MA Curatorial Practice presents Sanctuary, curated by Piper Ross Ferriter, an installation of works that suggests a twenty-first-century reading of Leo Tolstoy’s What Is Art?. Exhibiting artists’ work exemplifies what Tolstoy’s thesis might look like through a contemporary lens; their artistic practices illustrate a shared conviction in art as an expressive form of understanding with the capacity to engage empathy and establish common ground.
