  • Looking at the recent works of Sebastian Stumpf one finds an interplay between performance and the recording of performance, between the execution of a physical act and the documentation of it by means of a camera. [He] operates in two distinct realms: in the empty spaces of contemporary art institutions and in urban settings with their preexisting orders. […] An inconspicuous architectural detail suddenly becomes the catalyst for a physical exploit…. The art gallery becomes a space for action.

Continuing Education Course

Integrating the Arts for Educators

Learn how to empower students to think critically and creatively through interdisciplinary art projects that are influenced by the current exhibit in the Ben Maltz Gallery. Begin the day by viewing and discussing the current exhibition in Otis’ Ben Maltz Art Gallery “Freeway Studies #2: Inside the Quad”. To create this exhibition, curators Meg Linton and Jeseca Dawson embarked on an unplanned journey through artist studios in Los Angeles’ diverse and complex metropolis. The exhibition is about serendipity, or the element of surprise that occurs when allowing the journey to unfold naturally rather than predetermined. Using the exhibit as a springboard, you’ll engage in rich discussions about contemporary art and artists in this region. Then you’ll be guided to produce a work of art that is influenced or inspired by an aspect of the exhibit. Workshop covers themes and questions regarding contemporary art; provides ways to enrich student learning; and builds student’s self-confidence, motivation, and self-discipline.
