Open to all visual artists, graduate and undergraduate, this three-week studio course set in New York is open to the discussion of interdisciplinary art practices with an emphasis on contemporary dialogues around painting.

Each student is provided with an individual studio space (about 12 x 18 feet) at the AICAD Studios in the DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) district in Brooklyn, right on the East River with a view of the Brooklyn Bridge looking over to Manhattan.

For undergraduates, this course satisfies a studio elective requirement or Interdisciplinary Critique; for graduates, a gradwide elective or Fine Arts seminar requirement.

Curran Hatleberg's photographs are made over long, unhurried intervals of travel across America by car. The photographs, both found or invented, are a fictionalized version of America and its inhabitants. As pictures, the objects, actions, and people depicted strive to mediate and reimagine the current American experience in hopes of communicating a deeper understanding of our shared time and place.

Hatleberg graduated from the University of Colorado and the Yale School of Art. His work has been shown in galleries both nationally and internationally and is included in multiple collections.

He currently teaches photography at the College of the Redwoods.

Join us during International Education Week (November 18-22) for an exhibition that features work by current international students and alumni of CCA’s study-abroad programs.

As artists, we see art and the processes behind it through our own points of view. Stepping into a new culture adds a layer of defining how one interacts in a new environment and may ultimately cause viewpoints to shift and transform.

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.
