Here is the list of Fall 2012 Studio Space assignments.
Over a dozen students requested studio space for next term, and, unfortunately, the department only had seven spaces to provide. The following students, through faculty recommendation, will be provided with studios in room 105 for Fall 2012. Please note that each term the studios are re-evaluated. It's a use it or lose it situation since we have a high demand. If you were not awarded a studio this term, please reapply to get a studio next term. The studios are assigned based on merit, seniority and need. Familiarizing your faculty with your work by participating in class regularly and making your voice heard can be helpful. Also, it is more difficult for students out of term to get awarded a studio, for the simple reason there is no new work on which to base a conclusion.
The studio map will be posted in the fine art office. We offer two-types of spaces: individual studios and shared open-studios. They are assigned based on the perceived use of production.
[Fall 2012 studio map]
All materials must be kept in the studio spaces. There is no storage in hallways or near the gray lockers. Work left unattended will be discarded.

8/9: GRAD SEMINAR: SIMON LEUNG
Art Center Graduate Seminar
Tuesday, August 10
Los Angeles Times (LAT) Theater
Born in Hong Kong and living primarily in Los Angeles, Simon Leung is an artist and writer who works across multiple disciplines and media. His project-based practice has included "squatting projects" in various cities, an opera set in Los Angeles's Griffith Park, a rethinking of the psychological, philosophical and political dimensions of AIDS in the figure of the glory hole, a reposing of Marcel Duchamp’s oeuvre as a discourse in ethics, and meditations on “the residual space of the Vietnam War,” which encompass projects on the squatting body as counter-architecture, on military desertion as asceticism, and on surfing. Leung’s talk will concentrate on the upcoming iteration of his ongoing POE project, an extended video meditation on the figure of Edgar Allan Poe and its relevance to contemporary art and political life. POE was initially prompted by the position the author has long occupied in literary and theoretical discourses (e.g., Baudelaire, Lacan and Derrida) and in the writings of Robert Smithson, who contended that "Poe's Narrative of A. Gordon Pym [seemed to him to be] excellent art criticism and prototype of rigorous 'non-site' investigations." Intermingling theory and fiction, criticism and performance, POE accepts Smithson's challenge for a rigorous investigation of the "site/non-site" dialectic, and in so doing collides with many key narratives of contemporary art's historically themed reception of site-specificity.
Leung's work has been included in the Guangzhou Triennial (2008), the Venice Biennale (2003) and the Whitney Biennial (1993), and exhibited at MOMA, PS1 and Pat Hearn Gallery in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, MOCA and the Santa Monica Museum of Art in Los Angeles, NGBK in Berlin, the MIT List Visual Arts Center in Cambridge, MA, and the Generali Foundation in Vienna. He has received awards from the College Art Association for his writing, and fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and the City of Los Angeles. Leung is co-editor of Theory in Contemporary Art since 1985. He has taught at UCLA, New York University, Cal Arts, Rhode Island School of Design and, since 2001, the University of California, Irvine, where he is a Professor in Studio Art.8/2: END OF TERM SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

8/2: GRAD SEMINAR: JO ANN CALLIS
Art Center Graduate Seminar
Tuesday, August 3
Los Angeles Times (LAT) Theater
A pioneering photographer, Jo Ann Callis established a reputation in the 1980s as one of the first artists in the contemporary American context to construct sets and stage situations solely for the purpose of producing a photograph. Jo Ann received her MFA from UCLA in the late-1970s, where her mentor, Robert Heinecken, taught that photographs should be made, not found, and she has been constructing photographic images, paintings and sculpture in her studio ever since. Her work has been presented in more than twenty solo shows and numerous group exhibitions, including the Museum of Modern Art’s landmark “Pleasures and Terrors of Domestic Comfort” (1991), which included artists such as Gregory Crewdson, Nic Nicosia, Laurie Simmons and Cindy Sherman, and which effectively redefined the realm of the domestic subject in postmodern American photography.
More recently, Jo Ann has been the subject of the solo exhibitions “Jo Ann Callis: Domestic Setups” (1995) at the Santa Monica Museum of Art, “Jo Ann Callis: Cake, Hat, Pillow” (2004) at the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, and her 2009 retrospective “Woman Twirling” at the J. Paul Getty Museum. Her work is represented in the collections of MOMA in New York, The Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco, LACMA and MOCA in Los Angeles, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, The Center of Creative Photography in Tucson, the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and The National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto, to name just a few. As professor of photography at Cal Arts for more than three decades, she has exerted a formative influence on the scores of now-established photographic artists emerging from Los Angeles and, by extension, on contemporary American photographic art in general.

