Please join California College of the Arts and the Center for Art and Public Life for the fourth annual IMPACT Social Entrepreneurship Awards finalist team presentations, including the announcement of the winning teams and featuring a keynote presentation by Heather Fleming of Catapult Design.

Finalists under consideration for an IMPACT Award will give presentations to the audience and a panel of judges. The judges will quickly retire to deliberate, and at the end of the evening they will announce the winning teams and their award amounts.

The awarded projects will each receive up to $10,000. All of them must emphasize interdisciplinary engagement, social entrepreneurship, and collaborative relationships with community partners, and they must have a detailed action plan to execute their summer 2014 project that supports social and humanitarian goals.

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.
