John McVay's Man In Uniform
Come visit MFA Candidate John McVay's Midway solo art show, John McVay's Man In Uniform.
The work addresses an interwoven relationship between media culture, nostalgia, and identity. Cutting up and reassembling tidbits of childhood memories can help one to understand where they’ve come from and how they got here. Through the lens of a love/hate relationship with nostalgia and distant characters from popular media’s past that have become like family members, the work explores a dismantling of nostalgia and a reconstruction of self that leads to interstitial revelations and becomes a new guiding force for understanding.