"Defining Your Work," is a fourth term recommended prep class for 5th term review. The class will be taught by Tom Knechtel and Jean Rasenberger in alternating terms. Tom is Fall 2010 faculty. It is highly recommended that this terms 3rd term students register for the class. In fact, please discuss it in your 3rd term reviews week 12 with Laurence and the faculty. This class is 3 units of credit. Since "Defining Your Work" is a new class, it will only appear on the graduation audits of “new” incoming students. Also, the previously required 5th Term Review is now a required 3 unit class entitled, “5th Term Review Class” being taught by Dave Bailey as a required class for all fine art student. The class is now a 3 unit class, meeting 3 hours a week, plus the 5th term review in the middle of the term.
It is important that 4th and 5th term students register for these classes. You are responsible for your curriculum schedule.
How to judge if you are 4th or 5th term? 4th term students should have 35 plus credit hours in their 4th term, and currently be going through 3rd term review. 5th term students should have a minimum of 70 units (beginning Junior year). Check in the Fine At Office if you have a question about your status.
7/14: GRAD SEMINAR: LECIA DOLE-RECIO
Thursday, July 15
South Campus, Room 254
950 South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena, CA
“In Dole-Recio’s work, paint appears in splatters, washy gradated veils, calm swaths, and vibrantly tinted pools—often within a single piece. Crystallized rather than deconstructed, her grids have been transmuted like coal into diamond, faceted by various cuts and incisions. In one of her grandest works, Untitled, 2006, a squid-ink-black ground is enlivened by touches of hot pink and flecks of gold. Figure and ground are confused, blurred, and/or troubled to a point where the two concepts become frustrating and frustrated. What could be taken for skeletal elements shift toward the exoskeletal; shadow becomes that which casts shadow (both actual and illusionistic), “wrong” sides become “right” (i.e. “wronger”), cuts appear to connect rather than sever. This undoing—of sense, of structure, of rationalization—is accomplished through a radical saming, in which the work’s surface is eroticized by its every site being made a potential node of pleasure, nonhierarchical and immediate, as the materials’ physical othernesses are manipulated into a kind of equivalence. […] Eschewing stabilizing reference, Dole-Recio allows abstraction to be bracingly abstract—unsolved. In her work, process reveals itself to be (paradoxically?) the fundament of illusion, the imaginary; tracking the literal materializes the improper. What is seen is not only what is seeable.”
--Bruce Hainley (on Lecia’s 2006 MOCA “Focus” exhibition)

6/28: GRAD SEMINAR: BRUCE YONEMOTO
Tuesday, June 29
Los Angeles Times (LAT) Theater
Bruce Yonemoto has developed a body of work positioned at the intersections of art and commerce, the gallery world and the television screen. His work attempts to manipulate an audience while simultaneously recognizing the mechanisms of manipulation, asserting more broadly that the composition of mass media has become a new historical site of the domination of human behavior. During his twenty-year collaboration with his brother, Norman, Bruce has been honored with numerous awards and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Film Institute, The Rockefeller Foundation, and the Maya Deren Award for Experimental Film and Video.
Bruce’s installations, photographs and sculptures have been featured in solo shows at the ICC Intercommunication Center and the Tomio Kayama Gallery in Tokyo; Blum & Poe, Lemon Sky Projects and the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles; Gray Kapernekas and Casey Kaplan galleries in New York; the ICA in Philadelphia; the Kemper Museum in Kansas City; the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio; MIT List Visual Arts Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Musee d'Art Modern et Contemporain, Strasbourg, France; Convento de Santo Domingo, Qorikancha, Cuzco, Peru; and Espaco Cultural Sergio Porto, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

6/21: GRAD SEMINAR: MILES COOLIDGE
Monday, June 21
South Campus, Room 254
950 South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena, CA
Miles Coolidge is an artist and professor of photography at University of California, Irvine. His work has appeared in solo exhibitions at Casey Kaplan in New York, ACME in Los Angeles, Galerie Gisela Capitain in Cologne; Galerie Lisa Ruyter in Vienna; the Orange County Museum and Pasadena Museum of California Art, among others.

