The exhibition presents the final works of 13 graduating students from LASALLE’s MA Fine Arts programme. Featuring a range of techniques and media including installation, painting, video, photography, sculpture and drawing, the exhibition offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the results achieved by these artists.

The title of this year’s exhibition considers these questions: Are reasonings needed in the process of making meaning and making art? Are all artistic practices biomythographies (à la Audre Lorde) to a certain extent, and that art-making on its own is a form of poetic encounter with different realities? Are fables proxies of life? Do we need some forms of logic to help us maintain temporary closures and make sense of things as we journey to find our voice and vocabulary to speak about our stories and our works? 

The Class of 2023 entered the programme with different personal histories and professional backgrounds. From the beginning of 2022, they have worked to challenge and extend their practice through sustained research, artistic experimentation and dialogue, with the guidance of LASALLE lecturers, supervisors as well as external guests and industry professionals.
