ZERO1 Garage | 439 South of First Street | San Jose

iLOUNGE: instant/interim/interactive is a flexible community gathering place that supports the occupation of the human body in different ways: lounging, standing, resting, socializing, playing, observing, and being observed.

The modular architectural system was designed to enable temporary community for a minute, an hour, or an evening, and can be configured into different aggregations to support different uses. It was so popular at the Northern Spark Festival and the ZERO1 Biennial that we’ve brought it back.

From January 16 to March 23, the iLounge “playground” fills the expanded ZERO1 Garage lounge area, where a team of architects, designers, and artists will present a program of indoor interventions and activations.

The Way Beyond Art 4: Infinite Screens is coorganized with the Film Program and features Hearsay of the Soul (2012) by the acclaimed filmmaker and artist Werner Herzog. It will be the West Coast premiere of this work. The piece resurrects works by the Dutch Golden Age painter and printmaker Hercules Pieterszoon Segers as cinematic projections in a five-channel video work with a musical score by the composer Ernst Reijseger.

The Wattis will present an accompanying program of weekly talks by CCA Film faculty and Bay Area artists and programmers focused on today’s rapidly evolving media landscape. These presentations will expand the content of the exhibition, further develop the research around these topics, expose students and audiences to a wider breadth of moving-image practices, and incorporate a multitude of voices and perspectives.

The Infinite Screens exhibition and public programs are made possible through the support of the Kadist Art Foundation; Steve Turner Contemporary, Los Angeles; and a Cinema Visionaries grant.

Founding support for CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts programs has been provided by Phyllis C. Wattis and Judy & Bill Timken. Generous support provided by Grants for the Arts / San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund 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.
