U.T. Dallas To Feature Student Exhibition, ‘Life In Suspension,’ May 17 to June 1

“Life In Suspension,” a senior honors project by University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) undergraduate D.M. Avram, will be on display from May 17 to June 1 in the Mezzanine Gallery of the Visual Arts Building on the UTD campus.

The exhibition is free and will be open to the public during normal gallery hours, which are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Friday and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, May 17, in the Main Gallery of the Visual Arts Building beginning at 6:30 p.m.

“Life in Suspension” is a photographic installation featuring a collection of palladium prints created from large format negatives. Avram uses self-portraiture to examine the pressures and uncertainties she has experienced at this particular turning point in her life. “My photography relies on personal experience for its point of departure,” she said. “Ultimately, my goal is to try to speak to the common experiences we share.”
