"The Whole World Is Watching"
The Glendale College Art Gallery welcomes Irene Tsatsos as guest
curator for its next exhibition and 2008-9 season opener "The
Whole World Is Watching", which begins with a reception from 4-
7PM on September 20th and runs until November 8, 2008, just after
"The Whole World Is Watching" takes the form of historical echo,
linking the tumultuous chronicle of the Democratic National
Convention and presidential election of 1968 with the present day
as well as with artworks in the exhibition. A run of 5,000
pamphlets commemorating specific events of 1968 will be available
for free in the gallery to complement works in the show.
From 1997 until 2005, Irene Tsatsos was the Executive Director
of Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) where she mounted
nearly fifty exhibitions, including the much-heralded
retrospective of performance artist Yvonne Rainer and Chris
Burden's project Small Skyscraper. Prior to taking the
leadership of LACE, Tsatsos worked at the Whitney Museum of
American Art as the exhibition coordinator of the 1997 Biennial
and held leadership positions at the Arts Club of Chicago and
N.A.M.E. gallery, Chicago. Currently, Tsatsos is an arts
consultant and independent curator based in Los Angeles, whose
practice provides expertise on exhibitions, educational
programs, publications, marketing, and not-for-profit
institutional development. She serves as the Los Angeles
Director of Artist Pension Trust, which is a partial sponsor of
this exhibition, and is writing and editing a publication for
California Community Foundation documenting its recent arts
grantmaking, in addition to other projects.
