X can be a variable, an amount, or that yet to be named, and as such is an apt descriptor for the deftness with which the University of Delaware Department of Art and Design faculty responds to shared contemporary experience and visual art production today.  Faculty X showcases the most recent output of 16 members of the department, and in keeping with the strength of this largest four-year art program in the state, the exhibition aligns with trends critical to art, theory, and criticism. The diverse works of art on view present investigations of the nature of images and semiotics; the state of medium specificity; developments in communication and electronic technologies; and crucial social, economic, and political concerns.
