ENGAGE at CCA students from the interdisciplinary studio course Locative Media, taught by faculty member Benjamin Wood, culminate the semester with a video projection onto the sails of the 120-year-old Alma, a wooden-hulled scow schooner built in 1891, which is situated at the San Francisco Maritime historic pier on Hyde Street.

CCA students will beam their projectors onto the sails of the Alma schooner to reveal the unique video works.

Based loosely on the poem "Rime of the Ancient Mariner," and using one-of-a-kind material retrieved from filmmaker Craig Baldwin's vault, this will be a one-off event and solo opportunity to witness projection and maritime worlds collide with past and future.

About the Locative Media Course

Combining digital video production and onsite projection techniques, the emerging practice of projection offers media makers the opportunity to directly insinuate their work within architectural space, its objects, and surroundings.

Students learn essential software techniques and gain practical experience setting up projections in unique locations.

In connection with this media component, students conduct a series of urban research experiments designed to introduce multiple methods of critical investigation and engagement for their selected areas of projection.

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.
