The featured designers include CCA faculty members Bob Aufuldish, Jeremy Mende, Martin Venezky, Eric Heiman, Christopher Simmons, Emily McVarish, Geoff Kaplan, Brett McFadden, and Scott Thorpe, and current student James Edmondson. Graduate Design faculty member Megan Lynch also contributed interviews to the publication.

In conjunction with the exhibition The Way Beyond Art 4: Infinite Screens, the Wattis Institute presents weekly talks and panel discussions in which CCA faculty and Bay Area artists and programmers examine issues surrounding moving-image works in the age of infinite screens.

Tonight:
Taking up Werner Herzog's impulse to appropriate visual art history and repurpose it as a time-based, audio-enhanced, digitally projected display on multiple gallery screens, Craig Baldwin's slide talk politicizes the practice with a more populist consideration of outre sources -- "low" art, pop culture, and even industrial artifacts -- parlaying them into an almost perverse (to Herzog, perhaps) hybridization and complication of their "original" intentions and subjectivities. (image above is a still from Spectres of the Spectrum)

Infinite Screens is co-organized with the Film Program at CCA.

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.

The architect and MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang is founder and principal of Studio Gang Architects, a Chicago-based collective of architects, designers, and thinkers whose projects confront pressing contemporary issues. Through her practice, Gang seeks to respond to and reframe questions that lie locally (site, culture, people) and resound globally (density, climate, sustainability).

She roots her designs in both architectural form and idea-driven content toward achieving a compelling whole, and she often arrives at design solutions through investigations and collaborations across disciplines.

Recent Projects

  • the design of Northerly Island Park, a 91-acre former airfield on Chicago's lakefront that is now under construction
  • the Solar Carve Tower, a commercial high-rise shaped by the sun that abuts the High Line in Manhattan
  • the Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo, an educational pavilion and landscape that also functions as stormwater infrastructure

Since founding Studio Gang in 1997, Gang has gone on to win numerous honors, among them a MacArthur Fellowship, an Academy Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and an Emerging Voices Award from the Architectural League of New York.

In 2009 she was named a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects. Her work with Studio Gang has been published and exhibited widely, most notably at the International Venice Biennale, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the National Building Museum in Washington DC.

A distinguished graduate of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Gang has taught at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and IIT, where her studios have focused on cities, ecologies, materials, and technologies.

Reveal, her first volume on Studio Gang's work and working process, was released in 2011. Her firm’s first solo exhibition, Building: Inside Studio Gang Architects, opened at the Art Institute of Chicago in September 2012 and will run through February 24, 2013.

The 2012-13 Architecture Lecture Series is funded by Grants for the Arts / San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund; Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP; Jensen Architects; John Marx / Form4 Architecture; Perkins+Will; Pfau Long Architecture Ltd.; STUDIOS Architecture; WSP Flack+Kurtz; ARCH Art Supply; BraytonHughes Design Studios; GCI; Long & Levit LLP; SFMOMA A+D Forum; Tom Eliot Fisch; Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture; Blasen Landscape Architecture; John A.

How are narrative structures used to provoke, communicate, and engage audiences? This question will be explored at this roundtable, facilitated by Cheryl Dunye and featuring other CCA faculty (see below) from a range of disciplines who engage in the exploration of narrative.

These practitioners will discuss their use of recent developments in narrative in their own work and teaching. This event, a kickoff to the Graduate Spring Symposium, introduces the Narrative (Inter)Actions performance and lecture series through a consideration of narrative across a variety of media, and by examining tools for engaging and understanding stories of all sorts.

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.

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.
