Ben Belknap

Ben Belknap is an artist and musician who lives and works in Oakland. His artwork consists primarily of small-scale, richly glazed ceramic sculpture. In 2003 he received a BA from CCA and has since had art at various galleries around the Bay Area and elsewhere.

His work can be seen at the Compound Gallery and Studios in Oakland, a very successful cooperative gallery and studio established by CCA alumni.

Carol Koffel

Carol Koffel states: "I create site-specific installations using transparent catchments suspended from masonry line to represent ideal habitats. Porcelain vessels teeter without attachment so that they register and reflect natural forces within the spatial and visual realm. The array of line and form takes on structure to personify conscious and unconscious difference."

Koffel has exhibited at the New Leaf Design Center received her BS at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. She received an MFA from CCA in 2011.

Erik Scollon

Erik Scollon is an artist and writer based in Oakland. In 2008 he was selected to participate in Yerba Buena Center for the Art's Bay Area Now 5, and his work has been seen in art galleries, craft fairs, museum shows, design blogs, and gay biker bars.

He received an MFA in ceramics in 2007 and an MA in Visual and Critical Studies in 2008, both from CCA. He is represented by Romer Young Gallery in San Francisco and his next show will open in April 2013.

This exhibition is the result of an interdisciplinary Diversity Studies course titled Multiculturalism and Identity. It features the artworks by a group of artists and designers investigating current and historical perceptions concerning culture and identity in everyday life, and its complex relationship to artistic and cultural production. Issues under examination include the representation of space -- both physical and psychological -- as well as public space (urban fabric) versus private space (memory and history).

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.
