January 8 – April 26, 2014.. Opening Reception: Jan 8, Wed, 6-8pm.. Berkeley Central Arts Passage.. 2055 Center Street, Berkeley, CA.. M-S 9-6, Su 10-5.. Eric Larson, Ebb and Flow, Acrylic on panel, 36 x 72 inches, 2013.. Kala Art Institute is pleased to announce, Express an Interest in Listening – the latest off-site exhibition at Berkeley Central Arts Passage.. Join us for the Opening Reception on Wednesday, January 8, 6-8pm.. Join us as 2014 kicks-off Kala Art Institute’s 40th Anniversary Year.. Express an Interest in Listening presents the work of five artists – Paper Buck, Brian Caraway, Rema Ghuloum, Eric Larson, and Linda Simmel.. Utilizing the imperative command, the title cites poet CA Conrad.. Conrad’s recent book, A Beautiful Marsupial Afternoon, is a collection of somatic exercises and partnered poems.. “There’s the word ‘somatic,’ and that’s Greek and that means the tissue and the body and the cavities and.. nervous system,” says Conrad.. “Then ‘soma,’ which lives inside that word, is the divine.. I don’t think it’s a mistake that it lives inside of it.. ”.. Akin to Conrad’s titular directive, the artworks in this exhibition converge in the representation of somatic experience.. Paper Buck’s new black and white photo-based works straddle legibility utilizing repeating and shifting imagery and mixed media.. Brian Caraway’s aggressively patterned and colorful panels invite an extended hang-time by way of optics and humorous titles.. Paintings by Rema Ghuloum could be records of a Calisthenics-secretary bent on recording intimate experiences of looking in terms of color and form.. Eric Larson presents collages and screenprinted panels as two views into his practice of marking time and occupying space within a picture plane.. Linda Simmel has recently identified “longing” to be central to her current work.. Her oceanscapes, over-size works on paper, are amalgamated as near and simultaneously just out of reach.. Express an Interest in Listening marks year-two in Kala’s off-site exhibition series featuring artworks from Berkeley-based artists and the Kala community.. Working together in the vibrant downtown Berkeley Arts District, Berkeley Central Arts Passage and Kala Art Institute are forging new connections between artists and audience..

Join us for a night of space and video with 2013-2014 fellowship artists Amy Ho and Ben Bigelow.. Kala’s Fellowship Program includes an annual series of public programs presented by current Fellows during their studio residencies.. This talk kicks off our 2014 series.. It is free of charge and open to the public.. The Space We Inhabit will delve into the topic of space and our experience of it.. Space represents the most immediate way in which we interact with our environment and has been a subject of interest in many fields of research.. We will take a look at how various thinkers and areas of study have dealt with space and how our understanding of space relates to our experience of it.. I will also discuss my own interest in space as a subject for art.. Ben Bigelow presents two of his favorite videos: End of Code by James Duesing and Creative Ideas for Every Season by Brian Bress.. Much is at stake in these works.. Will a homosexual cyborg rabbit be able to hijack the city s traffic light system? Can Agnes Martin safely pilot a cardboard sedan through a sea of collage, whilst musing about the creative process? Please, do come find out.. The answers are absurd, sometimes tragic, and 100% gorgeous.. Amy M.. Ho builds video and spatial installations that bring attention to our existence as both physical and psychological beings.. She received her undergraduate degree in Art Practice from UC Berkeley and her MFA from Mills College.. Amy was selected for the ProArts Gallery 2 2 Solos series in 2012, and is a recipient of a San Francisco Arts Commission Individual Artists Grant for 2013.. Amy will be doing residencies at Kala Art Institute and Studio Kura in 2014.. She currently works and lives in the Bay Area and is represented by Chandra Cerrito Contemporary..

He was featured in two surveys of current MFA students in Los Angeles in “Superpositions New Wight Biennial 2012,” and in San Francisco in “MFA NOW” at Root Division Gallery.. He was an artist in residence at the Children s Museum of Pittsburgh, ARCE Artist Residency, WI, and The Wassaic Project, NY.. He has participated in exhibitions and screenings nationally and internationally in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City and Berlin.. He lives and works in Oakland, CA..

Hours: Tuesday-Friday, noon-5:00p.. m.. Saturday, noon-4:30 p.. Other times by appointment.. Kala Art Institute is pleased to announce our first Artist Project Space resident in 2014: fellowship artist Amy Ho.. Over the course of my month at the Artist Project Space, I plan to experiment with altering the room through projection.. Instead of working steadily on one final piece, I hope to continually transform the space during my time there.. Some of the transformations will be dramatic while others extremely subtle.. Some will be architectural while others will be image based.. Visitors will be invited to give feedback and to revisit the space, as it will be changing every 3-4 days.. The Artist Project Space Residency is a new facet of the Kala Fellowship Program that invites artists to develop projects in a studio space open to the public during their residency period.. This program is geared toward artists making work that is appropriate to develop onsite and engages the public in some form.. Artists are given access to a 20 x25 project space for one month, in which time it is open to the public for viewing during normal gallery hours.. Kala Artists Annual 2013 Exhibition..

Berkeley, CA.. “Water City, Berkeley,” by acclaimed artist Kim Anno, is an experimental, extraordinarily cinematic multi-channel film that imagines life after rising sea levels have fundamentally shifted the local landscape.. In this new, watery world, young people, queer people, office workers and artists continue to play music, dance, invent new sports and games, read poetry, share meals – as the rising seas forever alter their lives.. The film explores ways of maintaining an aesthetic life and leisure time when the sea has entered the city as a result  ...   a dissonance between what we see and where it comes from..

She received her BFA from University of Utah and BS from School of Dentistry at University of California, San Francisco.. She also has extensive training in printmaking and sculpture at San Francisco Art Institute and private workshops.. She is currently practicing dentistry in the Bay Area.. Emma Spertus investigates the varied ways in which the act of photography or the resulting images are used as a starting point of her sculptural forms..

Her sculptures play with the spatial qualities of representation and activate uncanny cinematic dialogues between objects and spaces.. Emma received her MFA from Hunter College, NY and her BA from Macalester College, Saint Paul.. She has exhibited her work at venues such as Important Projects and Transmission Gallery in Oakland, Stairwell s Project, San Francisco, White Columns, New York and many more..

Join us for the Opening Reception on September 4, Wednesday, 6-8pm.. Voulkos, Inspired presents the work of five artists and one collaborative duo – Double Zero, Leah Rosenberg, Maysha Mohamedi, Peter Voulkos, Randy Colosky, and Travis Meinolf.. The artists work, along with a Q A, presents a localized engagement with the work and life of iconic Berkeley-based artist, Peter Voulkos.. Double Zero (duo Annie Vaught and Hannah Ireland) utilizes their 20 year friendship as the basis for investigating the ways they affect one another, the boundaries between themselves, and different modes of taking up space in the world.. Leah Rosenberg, a painter and a pastry chef, pushes genres with a nod to function, pleasure, and the senses.. Maysha Mohamedi’s large-scale paintings and smaller sculptures explode with vigorous physicality and embedded autobography.. A 1997 Kala-printed edition by Peter Voulkos will be on view.. Randy Colosky recalls Voulkos’ influence on his early work in ceramics as well as his current expanded sculpture practice that employs bold and playful re-tooling of materials.. Travis Mienolf heeds Voulkos’ directives from a dream to “cut it up!” and presents collaboratively woven blankets – cut up, reassembled, and on-offer for free.. Voulkos, Inspired is the fourth exhibition in Kala’s new off-site exhibition series featuring artworks from Berkeley-based artists and the Kala community.. 2010.. Powered by.. Wordpress..
