent graduate of the Intermedia MFA program and currently an IPhD candidate, she explores contemporary American wedding culture with a focus on how the current climate of expected perfection affects the bride’s experience of the wedding ritual.

The exhibit runs from August 9 to September 27th, 2013 in the Lord Hall Gallery and features the work of seven graduating MFA students.
