The Wasteland exhibition showcases works of architecture, art, design, and writing produced by students in our five fall 2013 "Waste Land" courses (Architecture, Industrial Design, Diversity Studies, Sculpture, and Writing & Literature.

For Wasteland, five instructors from across the college are thematizing issues around waste in their course, and inviting a so called embedded scientist to come into the studio to provide science instruction relevant to their course.

The Waste Land curricular effort is part of CCA's Exploring Science in the Studio project (eS²), which aims to explore ways to meaningfully integrate science in art and design education.

The project is supported by an ongoing National Science Foundation grant designed to enrich the dialog between materials, aesthetics, skills, and the science of sustainability by allowing students to engage directly with embedded scientists in their studio classrooms.

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.

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.
