A new exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego features emerging artists whose works grapple with the schisms between lived and perceived experience.

“Eccentricity Has Room,” which opens at the museum’s downtown location at sundown on Thursday, includes work by 13 artists graduating from UC San Diego’s Master of Fine Arts program.

The artwork, which ranges from oils and prints to video and electronic installations, reflects not only the cultivation of the artists’ individual practices, but also the community and camaraderie that they built along the way at the university.

The exhibition is co-curated by UC San Diego doctoral students Erika Barbosa and Viona Deconinck along with MCASD Assistant Curator Anthony Graham.

The museum at 1100 Kettner Boulevard is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily except Wednesdays. The exhibit runs through May 27.
