The first in a series of four UIC MFA Thesis Exhibitions in Studio Arts, Photography, Moving Image, and New Media Arts.

Body Double: an actor who substitutes for a leading performer, especially in distance shots or scenes not involving the face, such as close-ups of a portion of the body. These four artists are all engaged in conversation about notions of the stand-in as a means of pointing to a person, thing or idea that can't be seen directly. Here, the body double is both the prop and the viewer.
