"Dialogic I & II" is an exhibition exchange project between Aalto University and Georgia Southern University (GSU), USA. The aim is to create new forms of cooperation and cultural exchanges between universities and to promote the international visibility of Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture and its students.

Exhibition “Dialogic II” is featuring the works of GSU students Nicole Bovasso, Meredith Conger, Cyndy Epps, Kyle Hooten, Nikolaus James, Jessamy McManus, Usman Oladeinde, Courtney Ryan ja Makaili Taylor.

"The project is entirely student-driven. We have done everything ourselves, from the original contact to the design and implementation of the project", tells Master's student of Art Eija Ranta from Aalto University.

The idea for the art exchange came about from the GSU Associate Professor Derek Larson’s experiences in Finland, as he was an artist-in-residence in Arteles Creative Center lead by Teemu Räsänen.

For the first part of the project, “Dialogue I”, Aalto Master’s students Teemu Räsänen, Eija Ranta and Jaakko Leeve exhibited their works at the University Gallery of Georgia Southern University, Center for Art & Theatre in January 2018. All three study in the Visual Culture and Contemporary Art ViCCA Programme.

Date: 14 March - 2 April, 2018, Mon–Thu 7.30 am–7 pm, Fri 7.30 am–6 pm
