2014 IAMD Thesis Exhibition by Humboldt Magnussen
Please join the Interdisciplinary Master’s of Art, Media and Design Program and the Graduate Studies Department in celebrating the IAMD Thesis Exhibition of MFA candidate Humboldt Magnussen.
Join the artist on an epic hero’s journey as he completes a series of challenges to examine his family’s Viking roots and ask what it means to be strong. This interactive performance art piece relies on the audience to not only cheer, and encourage the artist but also become members of his band of Vikings and assist him through obstacles in order to prove he is in fact a real Viking.
