  • York Chang (b. 1973, St. Louis, MO) is an interdisciplinary artist who uses forensic and archival information systems as supports for poetic gestures and alternate histories, in order to interrogate the aesthetic conventions of authority which often serve to blur the line between fiction and reality. He earned both his BFA (1996) and Juris Doctorate (2001) from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). York Chang lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, and is represented by Greene Exhibitions.

  • Oliver Kellhammer is an independent artist, writer and researcher, who seeks, through his botanical interventions and social art practice, to demonstrate nature’s surprising ability to recover from damage. His recent work has focused on the psychosocial effects of climate change, cleaning up contaminated soils, reintroducing prehistoric trees to landscape damaged by industrial logging and cataloging the ecology of brownfield ecologies. He currently works as a lecturer in sustainable systems at Parsons in New York City.
     
  • In this performance I try to summarize In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

Continuing Education Course

EARLYBIRD ENDS: Jan 11, 2016 00:00:00


Portfolio Preparation: Photography


A strong portfolio is essential for students planning to pursue a career in photography. During this course, students create 10-20 photographs as they learn how to develop a professional fine art photographic portfolio. Working one-on-one with the instructor, students develop the skills needed to create and edit a portfolio and learn to write and speak clearly about his or her work. An important part of the college application process, students work on their portfolios and receive counseling on artwork presentation. Course also covers preparation for group and solo shows and how to apply for artist opportunities.

Prerequisite: Photography experience preferred, but not required

First class materials: Camera, pen and paper or laptop for taking notes, and 3-5 pieces of previous photography artwork. For beginning students, bring 3-5 examples of photography you admire.

IMPORTANT:
• All students attending courses on the Goldsmith Campus must check in with Continuing Education staff in the lobby of the Ahmanson Building.
• All Portfolio Preparation students are required to submit a completed Pre-College Programs Emergency Contact Information Form, Policies and Procedures Acknowledgement of Receipt, and Photo/Video Release Form prior to admittance into the classroom.
