Exhibit Opening: REPRESENT: POWER IN COLOR

  • Armory Center for the Arts (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
 
Unknown.jpeg

REPRESENT: POWER IN COLOR— an exhibition and dialogue that celebrates ArtCenter’s students and alumni of color and their explorations of self, identity, and visibility through creative work.

Art and design are visual and tactile practices often concerned with presenting our own interpretations of moments, people, places, and communities. In these fields, people of color are too often underrepresented, misrepresented, or rendered invisible in spite of our deep contributions to art, design, craft, and cultural production. Other times, the creative contributions made by people of color are tokenized in such a way that overshadows the work itself. Either way, we can’t extract ourselves from our work: this exhibit aims to give space to expressions of representation that are self-determined and celebratory, critical and exploratory. This exhibit features creatives whose work examines what it looks like to genuinely, respectfully, and fully represent who they are and how they experience the joys and burdens of representing themselves or their membership in a community or collective identity. 

Presented by the Antiracist Classroom and CHROMA, REPRESENT highlights the creative practices of Latinx, Asian, Black, and Indigenous artists and cultivates a space that prioritizes our experiences, representations of self, histories, and futures. REPRESENT manifests a space we urgently want to see in our studios, our classes, and the creative field more broadly. It is an action, an invitation to engage, and a celebration of what we have already collectively achieved.

Graduate Art Seminar: Anthony Huberman in conversation with Shahryar Nashat

 
Unknown.png

In his sculptures, photographs, and films, the work of Swiss artist Shahryar Nashat often addresses the representation of the body and the conventions of mediation and presentation. Nashat finds great pleasure in details, and his works—with their near-obsessive methods of framing and cropping—draw the viewer into a world of clandestine forms, artful gestures, and posturing. His work has been exhibited widely, including the Kunsthalle Basel (2017); Rubell Family Collection, Miami (2017); Portikus, Frankfurt (2016); Schinkel Pavilion, Berlin (2016); Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2016); 356 Mission Road, Los Angeles (2015); and Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Cambridge (2015). He took part in the 20th Sydney Biennale (2016); La Biennale de Montréal (2016); the 8th Berlin Biennale (2014); and the 54th Venice Biennial (2011). Nashat is represented by David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles, and Rodeo Gallery, London. He is currently based in Los Angeles.

Congratulations to ArtCenter students on the opening of their group exhibition, Hyphenated American.

Hyphenated American is an exploration of our ethnic identity and cultural duality, or the lack of one. It is about adapting to a new culture while holding onto our roots. It embraces a way to thrive and create while living in a space that is constantly shifting and intertwining. We are exploring and questioning: who we are, who we are not, and who we become. Our aim is to share our experience.

Come out and support Photo student Ash Alexander who will have work included in this show.

The event is centered around people, practices, works of art and design, and spaces that seek to embody or enhance racial equity. We see racial equity as the condition of freedom from racially determined experiences and life outcomes, as derived from an intentional and meticulous dismantling of white supremacist frameworks that undergird the institutions in which we operate.
