The Wasteland exhibition showcases works of architecture, art, design, and writing produced by students in our five "Waste Land" courses (Interior Design, Interaction Design, Diversity Studies, Sculpture, and Visual Studies during the fall 2012 semester.

For Wasteland, five instructors from across the college are thematizing issues around waste in their course, and inviting an “embedded scientist” to come into the studio to provide science instruction relevant to their course.

The Waste Land program aims to explore ways to meaningfully integrate science in art and design education.

This year marks the Golden Jubilee of the American Studio Glass art movement. Fifty years ago, in 1962, the seminal workshops that sparked it were organized by Harvey Littleton at the Toledo Museum of Art. He also started the first hot glass program at an American university, and several of his students went on to form glass programs at universities around the country.

Glass education at CCA was founded by one of these pioneers, Marvin Lipofsky, in 1967. CCA has been an integral part of the movement for decades, educating many of the artists who have risen to prominence since.

CCA celebrates this historically significant year with this exhibition of works in glass by alumni of the college, curated by Maria Porges.

On November 10-11, the Crucible, a nonprofit industrial arts educational facility located in Oakland, hosts a related conference with demonstrations, presenters, and panel discussions.

From October 27 through March 24, 2013, the Oakland Museum of California presents a special exhibition of approximately 35 works, Playing With Fire: Artists of the California Glass Movement, which will include many CCA faculty and alumni. It is one of more than 120 museums nationwide presenting a special glass exhibition this year.

The legendary exhibition Live in Your Head: When Attitudes Become Form, presented in 1969 at Kunsthalle Bern, Germany, has been exhaustively discussed, researched, and examined. It has inspired essays, books, conferences . . . and now, at the CCA Wattis Institute, another exhibition.

In September 2012, Wattis director Jens Hoffmann will tackle the history and the myths surrounding When Attitudes Become Form with a new “sequel” exhibition, When Attitudes Became Form Become Attitudes.

The original show, curated by Harald Szeemann, featured 69 conceptual artists working in fields known today as post-Minimalism, Arte Povera, Land art, and beyond. The Wattis exhibition will feature more than 80 artists, all working within the legacy of Conceptual art, including the following:

Simon Fujiwara
Claire Fontaine
Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla
Abraham Cruzvillegas
Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset
Ryan Gander
Walead Beshty
Renata Lucas
Adriana Lara
Carey Young

The show will also bring together archival material, floor plans, installation images, and ephemera from the 1969 show.

Generous support for When Attitudes Became Form Become Attitudes provided by C. Ross Sappenfield and Laura Brugger, Robin Wright and Ian Reeves, and Laura and Joe Sweeney.

Founding support for CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts programs has been provided by Phyllis C. Wattis and Judy and Bill Timken. General support for the Wattis Institute provided by the Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation, Grants for the Arts / San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund, Ann Hatch and Paul Discoe, and the CCA Curator’s Forum.

Touring the Social Imaginary

CATALYSTRANSIT is a project organized by Ana Labastida, circulating through the Bay Area’s Casual Carpool from Fruitvale Avenue in Oakland to Fremont Street in San Francisco, that questions how we interpret the mundane moments during commutes.

To participate, or for more information, visit www.catalystransit.com.

This project is part of Touring the Social Imaginary, a series of exhibitions and participatory, public programs across the Bay Area organized by PLAySPACE, that map the social imaginary using research-intensive processes to ask questions about places and the people that inhabit them.
