DESCRIPTION

The Oliver Art Center and California College of the Arts’ graduate program in Curatorial Practice are pleased to present ‘A Universe We Can Believe In’, an exhibition exploring the limits of science fiction through contemporary art.

Featuring Artworks from:
Aly Su Borst, Georgia Carbone, Torreya Cummings, Adam Green, David Huffman, Joe Mckay, Richard Misrach, Trevor Paglen, George Pfau, Suzy Poling, Gareth Spor, Kara Tanaka, and Weston Teruya.

The landscape of science fiction plays a major role in popular culture. Through photography, painting, installation, performance, and assemblage, 12 contemporary artists show how the idea of the strange help us all to define the familiar. ‘A Universe We Can Believe In’ is a reminder that sometimes the alien is closer to home than we might think.

The Tecoah Bruce Gallery at the Oliver Arts Center is located on the Oakland Campus of the California College of the Arts, 5212 Broadway, Oakland, CA. Map and Directions available at http://www.cca.edu/about/directions
