“Can Touch This!” - One Day Sculpture Exhibit
Renowned artist and visiting San Francisco State University art professor, Kal Spelletich, presents his Advanced Sculpture students in a one-day exhibit of cutting-edge artworks. More than 40 sculptures will be on display in a variety of mediums, including kinetic, digital, neon, interactive, installation and, performance art. The sculptures on display explore the boundaries of art, society, technology, the human condition, and political protest. As the title suggests, audience interactivity is encouraged.
The exhibit is on May 10, 2012 from 2 pm to 5 pm at The Fine Arts Building at San Francisco State University, 1600 Holloway Ave, San Francisco. Entertainment includes a DJ, a live acoustic set by The Jaunting Martyrs and, performance art by Steven Simpson. Refreshments will be provided.
SFSU art faculty includes nationally prominent artists and the department is recognized for excellence in both teaching and expanding the frontiers of art. Kal Spelletich, teaching this semester's advanced sculpture courses, encourages his students to be creative and characterizes his own work with the statement "I build machines, robots and installations for my audience to operate. This interactive work is inspired by political activism, volunteerism and getting people involved in life. The collaboration with the audience completes the work. My collaborators are the audience. The work does not exist without them."
