Contemporary Arts Center Grand Opening Celebration

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Grand Opening: Wednesday, November 9, 2011, 5:30 PM
The campus and the community are invited to attend.

The highlight of 2011 will be the inauguration of the Claire Trevor School of the Art's New Media Arts Building. The five-story, 59,000-square-foot building will provide facilities for new types of technology-driven instruction, research, and performance space.  Included in the building are digital arts instruction labs, motion capture studio, visual design studio, rehearsal halls, art gallery, mixed-media performance space, sound design studio lab and offices. While all four departments in the School will benefit from new facilities in the building, of particular interest to Studio Art are the 22 new MFA studio spaces that open onto generous outdoor balcony spaces on the top floor, the Colloquium Room (which will serve as a forum for visiting artist talks and other such events), the Mixed- Media Performance Space (a large, highly

A Piano Played by Five Pianists at Once (First Attempt): A Solo Project by Koki Tanaka (Opening Reception)

Koki Tanaka's A Piano Played by Five Pianists at Once (First Attempt), continues Room Gallery's Emerging Artist Series. Tanaka's interdisciplinary art practice - combining painting, video, photography and sculpture - captures the ordinary, everyday event or object in its most poetic transformation.  The artist's task of discovery entails carefully documenting what he has accidentally encountered - things we ordinarily overlook.  Along the way, Tanaka gives himself over to a place in the legacy of Andre Breton's surrealist encounters, David Hammon's fluxus performances, Bruce Nauman's paradoxical propositions and Douglas Hueblers durational pieces.  Specifically, Tanaka's art derives from an action that he instigates in a given site: selling old palm fronds as a vendor in local flea market; showing sculptures to a friend's dog; or orchestrating a haircut simultaneously performed by a team of hairdressers.  Derived in post-recession Japan - and continued in the
