Fine Arts Professor Annetta Kapon’s Proxy Gallery in a Box

Over the decades, it seems that the art world has found ever more inventive places to stage shows. In the 1950s, L.A. curator Walter Hopps staged an exhibition on the Santa Monica Pier. In the early '90s, Swiss curator Hans Ulrich Obrist held a show in his northeast Switzerland kitchen. Italian prankster-artist Maurizio Cattelan in the early 2000s, along with curators Massimiliano Gioni and Ali Subotnick (the latter of whom now works at the Hammer Museum), opened the Wrong Gallery, a New York space that consisted of just a few square feet behind a permanently locked glass door.

Visiting Artist Lecture: Eileen Cowin

 
Eileen Cowin is an artist who sees living as a means to break boundaries, and psychology as a way to confront us with strange attitudes or to implicate us in seemingly self-imposed spatial confinements. –Art Papers April 2007 by Eve Wood

INFORMATION/TIPS TO SHARE WITH FUTURE STUDENTS?
Do it all! There is so much to learn and explore. Take advantage of every course you take. I regret not taking more classes
but I ended up taking 18 units almost every semester. It is ok to be different, because that is what sets you apart as an artist.

INTERESTING THINGS YOU DID OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL?
I mostly did a lot of bike riding. I did some epic rides on a special bike that I built for exploring the local fire roads and mountain trails. I did some longer rides including many centuries, and one from L.A. to San Diego. My favorite thing was organizing parties and art shows with Centaur, my art collective.
