  • 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.


Student Access to Facilities

Student Access to Facilities—Goldsmith Campus

In order to meet program needs and accommodate work schedules, degree students may access the Goldsmith Campus facilities 24 hours a day, commencing with the first day of classes and ending on the last scheduled day of class/critique, except during holiday periods.

Facilities access is subject to the guidelines and limitations below. Any person who fails to comply with these policies will forfeit the right to 24-hour access and will not be permitted on campus from 1:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. Any student intending to access campus after 1:00 a.m. must complete the sign-in procedure at the security desk on the first floor lobby of Ahmanson Hall prior to 1:00 a.m. Students arriving on campus after 1:00a.m. will be turned away. 

To sign in, students must present the security guard with the following: (a) a valid Otis ID card, (b) first and last names,(c) anticipated work location(s), and (d) signature in the sign-in book. Once the sign-in procedure has been completed, students are permitted to move around the campus. For security purposes, however, students are required to present a valid Otis ID card upon re-entering the Ahmanson and Galef buildings. A student’s sign-in is valid only on the date on which it occurs. Students are encouraged to park on the lower levels of the parking garage after hours. The entrance gate to the parking garage is closed at 1:00 a.m., regardless of a student’s sign-in status. 

Although students may exit the parking garage at any time, students are not permitted to enter or reenter the parking garage between 1:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. The wood shop and the metal shop are unavailable to students outside the hours posted for each shop. For safety reasons, students are not allowed to use personal power tools outside the shop areas. In the event of an emergency, the red phones located on each floor provide direct access to the security guard and may also be used to call 911.

Fashion Design, located in the California Market Center, is open Monday– Friday 7:00 a.m.–12:00 a.m., Saturday 9:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m., and Sunday 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. The Graduate Fine Arts (Culver City) and Graduate Public Practice (Santa Monica) studios are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays and the summer months.
