Carter Comes to Campus

The Visiting Artist Lecture Series welcomed New York-based artist Carter to the UC Irvine campus the week of May 15th. Carter gave a guest lecture on his work, and lead a three day workshop in graduate studies. He met individually with graduate students with an emphasis on sculpture, painting and photography to discuss their past and current projects and later engaged in group critique. The final day was spent at the Getty Center discussing selections from the video program, California Video. The first comprehensive survey of video art from 1968 to the present, the program featured a day long screening of works by Bruce Yonemoto, Chair of Studio Art.

Carter has come to prominence recently with a varied yet cohesive range of work that suggests Oliver Sacks-like themes of real versus fictional identities, both mental and corporeal. His quasi-figurative landscapes, combining pen and ink with collaged elements, are dominated by rock-like human heads. His videos and

2014-2015 Season Brochure

Welcome to the 50th Anniversary of UC Irvine — and to the Claire Trevor School of the Arts’ 2014-15 season of exciting exhibitions, performances, and special events. Since its founding in 1965, the School of Fine Arts has been a unique and vibrant presence in the community, nationally, and internationally, building from strength to strength across these five decades.
To celebrate our Golden Anniversary, we’re re-introducing some of our most notable founding faculty members: Dr. Robert Cohen, Claire Trevor Professor of Drama (and still a central member of the Drama Department), Dance’s Eugene Loring, Music’s Professor Emeritus H. Colin Slim, and several founding Art Department faculty members and students who are now part of any Who’s Who of Southern California art. Beyond these tributes, this year we’re building on our enormously successful 2013-14 season, in which CTSA was named — from a field of fortyeight nominees — Coast Magazine’s Top Arts Organization in Orange County,

UC Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts mounts a solo exhibition of works by Ed Moses at the UAG

The University Art Galleries (UAG) at UC Irvine’s Claire Trevor School of the Arts will mount a solo exhibition of paintings by Ed Moses, utilizing all three galleries and featuring works from the 1970s to the present. The exhibition entitled Ed Moses: Cross Section will open Saturday, October 11 with a reception open to the public from 2:00pm – 5:00pm and will exhibit through Saturday, December 13, 2014.
“Cross-Section will trace the common thematic thread binding Moses’s prolific and continuous act of exploration.” says co-curator and Director for the University Art Galleries, Juli Carson. “In so doing, the philosophical continuity of the artist’s disparate visual strategies are framed, strategies the artist has repeated and contradicted, as his investigation into the painted form has changed direction or reversed course over the past five decades.”
Cross-Section will be the inaugural exhibition for Claire Trevor School of the Arts in celebration of the school’s 50th

Daniel Joseph Martinez Receives Cisneros Fontanals Achievement Award

Roberts & Tilton congratulates Daniel Joseph Martinez, recipient of the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation's 2017 Achievement Award. The highly coveted award recognizes significant contributions by established artists representing the highest standards of creative excellence. A survey of Martinez's work, including a newly commissioned installation, will open in September 2017 at the CIFO Art Center, Miami.

Throughout his career spanning close to four decades, Daniel Joseph Martinez has engaged in an interrogation of social, political, and cultural mores through artworks that have been described as nonlinear, asymmetrical, multidimensional propositions. Operating fluidly as open source manifestations not bound by any singular category, his works take the form of text, sculpture, photography, painting, installation, robotics, performance, and public interventions to unapologetically question issues of personal and collective identity. Ongoing themes include contamination,
