CULT OF THE RUIN: STRATEGIES OF ACCUMULATION

Opening Reception Thursday, January 6, 6-9 pm | UAG & ROOM
January 6 - February 5, 2011

Cult of the Ruin: Strategies of Accumulation features 12 emerging artists from the U.S. and Europe working in video, performance, sculpture, installation, watercolor and food. What binds these disparate projects is the persistence of appropriation, re-enactment, material accretion – as strategies – to address the perceived gap between records of the past and our present experiences.  Over 20 years have passed since critic Craig Owens posited this gap as a site for allegory.  In doing so, Owens defined a branch of postmodern art practice by the artist’s allegorical “impulse” to return to outmoded forms and systems – or ruins – to reinvigorate their contemporary value.  Taken together, the works in this exhibition evince contemporary deviations from his original theory.  And yet, their re-making of Owens’ allegorical impulse keeps the original theory alive.

Advanced Collaboration 2010 image

The cultural explosion of video has created new career opportunities for students, and has hastened a need for much more in-depth, systematic study of video. Therefore we have greatly revised and expanded our curriculum. 


Our new production training provides the equipment and time necessary for students to develop a hands-on understanding of the tools, terminology and workflow of a production crew. Pre-Production & Post-Production courses further enhance organizational and technical skills. History courses focus on the study of important experimental film and video art works that are understood as critical to the development of video making.  A range of

Swedish Prize for Recent Grad

Jenny Yurshansky (Studio Art M.F.A., 2010) has been awarded a prize by the Bonnier Foundation of Sweden, the first time in the 25 years since the prize was first awarded that it has gone to a non-Swede. Four of the five pieces that she submitted for this prize were works from her graduate thesis exhibition at the University Gallery, UCI, featuring a mix of sculpture, installations, and site-specific interventions. The foundation is adding Yurshansky's work "A Hermetic Dilemma" (pictured above) to its collection and is giving her a special exhibition at the Bonnierskonsthall in Stockholm that opens this month.
