REDCAT: Rhode Island-based artist Tony Cokes’ Retro (Pop, Terror, Critique) is an ambitious new multichannel video installation that surveys the past 15 years of his work. Since the mid-1980s, Cokes has employed the medium of video to borrow and sample materials from high and low culture and reveal how race, gender and class are perceived through “representational regimes of image and sound.” Read more
Live performance all week long. Thursday night reception 8-10 pm.
THEATER: This installation by Leah Olbrich (MFA3 Puppetry) seeks transformation. Rather than using the gallery space to display artwork, the artwork IS the space. The space will undergo several reversals, beginning as a white room that is covered in black paper then turned white again over a series of creative tasks (involving the destruction of the black paper) set about by chance.
CalArts, Tatum Lounge

FILM/VIDEO: Erika Vogt will show and discuss recent works.
“Vogt works in video, sculpture, and drawing to create a floating iconography that is as much about entering a physical plane as an imaginary one. This quality of moving and mutable signs forms the basis of her conceptually complex work. Vogt strives to create an environment in which the viewer is able to move freely, creating an experience predicated upon associations, layers, and contingencies.” -Simone Subal Gallery

“A lone wayfarer travels through an abandoned set of landscapes and employs magic walking sticks and rusted devices and tools to assist her in her travels. An accumulation of the same painted sticks and instruments from the video makes its way into exhibition space. The objects are affixed with stiffened handles for visitors to pick up and engage as they navigate their own viewing experience.” –Aram Moshayedi, Art Forum
