GRADUATE STUDENT ALLYSON UNZICKER CURATES SHOW AT VINCENT PRICE ART MUSEUM

Corporeal Impulse
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 8, 2014 | 4 PM - 6 PM
Exhibition Dates: January 21, 2014 - April 12, 2014
Vincent Price Art Museum

Corporeal Impulse is a group exhibition featuring five West Coast artists who work primarily in clay including Julia Haft-Candell, Matt Merkel Hess, Jeffry Mitchell, Kathleen Ryan and Bari Ziperstein.

The works explore ceramics sculpturally, challenging the inherent limitations of clay whilst critically engaging with its decorative history. From simplistic to complex forms, Corporeal Impulse investigates the body in clay through various contexts such as gender, identity, biological systems, and

From the Press Release

Arena 1 Gallery is pleased to present GHOSTS - a group exhibition, curated by Michael EB Detto and Sayon Syprasoeuth, which gathers new work from six artists exploring the aftermath of the catastrophe, the genocide, or the war.  How should we treat the Ghosts each of these leaves behind – in real life, as metaphor, as a tool?

The very own substantiality each one thing in itself exhibits, its innate properties, its relation to subject, time space, and language are altogether qualities which suddenly start to dissipate when we have to deal with ghosts. It is hard even to

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 15, 2014 | 7 PM - 10 PM
Exhibition Dates: February 15, 2014 - March 15, 2014

Space 4 Art San Diego is pleased to present At the End of the Day curated by Andrew Printer. At the End of the Day consists of two new bodies of work by Andrew Printer that sit at the intersection of domestic life and queer lifestyle, camp and documentary, the tragic and the comic.

The Sleepers series of photographs places numerous men onto the proverbial conjugal bed while stripping them of any trace of sexuality. Also presented are conventional portraits disrupted by an uncertain, often messy photogram effect that smudges identity, as it celebrates aberration.

ABOUT ANDREW PRINTER
Andrew Printer is an interdisciplinary artist whose work is often tied to the experience and the representation of a particular generation of gay men: pre AIDS, post
