Fourth Wall Panel Review 2020
Each year the Graduate Program at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts brings together a panel of distinguished artists, curators, and writers to consider work submitted by MFA thesis students in PAFA's program. This year's 13th annual event panelists were Zoë Charlton, Alex Paik, and Jason Stopa.
Meant to collapse the wall between artists and the procedures that determine their opportunities, the panel concludes with each panelist selecting two outstanding students whose work shows great professional promise. This year, Charlton, Paik, and Stop each selected Rachel D'Angelo and Shannon Murphy from the class of 2021 submissions for this exhibition.
