Co-curated by Giant Robot visionary Eric Nakamura and OMCA’s Associate Curator of Art & Material Culture Carin Adams, SuperAwesome presents new or recent works by California and international-based artists affiliated with the influential magazine that brought Asian, trans-Pacific popular culture to mainstream audiences in the United States.

The Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice at California College of the Arts presents the exhibition Many Places at Once.

Decades after the "post-studio" turn announced by Minimalism and Conceptual art in the 1960s, Many Places at Once reconsiders the place of artistic production in our era of creative industries and flexible labor.

Featuring new commissions and existing works by seven international artists, the exhibition presents artworks that call attention to the nuanced circumstances that characterize the economic, social, and technological conditions in which artists work today:

Martin Soto Climent
Rana Hamadeh
Cinthia Marcelle
William Powhida
Li Ran
Ian Wallace

and Real Time and Space

Taken individually, each contemporary work presents a site: a hotel, a notebook, an archive, a network, an event, or a theatrical stage. Together they constitute the “many places” -- physical and conceptual -- that “at once” constitute a reimagined artist’s studio.
