  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.
  • Bring family and friends to reconnect with fellow alumni at the studio of Albert Valdez ('10) following Brewery ArtWalk, an open studio weekend with over 100 participating resident artists.

  • Creative Action and the Otis Community Radio class present weekly broadcasts each Monday.

     

    This week from 5:00 - 6:00 pm is The Girls Room with DJ Lonesome (Jaclyn Arellano), DJ Filth (Mady Preece), DJ Duchamp’s Urinal (Carly Goldstein). In this political climate, it is finally time to take charge of our own bodies and image. No more housewife norms to determine what a woman should look like. Join us in conversation with the tools of music and noise to express what it means to be a woman. We will challenge the definitions and misconceptions about masculinity and femininity, creating a space where women can feel free to ask questions and get answers from other women.

Tuning the Room Calendar

Anna Craycroft has designed Tuning the Room as an experimental tool for the Otis College Community to use as a resource to hold classes, workshops, and educational gatherings. The installation invites explorations of behavior, voices, the transfer of knowledge, and the systems we use to measure and analyze these ineffable experiences.

HOW TO RESERVE  We invite the Otis Community to visit the space before making reservation. Anna Craycroft and the Gallery Staff are available to consult and help facilitate interesting ways to engage with the installation that fit with curricular and group needs. The space is open to reserve during gallery hours Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm. After-hours and weekend times may be available upon request. Check calendar below for open dates and times.

To start reservation process, email galleryinfo@otis.edu and please include: name, contact information, date and times preferred, name of class or title of event, number of people, and short description of activity. You will receive a reply with more information, any questions, and confirmation of reservation.

RULES OF USE  A full list of guidelines will be sent in response to reservations. Classes and groups are welcome to bring in materials and use the gallery as a site for production during reserved time, but must take all materials and artwork out when done and return the space to its original state. Be advised that reserved times are not entirely private during public gallery hours, Tue-Fri, 10am-5pm / Sat-Sun, 12-4pm. The public may come in while classes and activities are in progress.
