  • York Chang (b. 1973, St. Louis, MO) is an interdisciplinary artist who uses forensic and archival information systems as supports for poetic gestures and alternate histories, in order to interrogate the aesthetic conventions of authority which often serve to blur the line between fiction and reality. He earned both his BFA (1996) and Juris Doctorate (2001) from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). York Chang lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, and is represented by Greene Exhibitions.

  • Oliver Kellhammer is an independent artist, writer and researcher, who seeks, through his botanical interventions and social art practice, to demonstrate nature’s surprising ability to recover from damage. His recent work has focused on the psychosocial effects of climate change, cleaning up contaminated soils, reintroducing prehistoric trees to landscape damaged by industrial logging and cataloging the ecology of brownfield ecologies. He currently works as a lecturer in sustainable systems at Parsons in New York City.
     
  • In this performance I try to summarize In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

Street Photography


The 2011 exhibition Art in The Streets at The Geffen Contemporary in downtown Los Angeles drew record crowds and confirmed the influence of the urban environment on the way we look and see. Photography has played a vital role in the development of this influence. The tradition of street photography emerged early in the twentieth century with modernist masters Henri Cartier-Bresson and Alfred Stieglitz, and expanded with contributions by Weegee, Robert Frank, and Lee Friedlander, among others. Join Otis Chair Emeritis, Ave Pildas on an exploration of the streets and sites of Southern California. Capture the moment. Discover what, when, where and how to shoot photographs on the street. Learn the etiquette of street photography, the do’s and don’ts of shooting, and your rights as a photographer. Acquaint yourself with equipment and techniques. Course focuses on subject matter, composition, and developing your own personal style. We shoot as a group in historic locations like downtown Los Angeles, Venice Beach and Hollywood Boulevard. In the classroom, we will look at examples of successful street photography and critique the photographs that result from our shoots.
