The CBC Interviews Séamus Gallagher MFA ’26

Posted on September 28, 2023

Leah Collins of the CBC interviewed MFA Candidate Séamus Gallagher about being nominated for the Sobey Art Award, considered the top honor in Canadian Contemporary Art, coming to grad school, and their solo exhibition “Mother Memory Cellophane.”

On coming to CMU, Gallagher said: “I decided to apply to Carnegie Mellon’s three-year MFA program because it’s so small, there’s so much support, and it’s also just so interdisciplinary. I’ve seen a few artists go through it and their practice radically changes. I’m happy for that to happen if it does — though I won’t force it.”
