The works included here and <a href="http://www.centerforartandthought.org" target="_blank">online</a> challenge and exceed how Filipino bodies, affects, and processes are conventionally understood <em>and</em> how they are entangled with other queer bodies and practices virtually and offline.</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">The Internet, which is seemingly boundless in its sublime scope and its spatial dimensions, is ironically replete with social and communal boundaries: some cohere normative modes of communality, while others de-center or unsettle real-time or real-world social relations and expectations. Even at its most evanescent, the virtual is never detached from the offline world and vice versa. <em>Queer Sites and Sounds</em> starts with the premise that, as Jos&eacute; Mu&ntilde;oz writes in his book <em>Cruising Utopia</em>, &ldquo;&lsquo;queerness&rsquo; allows us to question or even feel that, in this globalized digital and new media present, something is amiss ... something just doesn't feel right, but that's alright.&rdquo;</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;"><em>Queer Sites and Sounds</em> is a timely exhibition in that Filipino queer digital and new media cultures continue to be an understudied field, despite the saturation of digital and new media technologies within the Philippines and throughout the diaspora. Though there have been Filipino Internet ethnographies prior to Web 2.0 as well as seminal studies of race online, Filipino queer digital and new media cultures represent a highly focused area of cultural phenomenon that is in need of intellectual and creative interventions.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">Many questions are ripe for exploration: How does the exchange of information within the Filipino diaspora via the Internet unsettle or perhaps affirm Western notions of gender and sexuality? How might we think of the ontologies of digital and media technology as always already queer? How do Filipino queer digital and new media practices overlap other queer communities of color? How do we study these queer diasporic digital entanglements? How might we deploy <em>queer</em> as an analytic frame to discuss the forms which content takes&mdash;forms that go beyond the expected, that make us scratch our heads, that leave us feeling unsettled or that something is indeed amiss?</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">The <em>Queer Sites and Sounds</em> exhibition at Culver Center of the arts features work by Eliza Barrios, Kiam Marcelo Junio, Kat Larson, Miguel Libarnes, Gina Osterloh, Jeffrey Augustine Songco, and Ronaldo Wilson. Works by additional artists may be found online at <a href="http://www.centerforartandthought.org" target="_blank">www.centerforartandthought.org</a>.</p> <p class="p2" style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">Starting from the perspectives of Filipinos around the world, the Center for Art and Thought harnesses the potential of digital and new media technologies in order to foster dialogues between artists, scholars, and the broader public.&nbsp; A web-based nonprofit organization, we believe that the convergence between art and critical thought is a crucial way to generate new modes of knowledge production and creative and critical lenses for understanding and transforming global conditions.&nbsp;</p> <p class="p2" style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;"><em>Queer Sites and Sounds</em> is presented at UC Riverside&rsquo;s ARTSblock&rsquo;s Culver Center of the Arts. The exhibition has been curated by Jan Christian Bernabe, the Operations, New Media and Curatorial Director for the Center for Art and Thought, along with assistance from Clare Counihan and Matthew Andrews. Support for the exhibition has been provided by the California Institute of Contemporary Arts, UC Riverside&rsquo;s Queer Lab, UC Riverside&rsquo;s Department of Media and Cultural Studies, and donors to the Center for Art and Thought. General support for UCR ARTSblock programs has been provided by UC Riverside&rsquo;s College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, and the City of Riverside.</p> <h2 class="spaced-out"><span style="font-size: small;">One-Day Symposium, Free Admission - Thursday, October 16, 2014, 12pm - 7pm</span><br /><span style="font-size: small;">Reception, Free Admission - Thursday, October 16, 2014, 7pm - 8pm</span></h2> Sat, 30 Aug 2014 16:37:07 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/la/Events/list Lisa Riboli - UCR Barbara and Art Culver Center of the Arts - August 18th - September 14th <p class="p2" style="text-align: justify;"><em>Untitled (hot cold)</em> is a series of vignettes depicting rudimentary scientific experiments that present cause and effect. Layered on top of these events, an arm comes into the picture plane, as if on top of the video screen, and begins making marks as the experiments play out. These performative gestures transform the empirical narratives. Each series of marks remain abstract, while also exemplifying various states of intention or volition. A quasi-chalk board is gleaned, questioning the advancement of knowledge through abstracted visual means. The juxtaposition emphasizes the subjectivity of the viewer, questioning modes of interpretation. </p> <p class="p2" style="text-align: justify;">Laura Riboli&rsquo;s art works explore the way in which formal abstraction is understood through the body, in time. Often employing the look of science fiction, the works examine the perceptual machinations by which we come to understand physical properties and virtual experiences. </p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">Laura Riboli&rsquo;s work has been included in exhibitions at The Hammer Museum (Los&nbsp;Angeles), Taxter &amp; Spengemann (New York), LACMA (Los Angeles), Laura Bartlett&nbsp;Gallery (London), and Museo d&rsquo;Arte Contemporanea Roma (Rome). She is&nbsp;represented by Wallspace, New York. She lives and works in Los Angeles.</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;"><br /> <br /> The Culver Center Digital Mural Project Series is curated by adjunct media curator Jeff Cain. He is faculty at the USC Roski School of Art and Design, and director of the Shed Research Institute.<br /> <br /> The Culver Digital Mural Project at UCR ARTSblock&rsquo;s Culver Center of the Arts presents a series of changing projects on the two screens inside the fa&ccedil;ade&rsquo;s glass kiosks that face the pedestrian mall.

The artist&rsquo;s&nbsp;work, which equally engages the histories of documentary and fine art photography, investigates collective memory, ritual, and identity.

One unifying thread throughout the series, emphasized by the title, is a black backdrop upon which staged scenes are captured. The artist&rsquo;s sculptural treatment of commonplace objects and his own household plants serve as uncanny meditations on his relationship to nature within a domestic setting. <em>House Party</em>&nbsp;depicts a set-like interior space, a scene at once evoking quotidian reality and a dreamlike artificiality.</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;"><em>Flash!&nbsp;</em>contemporary art series features single works made within the last year.
