    This week from 5:00 - 6:00 pm is The Girls Room with DJ Lonesome (Jaclyn Arellano), DJ Filth (Mady Preece), DJ Duchamp’s Urinal (Carly Goldstein). In this political climate, it is finally time to take charge of our own bodies and image. No more housewife norms to determine what a woman should look like. Join us in conversation with the tools of music and noise to express what it means to be a woman. We will challenge the definitions and misconceptions about masculinity and femininity, creating a space where women can feel free to ask questions and get answers from other women.

    A two-person exhibition of recent large-scale video installations from Los Angeles-based artists Jesse Fleming and Pat O’Neill. Each artist raises questions in his work about the self in relation to others, collective norms, and the built environment.

The Otis Graduate Fine Arts Visiting Artist Lecture Series is pleased to host its second curatorial panel. 

This time, the curators invited will provide a provocative and revealing presentation and discussion around their practices within the framework of a pedagogical institution. The particular relationship to an institution and the manner in which one might think of that practice of organizing an exhibition, especially one attached to students and artist-professors, is a fruitful area to explore. 

In a time where students are thinking about not only producing objects and ideas as they might pertain to the context of art production itself, but are addressing their relationship to the world and various histories of that world, each of the curators invited has performed within their own practice in a unique fashion that responds to these conditions.

Rhea Anastas and Sohrab Mohebbi will present a recent curatorial project for twenty minutes, followed by directed questions and an open discussion.

 

Rhea Anastas is an art historian, critic, curator, and Associate Professor in the Art Department at the University of California, Irvine.
