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.

Live performance all week long. Thursday night reception 8-10 pm.

CalArts, C113

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.

'The Commons' Lecture Series with Gala Porras-Kim

October 18, 2012
Thursday, October 18, 2012 - 4:00pm

CalArts, Tatum Lounge

CRITICAL STUDIES: Please join us for the second session of "The Commons" Lecture Series with Gala Porras-Kim.

"The Commons" Lecture Series is a yearlong series of talks, debates, and open discussions with prominent thinkers and artists curated and organized by students of the MA in Aesthetics and Politics, CalArts School of Critical Studies.

Porras-Kim will be presenting her work and research. Her most recent project includes notes that led to the production of the LP Whistling and Language Transfiguration, which uses the tonal qualities of the Zapotec language to translate stories of the Tlacolula Valley in Oaxaca into its whistled form. The artist will discuss objects resulting from her research into the Zapotec culture and politics, its tonal language, and the variations of dialects contained within the region, as well as whistling used as the hidden transcript and a strategy of dissent.

About the artist
Gala Porras-Kim was born in Bogotá, Colombia and lives and works in Los Angeles. She received her BA from UCLA (2007), MFA from the California Institute of the Arts (2009), and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2010). Her work has been included in exhibitions at Commonwealth and Council, Los Angeles, CA; La Central, Bogotá, Colombia; FOXRIVER, Singapore, Singapore; Dobaebacsa HQ, Seoul, Korea, and most recently at 18th Street Art Center, Santa Monica, CA.

Paul Brach Lecture Series: Dino Dinco - PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP

October 18, 2012
Thursday, October 18, 2012 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm


ART: Dino Dinco is an independent curator, filmmaker, theater director and multidisciplinary artist. Dinco recently completed a year long residency at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) as Performance Art Curator (2011 - 2012). He also curated two concurrent annual fundraising events at LACE, GUTTED 2010 AND 2011, in which he focused on how multiple generations of performance artists speak from, about and to the body.

For this series, Dinco will lead an immersive, instructional, hands on workshop. Students will perform an array of actions and "exercises" to think about the intent of constructing performance as well as awareness of the image when making performance. Between exercises, there will be an open dialogue and critique about the experience. Along the way, Dinco also talk about his own experiences with making and curating performance and the modalities of different artists.
