  • Composer Kubilay Üner offers a reactive experience with a live presentation of a new composition made in response to the exhibition Angie Bray: Shhhh. The performance will be interspersed with conversation between Üner and Bray.

  • Kathryn Andrews gets some of her best ideas driving around Los Angeles, where the visual contradictions she sees every day find their way into her art. Andrews, who is originally from Mobile, Alabama, is known for the commonplace objects she fabricates from highly polished and painted metal, into which she incorporates inexpensive or borrowed finds, including rented Hollywood props.

Continuing Education Course

SEM: 40


Special Topics: Socially Engaged Art


This project-based studio course is for artists and designers who define their practice as socially engaged or want to refocus their practice in the interest of social justice. The changing reality of what constitutes and who controls the public domain and recent debates in public practices is examined in the process of art making, including interventions and culture jamming, as well as relational and tactical strategies. In addition to in-depth critique and dialogue, course provides technical support, assists with research, views artist projects, and examines the shift “from studio to situation.” Students must have the desire to work outside of the isolation of their studio and are encouraged to have a project in mind before starting this course.
