Xavier Cázares C ortéz
Some THING about nobody knowing anything for sure
Some THIN G about nobody knowing anything for sure features Southern California-based artist Xavier Cázares Cortéz. Cortéz is an artist\, curator\, writer and e ducator who has shown his work throughout the United States.  The Wignall Museum of Co ntemporary Art is pleased to present a solo exhibition featuring a sprawlin g installation of mixed media wall constructs\, works on paper\, sculptures and vast collections that presented together\, challenge the notion of the fixed object and aesthetics. Through intricate and obsessive collections o f mass-produced ephemera and the incorporation of language onto his works\, Cortéz creates a visual cacophony\, including the viewer in the discourse created by the work and inviting the viewer to make his or her own conclusi ons about the work. Cortéz prompts the viewer to decode the work\, to quest ion their own ‘knowing” of what they’re seeing and experiencing\, and to in sert themselves into the narrative. This exhibition was made possible in pa rt with the generous support of the Chaffey College Foundation\, Vera Dunwo ody\, and the many patrons that responded to our Kickstarter campaign.

Brian Bress
Creative Ideas for Every Season
Brian Bress is a Los Angeles-based artist who fuses sculpture\, photography and video practi ces to investigate how we negotiate our interactions with others and oursel ves.  Bress uses a variety of narrative structures and a discursive logic t hat is slightly disorienting and ambiguous\, resulting in constantly shifti ng points of view and situations that play upon the viewer’s expectations.  The Wignall Museu m is pleased to present the West-coast premier of Bress’ newest video\, Creative Ideas for Every Season\, first screened w ith Cherry and Martin at Art Basel Miami Beach\, 2010.

Allison Alford
Los Angeles-based artist Allison Alford w ill present work consisting of video and performance in the Wignall Museum's Project Space. In her work\, she looks at the vocabulary of ges tures used in relating with digital interfaces. Alford engages the idea of the body as a site for social\, physical and virtual interactivity. She com bines body movements from rituals such as martial arts\, dance\, iPhone app s\, laptop touch pads and Nintendo's Wii Console.  This project was made po ssible with the generous support of the Claremont Graduate University Fried man grant.
