Intermedia Programs symposium features latest faculty work at IMRC

Faculty from the University of Maine Intermedia Programs are showcasing their latest work — a diverse array of analog and digital media demonstrating contemporary artistic practice — during their 2023 symposium at the Innovation Media and Innovative Media Research and Commercialization (IMRC) Center.

The exhibition includes artwork from Sheridan Kelley Adams, Arturo Camacho, Bethany Engstrom and Susan Smith. 

Adams’ “When Art Closes a Door” features a series of works in which technology translates idea into form. Camacho’s “Nostos” combines personal narrative and memory in ways that push the boundaries of artistic expression, and reference his experience of grief and struggle to remain connected to his past while navigating life in a new country. 

Engstrom’s “Stone Works” uses multiple modes of video in an installation exploring both place and ideas of labor and motherhood. Smith’s “Absence of Urgency,” references issues of climate urgency and environmental stewardship with her monumental paintings and guerrilla garden cart. 

The symposium exhibition at the IMRC is open 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Monday–Friday.
