As an artist-curated and student-organized show, the 2011 California Institute of the Arts MFA Grad Exhibition will present a diverse group of artists who are advancing the boundaries of critical art practice. This year’s exhibition will be curated by artists Eve Fowler and Alexandro Segade.
For this year’s exhibition, the Farley Building will be transformed into an experimental exhibition space. The 15,500 square foot warehouse is in the neighborhood of Eagle Rock and the exhibition will run from June 25th through July 10th. This space reflects the structure and ethos at the heart of the CalArts program—a laboratory for expanding critical art discourse.
There will be a screening of video works at REDCAT: the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater on DATE in conjunction with the exhibition at the Farley Building.
The exhibition includes the work of: Tony Banuelos, Donna R Brown, Tyler Calkin, Amy Howden-Chapman, Fiona Connor, Valerie Green, Abel Baker Gutierrez, Mette Hersoug, Kenyatta A.C. Hinkle, Ian Hokin, Jake Jones, Keaton Macon, Simone Montemurno, Melodie Mousset, Claire Nereim, Joe Post, Andy Robert, Monica Rodriguez, Ariane Roesch, Josh Segura, Zachary Sharrin, Cammie Staros, Ramak Fazel, Rohini Kapil, Jinyoung Koh, Vivian Lin, Thomas Macker, Michala Paludan, Nicole Nayeon Kim, Arjuna Neuman, Kean O’Brien, Lee Ann Paynter, Clifford Landon Pun, Marisa Sciabarrasi, Molly Stinchfield, and Lam Nathan Vương.
Eve Fowler’s work has been on view at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco), Participant Inc. (New York), and SFMOMA, among other places. She is also co-founder of Artist Curated Projects which supports and nurtures the projects and ideas of a wide community of artists. Alexandro Segade is a video and performance artist whose solo projects have been presented at LAXART, REDCAT, and Vox Populi (Philadelphia). Segade is a founding member of the performance collective, My Barbarian, who have had solo exhibitions at the Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), Participant Inc.
