Celebrate the opening of the '23-'24 Senior Comps Exhibition at OXY ARTS!

Senior “comps,” or comprehensives, reflect Oxy’s educational philosophy of learning deeply and independently. Comps are the senior-year theses, field research projects, art exhibits, presentations or creative works required by academic majors at Oxy to demonstrate mastery of the subject. Each discipline defines its expectations differently, but they all challenge students to expand and excel intellectually, and place the capstone on their educational experience.

Studio Art majors at Occidental College develop a command of their field and hone their ability to place their work into larger art historical, social, and conceptual frameworks. Projects may include, but are not limited to, the production of a new body of work and/or scholarly research.

This exhibition features the three studio art majors from the Class of 2024 working in photography, ceramic sculpture, and sewn works, accompanied by an installation and performance.
