In this panel design leaders of a variety of organizations will share with us their best practices around cross-disciplinary collaboration. Each panelist will share “behind the scenes” showcasing how their team structure and work environment enables successful team collaboration. The panel conversation is intended to lead us into a productive discussion about how collaborative structures enable breakthrough innovation.

The panel is hosted by Indhira Rojas, CCA faculty member and founder of Design Theorem. It features Anna Shaw, director of brand at Smart Design; Dani Malik, principal at Hot Studio; Caroline Wiryadinata, senior designer at Fitbit, and Celeste Prevost, designer at Square.

This is a great opportunity for students to learn what to expect once they enter their professional careers. What are the requirements for team collaboration? What can we practice today that will make us great team players?

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.
