Chung-Ang University Invited Colleges & Universities Across the Globe to Collaborate on Experimental Education Model


Faculty from Chung-Ang University in Seoul, South Korea, invited colleges and universities across the globe to choose faculty-student teams to collaborate in producing an artwork as an experimental education model.


Participating schools are as follows:

The Art Center College of Design, Pasadena

Baptist University, HKBU, Hong Kong

Chung-Ang University, Seoul

Parsons, NY

Zurich University of the Arts, Zurich



Professor Ken Marchionno and Brett Childs from the Photography and Imaging Department were chosen from ACCD. Over the summer/fall break, they worked together to produce a photography and video installation focused on attacks on privacy in contemporary culture. The piece, Mary Bradbury, is ostensibly a highly conceptualized fashion shoot about surveillance, but is heavily layered with criticality, unearthing issues of power, class, race, and gender, and confronts audience complicity in looking.


(Both images above are from the project.)


The projects culminate in an exhibition titled Make, and seminar in Seoul, SK, this October. Brett Childs will attend the seminar and Professor Marchionno will video chat from the US.


Essays about the experiment and images from the projects will be gathered in an anthology to be published later this year.

Vintage Cosmetics Maven Gabriela Hernandez (BFA 89 PHOT) Knows Her Makeup History

The Bésame Cosmetics founder walks us through the changing face of beauty from the 1890s to the 1990s

By Chris Nichols -August 16, 2019

When she was a little girl in Buenos Aires, the beauty rituals of Gabriela Hernandez’s older relatives fascinated her. The Burbank-based artist spent years studying vintage cosmetics and after graduating from ArtCenter College of Design, she began designing makeup packaging. Digging deeper into the history, she wrote the book Classic Beauty: The History of Makeup, and in 2004 she created her version of a 1920s lipstick and started her company Bésame Cosmetics. Today the company manufactures mascara, lipstick, and powders; offers period beauty classes; and runs a boutique where patrons, including makeup designers on period films and TV shows, can immerse themselves in the charms of earlier generations. The ingredients, design, and packaging are drawn from a century of techniques and products. Hernandez shares with us the evolution of painting faces.




The Lucie Foundation is pleased to announce the Open Call for photographers to submit their images to be exhibited at the House of Lucie gallery in Downtown Los Angeles. All levels of photographers are welcome to submit their work to be part of this exhibition.


Recipients of the 2019 Fall Group Show will have their work featured in an exhibition at House of Lucie Los Angeles the month of October 2019 and their work promoted throughout our media channels and online.

ArtCenter Alum Josh Schaedel Featured in Aperture's 2019 Summer Open


Congratulations to ArtCenter Alum Josh Schaedel (Photo & Imaging 2014) for being featured in Aperture’s 2019 Summer Open: Delirious Cities. The show is currently on view in the Aperture Gallery in New York City until August 29th.

The city is an ever-changing landscape, a place of contested freedom, a laboratory of identity, a supermarket of desires. When the architect Rem Koolhaas first published his 1978 manifesto, Delirious New York, he wrote of density and ecstasy, of the epic visions of Manhattan skyscrapers and the otherworldliness of capitalist congestion. Through their photographs, videos, and lens-based installations, the twenty-three artists selected for the 2019 Aperture Summer Open propel Koolhaas’s curiosity into the present, defining the contours of metropolitan life in the twenty-first century—from the parks of Washington Heights to the bustling blocks of Luanda, Angola. They question the role of surveillance in Brussels, portray the opulent voguing scene in Amsterdam, saunter along the sidewalks of Istanbul, confront the specter of gun violence in Miami, and chronicle the dreams of Mumbai. Some apply bold colors to archival images, while others work beyond the city’s outskirts, in imaginative studios or mysterious environments. Together, they offer urgent statements about how images are shaping the contemporary city as an endless project, a delirious machine for living.
