Course instructor Jeff Gibson will be Skyping from New York.

This course is a collaboration with Herekeke, a nonprofit arts organization located on a private ranch in the remote community of Lama, New Mexico (20 miles north of Taos).

Instructor Jeffrey Gibson is joined by guest artist sculptor Rune Olsen, who participates in group discussions and is available for individual and group critiques.

The course is structured so that students pursue an interdisciplinary studio practice, while also taking part in a critical thinking seminar-type atmosphere -- but over a campfire in the mountains of northern New Mexico under a magnificent sky!

Prerequisite: completion of sophomore level and instructor approval (3 credits)

For undergraduates, this course satisfies a studio elective, upper-division Interdisciplinary Studio, or Interdisciplinary Critique.
For graduates, this course satisfies a gradwide elective, Fine Arts Seminar, or Studio Practice.

As we grow closer to Valentine's Day, we can't help but consider the different ways that love has fallen (or has yet to fall) into respective places in our lives.

This collective body of work explores love and its many connotations through absence, power, and tangibility.

The title, EVOL (a reflection on LOVE), holds an ambitious wardrobe of many colors -- recognizable yet mysterious, overstated or at times subtle.

The work strives to define the mirror-like dualism that exists between the good and darker sides of love, and those who partake in its passing and hopeful rooting.

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.

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.
