California College of the Arts (CCA) is pleased to collaborate with our friends at the Museum of Craft and Design (MCD) for this exhibition that showcases the work of a select group of exceptionally talented Interior Design students.

The museum has extended special free admission for CCA students with valid ID September 21-January 5, 2014.

Focused on design, materials, constructs and atmospheres, the Young Designer’s Show will feature the best of the year’s projects: drawings, renderings, lighting and furniture designs, models, and full-scale material explorations and prototypes.

"The Museum of Craft and Design (MCD) is one of North America’s few institutions dedicated to contemporary practices in craft and design," explains Interior Design chair Cathrine Veikos. "I am so delighted that in April of this year, the Museum of Craft and Design opened a new facility at 2569 Third Street. Even more exciting is the fact that it was designed by CCA alum Gary Hutton (BFA Environmental Studies 1975) and the McCall Design Group."

The Young Designer’s Show 2013: CCA Interior Design Program will coincide with MCD’s New West Coast Design 2 exhibition, which opens October 26, 2013.

Veikos adds: "Museum members and invited designers will celebrate the show on the evening of October 25 to coincide with the MCD’s exciting upcoming exhibition New West Coast Design 2, which will also feature work from CCA faculty members. From the innovative experimentation in studio courses at CCA to the cutting edge of the design profession, the MCD-CCA community connection makes it visible and tangible."

"There is strength in numbers and there is strength in high-quality work no matter what the project or institution may be," says JoAnn Edwards, executive director of the Museum of Craft and Design. "It's our pleasure to join our friends at CCA in creating ongoing opportunities for collaboration, partnership, and artistic excellence in our neighborhood, creating a lively and committed foundation for place-making."

Guest curated by CCA faculty members Megan Werner and Margo Majewska with assistance from CCA Interior Design students.

City of Disappearances focuses on the city as material, site, and situation for the contemporary lived experience. It will feature works from two important collections: the Kadist Art Foundation (located in San Francisco and Paris) and the Zabludowicz Collection (located in London, New York, and Sarvisalo, Finland).

The show is curated by Joseph del Pesco, director of the Kadist Art Foundation and CCA Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice alum, and Elizabeth Neilson, director of the Zabludowicz Collection.

Featured Artists

Michel Auder
Slater Bradley
Martin Boyce
Philip-Lorca diCorcia
John Menick
Enrique Metinides
Yelena Popova
Amie Siegel
Kelley Walker

City of Disappearances involves three distinct but integrated elements: a solo display devoted to one artist from each collection, a new installation of works drawn from both collections, and a room in which artworks of different mediums are shown together.

From the Kadist Art Foundation there is Berlin Remake (2005) by the New York-based artist Amie Siegel; this two-channel work juxtaposes preexisting films of Berlin with contemporary footage of the same locations, presenting a ghostly portrait of a city that has been a prominent protagonist in world conflict.

From the Zabludowicz Collection comes a selection of hard-hitting reportage captured by Enrique Metinides, a Mexico City-based photographer, between 1949 and 1995.

The show will include a newly configured sculptural installation by the Scottish artist Martin Boyce; the work is appearing for the first time in San Francisco. Boyce references architectural and modernist design and materials to create environments that blend functionality and aesthetics, to uncanny effect.

There will be video, painting, and photography by Slater Bradley, Yelena Popova, and Kelley Walker from the Zabludowicz Collection and Michel Auder, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, and John Menick from the Kadist Art Foundation.
