On view by appointment only, please contact the artist at sydney.aubert@gmail.com Reception: Thursday, April 27 | 6pm-9pm Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art and Design

  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.

Calendar

Freeway Studies is a multi-year, contemporary art-focused curatorial project organized by Meg Linton, Director of Galleries and Exhibitions, with the assistance of Jeseca Dawson, 2012-2014 Curatorial Fellow, at the Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art and Design.
 

Inside the Quad features work by 31 contemporary artists whose studios are located inside the border defined by the following freeways: I-405, I-110, I-10 and I-105. The impetus for this curatorial endeavor continues to be an effort to survey, one studio at a time, the neighborhoods and networks of artists working in Los Angeles. This dérive breaks out of existing curatorial preconceptions and knowledge to expand the analog network between curator, artist, and institution. Geographic parameters, along with word-of-mouth referrals, are used to ping-pong from studio to studio, shifting the confines of the existing paradigm. Documentation of every studio visit can be seen on the Freeway Studies Blog.
