Abstract

When the BFA class of 2019 chose Fever Dreams as a title for their graduation exhibition, they embraced this ambiguity. For them Fever Dreams captures the intensity of their anxiety about the world: how are we going to get out of the impending environmental collapse? How can we escape the glamourized violence, addiction and the exploitation that we see all around us? How can we get away from the oversaturation of information, cultural disorientation and denied identities? How can we stop the “perpetual and immutable state of conflict”?
