curated by:

Following a year during which our collective interactions have primarily occurred virtually, the 22nd Thacher Annual playfully responds to the now ubiquitous phrase, “You’re on mute!” While the impacts of the pandemic have left many feeling disconnected and stifled, Unmuted provides a platform for University of San Francisco student artists to speak out, express themselves, and let their creative voices be heard.

The exhibition presents 64 works by junior and senior majors and minors from USF’s Department of Art + Architecture. With themes ranging from isolation to our dependence on the natural environment, the featured works represent an honest vocalization of emotions, experiences, and discoveries made during the silence of the pandemic. Through these artworks, viewers are invited to reflect on their own experiences during the past year.

Unmuted is presented by USF’s Thacher Gallery and Art History & Museum Studies Thacher Practicum Class led by Nell Herbert. Student curators include Evan Carlson, Shannon Foley, Christina Gazi, Maria Ivanyuk, Julia Kea, Catherine Pluimer, Nora Robbins, Zoe Sun, and Quinna Xia. Exhibited artworks were selected by jurors Jenna Marie Blaire, Eddie Herena, Cynthia Hooper, and Weston Teruya.
