Jennifer Henry MFA Thesis Exhibition

The FOMO is palpable. Fear Of Missing Out dominates our contemporary social structures and colors our interpersonal engagements like no other time in history. The internet - by way of social media - lures us from one expectation laden experience to the next, serving as the wobbly window pane through which we can observe all we’ve forsaken in the quest for something newer, better, more. In her thesis exhibition, “you had to be (t)here” UNLV MFA Studio Arts candidate Jennifer Henry examines the phenomenon of remote experience through the presentation of social media clips gathered during 3 site specific performances that have already occurred elsewhere. Now only accessible through a handheld communication device like those her participants used to capture the experience. Have you already missed out? Or is this your last chance to share in Henry's expansive work before it is truly, all over?
