> DESCRIPTION

The New World 
1/22/13 - 3/16/13
Reception: 1/22, 6-8pm

The New World is an exhibition that considers changing social, political and economic relations in the world from the perspective of Southern California-trained artists.   The New World features artists who attended art school in Southern California, but whose outlook, explicitly or implicitly, engages with the changing world as emerging markets grow in economic and cultural prominence.  Their work explores the conflicting feelings of fear and optimism elicited by a globalized world and art market, as well as the excitement, fascination, experimentation, uncertainty and displacement that accompanies change.

The New World was curated by Roman Stollenwerk and will include work by: Isabel Avila, Chris Barnard, Cathy Breslaw, Hugo Crosthwaite, Asad Faulwell, Chuck Feesago, galería perdida, Kaguya, Bianca Kolonusz-Partee, Elleni Sclavenitis, and Joe Suzuki.

In the Project Space:
Never Underestimate a Monochrome
2/2/2013 - 3/2/2013

Meant to activate the poetic, political and performative registers of the monochrome, Never Underestimate a Monochrome (2012) is a conceptual project conceived and organized by Mariángeles Soto-Díaz in a collaborative partnership with the University of Iowa Museum of Art. Artists from different parts of the world interpreted instructions written by Soto-Díaz, and provided documentation of their monochrome performance for a digital archival space, bringing the textual, embodied and mediated aspects of the monochrome into dialogue. The collective event occurred over the summer of 2012 across the globe, defying the logic of the event as necessarily bound to a singular physical and temporal space. 

Exhibitions and events are free and open to the public. Park in the North Parking Lot; permits can be purchased at machines for $2.
