  • 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.

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.

Graduate Fine Arts

Alumnus Bruce Yonemoto

Media artist Bruce Yonemoto ('79, MFA) has collaborated with his brother Norman on film, video, and multimedia installations since 1978. The Yonemotos’ work is based on notions of difference and visibility, and much of their work appropriates commercial film and television imagery. Operating between the world of the art gallery and media clichés and myths of American culture, the Yonemotos exploit this relationship of art and commerce.

Alumna Coleen Sterritt

For nearly three decades since departing Otis, Sterritt (’79 MFA Fine Arts) has explored formal aspects of weight and balance, surface and texture through her sculptures, often beginning with a material that enters her awareness, and inevitably involves some form of stacking.

Alumnus Roberto Gil de Montes

Roberto Gil de Montes ('72, MFA Fine Arts '76), born in Guadalajara, Mexico, came to the United States in 1965. He received his MFA from Otis, and works in painting, photography, sculpture and ceramics.

Alumna Suzanne Caporael

Suzanne Caporael ('77, MFA Fine Arts '79) began her career with exhibitions at the Newport Harbor Art Museum, The Museum of Contemporary Art and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Alumnus Norman Zammitt

Norman Zammitt was (1931-2007) raised on the Mohawk [Caughnawaga Indian] reservation near Montreal. After serving in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War, he returned to America, graduated from Pasadena City College in 1957, and earned his MFA ('61) from Otis in 1961. He taught art at California Institute of the Arts, USC, and UCLA during his long career as an artist.

Alumnus Masami Teraoka

Masami Teraoka ('64, MFA Fine Arts '68) was born in Onomichi, Japan in 1936. In 1961, attracted by its individualism and freedom, he moved to California. His work has been exhibited world-wide and is represented in such museums as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Hirshhorn Museum, and the Tate Modern, London.

Alumnus Barry Le Va

Barry Le Va ('64, MFA Fine Arts '67), born in 1941 in Long Beach, studied architecture and math before Otis, where he first “knocked art off the pedestal,” exhibiting directly on the floor.

Alumnus Jeffrey Vallance on KCRW's Art Talk

Jeffrey Vallance: The Medium is the Message

By Hunter Drohojowska-Philp
 
Jeffrey Vallance's serious work as a artist, which began while still attending high school in the San Fernando Valley, is defined by a consistency within an extremely varied and superficially innocent collection of drawings, sculptures, books, performances, videos and life adventures.
