Without is a themed exhibition of works by California MFA students curated by Meleko Mokgosi, graduate student in the UCLA Department of Art. This exhibition begins with the stipulation that all featured artists are either from or descendants of “non-Western” regions and cultures. As there is no trenchant division between “Western” and “non-Western,” especially given today's transcultural context, we apply these terms in the loosest sense. Our definition of “non-Western” includes countries—specifically those in Africa, Asia and Latin/Central America—whose cultural and material histories have often been excluded within the Western canon of art history.
