  • 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.


Fine Arts Faculty Phil Chang in LA Times

During the summer, the Los Angeles Times reviewed “Soft Target,” a show at M+B co-curated by fine arts faculty member Phil Chang: 
In photography, targets are high-contrast printed patterns or color bars that help achieve the hallmarks of a “successful” image: sharp focus and accurate color. In their group exhibition “Soft Target” at M+B, curators Phil Chang and Matthew Porter (both also artists who make photographs) set out to trouble such certainties. More...
Critic Charlotte Cotton also recently profiled the artist in IMA Magazine
Chang works slowly and with the direction and determination that comes from having well formed ideas already in place. With the intellectual ground work already set, his practice is focused on prompting the viewer to pay attention to the contemporary character of photography. Through such a thoughtful practice, he creates what will likely become some of the most enduring experiences of photographic thinking of this point in time. More...
This month, Chang is exhibiting his work in two group shows. “Aggregate Exposure” at George Lawson Gallery will be closing on November 8 in San Francisco. Curated by Jennah Ward, “Aggregate Exposure” places an emphasis on looking at the processes through which the work is made, rather than what is represented in the photographic image.
On November 14, “Me and Benjamin,” featuring work by Chang and curated by Benjamin Trigano, will open at the
 Galerie Xippas in Paris. The exhibit
 will run until January 10, 2015.
