  • Clay, Body is a solo exhibition from artist Sydney Aubert: Unapologetically fat, crass, and sexual, a ceramics artist who also works in video, and whatever other materials arouse her in the moment. Exhibition will be on view from Monday, April 24 - Friday, April 28 at the Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art and Design. 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.

Campus Access and Trespass Policy

Otis College of Art and Design is an independent college, and its facilities, buildings, properties, and grounds (hereafter “campus”) are private property. Access to the Otis College campus, including the Goldsmith Campus and all off-site locations, is permitted only with Otis College’s consent, which may be withdrawn at any time for any reason.

For the purposes of this policy, individuals who are given a Trespass Notice are prohibited from entering the Otis College campus. Individuals who fail to comply with the Trespass Notice will be arrested and charged with trespassing, as per California Penal Code 602.
Otis Visitors
Upon request, visitors to campus are required to provide an officially recognized form of photo identification to the Security Guard and to state the purpose of the visit. Visitors who fail to comply with the Security Guard’s request will be required to leave campus immediately. A Trespass Notice will be issued to any visitor who refuses to leave campus when requested to do so by the Security Guard or who commits a crime, is involved in any type of criminal activity, and/or violates College policy. Visitors who are minors (under the age of 18) are not permitted on campus unless engaged in appropriate activities as prospective students or accompanied by an adult.
Otis Community Members
Upon request, Otis community members are required to provide an Otis College I.D. or other officially recognized form of photo identification to the Security Guard. Otis community members who fail to comply with the Security Guard’s request will be required to leave campus if the Security Guard (1) is able to document a health and/or safety risk that requires such an action and (2) has received approval from the Chief Facilities and Operations Officer, Dean of Student Affairs, Provost, Vice Presidents, or President. A Trespass Notice may be issued to Otis community members only with prior written approval.
Order of Exclusion
Students may be excluded from campus by order of the Dean of Student Affairs; employees may be excluded from campus by order of the Director of Human Resources. Individuals who are under an order of exclusion are prohibited from entering the Otis College campus or participating in Otis College activities on or off campus. Individuals who fail to comply with an order of exclusion will be given a Trespass Notice.
 
To execute an order of exclusion, the Dean of Student Affairs or Director of Human Resources notifies the Chief Facilities and Operations Officer, who in turn notifies the Security Guard. The Security Guard administers and supervises the order of exclusion until such time as the student or employee returns to good standing in the College community, as determined by the Dean of Student Affairs in the case of students and the Director of Human Resources in the case of employees. Persons under an order of exclusion may visit campus for brief periods only by written permission of the Chief Facilities and Operations Officer, the Dean of Student Affairs (for students), or the Director of Human Resources (for employees).
 
A Trespass Notice will be issued to any person under an order of exclusion who returns to campus without written permission. For the purposes of this policy, the Dean of Student Affairs and the Director of Human Resources may appoint a designee to act on their behalf.
Rescinding a Trespass Notice
Only the Chief Facilities and Operations Officer, the Vice President for Administrative and Financial Services, or the President may rescind a Trespass Notice.
