Simon Leung

leungss@uci.edu

Simon Leung’s foremost concern as an artist is how “the ethical,” broadly defined, can be thought and traced. His projects, in various media, include a rethinking of AIDS and otherness using the figures of the pinprick and the glory hole; meditations on “the residual space of the American/Vietnam War” (comprising works on the squatting body as counter-architecture, military desertion as askesis, and surfing); a video essay on the site/non-site dialectic instigated by Robert Smithson’s reception of Edgar Allan Poe (with a little help from Yvonne Rainer); a reconsideration of Marcel Duchamp’s oeuvre as an discourse in ethics (as seen through Étant donnés); and “squatting projects” in various cities (Berlin, New York, Chicago, Vienna, Guangzhou, Hong Kong), where the squatting body, as a heuristic

Monica Majoli

mmajoli@uci.edu

Majoli’s practice examines the relationship between physicality and consciousness, as expressed through the documentary sexual image. Themes of intersubjectivity and temporality have informed numerous bodies of her work, together with decisive shifts in materiality. She has had solo exhibitions in New York at Gagosian Gallery (2006) and Feature, Inc. (1998), and at Air de Paris, France (1995, 2007 and 2010). Highlights from her exhibition record include Compass in Hand: Selections from The Judith Rothschild Foundation Contemporary Drawing Collection, the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2009); Everywhere: Sexual Diversity Policies in Art, Centro Galego de Arte Contemporanea; Spain (2009); Eden's Edge: 15 L.A. Artists, the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2007); Into Me/Out of Me, P.S. 1 Contemporary Art

Martha Gever

Martha Gever’s most recent public project was an exhibition of on-line video, entitled Video Dada, at UCI’s University Art Gallery (2010). Although the show dealt with the tremendous expansion of video and the place of art within this relatively new cultural arena, it also continued Gever’s longstanding involvement with independent and experimental video, dating back to the Portapak and reel-to-reel tape. She has also maintained an interest in video’s industrial counterpart, television. Her most recent critical writings deal with relationships between art and popular culture — “Like TV: On Barbara Kruger’s Twelve” (2007) — as well as cultural and political implications of various televisual phenomena — “The Spectacle of Crime, Digitized: C.S.I.
