CCA Graduate Shows!

CCA is having its Spring graduating class shows all this month with openings this week and next. Be sure to check out:

God Only Knows Who the Audience Is: Performance, Video, and Television Through the Lens of La Mamelle / ART COM is produced by the graduating class of theGraduate Program in Curatorial Practice. This exhibition investigates the notion of “performing” as a medium and a site of mediation. It focuses on works from the 1970s and 1980s, a time when emerging technologies such as the Portapak and cable television were transforming the way that artists documented, shared, and, ultimately, performed their work.  At the Wattis Institute SF Campus:

(Odds Are) 13:1

Hosted by the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts
May 3–7, 2011

Public reception: Tuesday, May 3, 6-8 p.m.

Thirteen artists and one curator were assigned to put together an exhibition in less than a month. The result is an exhibition in a pop-up space: a one-bedroom apartment used intermittently as temporary housing for visiting artists to the Wattis. In his essay “The ghosts in the machine,” the renowned architect Alexander Gorlin makes a case for Le Corbusier as a surrealist architect: “Le Corbusier and the Surrealists alike sought to jolt man’s perception of the world through the deliberate reversal of the expected, and the juxtaposition of the banal with the extraordinary.” (Odds Are) 13:1 applies this idea to a group exhibition.
