UNT CVAD Welcomes Masha Vlasova, Lecturer in Foundations
The CVAD Foundations Program welcomes Masha Vlasova as the Lecturer in Foundations. Masha holds an MFA from the Yale University School of Art. A recipient of Fulbright Fellowship in Filmmaking; Juncture Fellowship from Yale Law School; a Research Fellowship from Central Asian Studies Institute; a Film Making Grant from the Association for Central Asian Civilizations and Silk Road Studies, Masha comes to College of Visual Arts and Design at the University of North Texas via teaching in the Department of Art at the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga and the School of Art, Architecture + Design at Indiana University, Bloomington.
Masha's professional practice is time-based and installation. Masha's work investigates memories as they unfold in cityscape across national borders. Masha's work also examines the questions of translation and belonging; the duality of identity by using the artist's own body. Masha's work has been exhibited in various individual and group exhibitions, including in Smack Mellon, New York, NY; ARTSPACE, New Haven, CT; Vox Populi, Philadelphia, PA; Aspekte Galerie, Munich, Germany.
Masha has taught a wide variety of courses in Foundations, Sculpture, Digital Art, and Digital Video/Video Art, and will be the lead faculty in Design I in the CVAD Foundations Program.
Please join us in welcoming Masha to our CVAD community!