He has lived and worked in Los Angeles since 1989, and is currently working on a book presenting his projects of the past sixteen years in print form, tentatively entitled,"Past Performance Is No Guaranty of Future Success."
6/17: GRAD SEMINAR: TYLER VLAHOVICH
Thursday, June 17
South Campus, Room 254
950 South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena, CA
The paintings, drawings and sculptures in Tyler Vlahovich’s most recent solo exhibition The Cones (John Tevis Gallery, Paris, 2010) resuscitate and modify aspects of art history from Chinese wall painting to Mesoamerican calligraphy. Seduced by the narrative style of cave and wall paintings found in the ancient Silk Road town of Tun-huang in western China, Vlahovich loosely divides the picture space in his new watercolor and ink on paper works into cell-like structures, serially repeated but with entire sections of the work left bare, as if time or an interloper made off with crucial pieces of the puzzle. The relationship between the muted, abstract shapes and the hollowed-out voids is symbiotic, allowing the cells to coalesce into an overall image of images.
Since 2000, Tyler Vlahovich has been included in numerous group exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe, and has had solo shows at Goldman Tevis, Mary Goldman and WPA in Los Angeles, Feature Inc. in New York, and Twig Gallery, Brussels, among others.
6/14: GRAD SEMINAR: EVAN HOLLOWAY
Tuesday, June 15
South Campus, Room 254
950 South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena, CA
Evan Holloway's sculptures combine the abstract, linear and geometric with the figurative and organic. Informed by music and color theory, economics and mathematics, he creates distinctive, often elegant and sometimes profoundly strange forms that make persistent reference to the history of 20th century sculpture. His work poses formal questions about scale, color, line, shape and symmetry while at the same time making references to popular culture, historical narratives and social ideologies.
Holloway’s work begins, so to speak, with his simultaneous reverence for and mistrust of Modernist sculpture. While twentieth century art historical antecedents such as Brancusi, Duchamp and Rauschenberg are important to reading his work, Holloway is more interested in expanding this set of references to include ancient ritual, symbolic form and the occult. Moreover, his work rejects accepted notions of taste and hierarchy of materials, blending simple, craft-like media with more traditional material and technical means. The result is a tacit commingling of the cerebral and the visceral.
Holloway received his BA from University of California, Santa Cruz and MFA from The University of California, Los Angeles. His work may be found in the collections of the Hirschhorn Museum, The Whitney Museum of American Art, the Hammer Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. He has had numerous solo exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe since 1994 and has been represented by Marc Foxx in Los Angeles since 1997. His work has also been included in notable group exhibitions such as the Whitney Biennial and The California Biennial in 2002, “Gone Formalism” at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia in 2005, and “The Uncertainty of Objects and Ideas” at the Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in 2006.
6/8: GRAD SEMINAR: MARNIE WEBER
Tuesday, June 8
Los Angeles Times (LAT) Theater
Marnie Weber's work of the past ten years has relied increasingly on her ability to live in the realm of the speculative and fantastic. She entertains narratives without feeling the need to resolve them in unifying conclusions or morals, imaging a parallel "what if" universe without submitting to an "if-then" logic. Recently, this predilection met her interest in the progressive, populist, and protofeminist mid-nineteenth-century American Spiritualist movement, which undermined both social hierarchies and established religious models by proposing equal access to an afterlife, with women often functioning as mediums to help us make the connection.
6/1: GRAD SEMINAR: HIlJA KEADING
Art Center Graduate Seminar
Tuesday, June 1
Los Angeles Times (LAT) Theater
Hilja Keading's videos and video installations investigate the psychology of performance, the formation of selfhood and the interplay between individual and collective consciousness, while considering conflicts of judgement such as how something can be simultaneously beautiful and ugly, absurd and profound, tragic and comedic. Her work contains performative elements ranging from the artist herself performing for the camera to footage she takes documenting events such as circus acts and rodeo performances. It also addresses the often unconscious processes of language and wordplay and attempts to deal with the struggle between the authoritative voice of society and that of the inner self, producing mysterious narratives and environments that are profoundly moving in their evocation of both simple childhood joys and fears and complex adult psychological dramas.
Keading's videos and single- and multi-channel video installations have been broadcast on television and exhibited internationally in galleries and museums since 1987, including the Lyon Biennale, The Museum of Modern Art, Denmark, The Los Angeles County Museum, The Henry Art Gallery in Seattle, The Geffen Contemporary and J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the PPOW Gallery in New York City. In 2007, Keading's solo exhibition The Bonkers Devotional, a five-channel video installation portraying Keading interacting with a live black bear in a small cabin surrounded by quaking aspen trees, was shown in Videoformes at La Tolerie, Clermont-Ferrand, France. Keading's permanent video installation as part of the 28-channel "Filmstrip" Video Wall at the Tom Bradley International Terminal at the Los Angeles airport is scheduled for this year. She is the recipient of several awards and grants from the NEA, C.O.L.A., Teseque Foundation and others.
Keading received her Bachelor of Arts and Master of Fine Arts from UCLA. She was an Artist in Residence at the Children's Hospital in Los Angeles from 1996 to 1999, and has taught in the Studio Art Department of UC Irvine, School of Fine Art at USC, and is currently teaching in the Studio Art Department at UC Riverside.
5/24: GRAD SEMINAR: MICHAEL SMITH
Tuesday, May 25
Los Angeles Times (LAT) Theater
1700 Lida Street, Pasadena , CA
Michael Smith is a video/performance/installation artist known for his eponymous performance persona named Mike, the central figure in an ongoing series of large-scale narrative based projects. Mike, an innocent who continually falls victim to trends and fashions while traversing an imperfect landscape, allows Smith to create an unsettling mixture of humor and pathos while commenting on discrepancies and absurdities in our culture.
Smith has shown his work extensively around the US and Europe at a variety of venues including museums, galleries, universities, festivals, nightclubs, on television and in the streets. In New York City he has had solo shows and screenings at The Whitney Museum, The New Museum, The Leo Castelli Gallery, The Christine Burgin Gallery and the Museum of Modern Art . In 2007-08 Smith’s retrospective “Mike’s World: Solo and Collaborative Works by Michael Smith and Joshua White (& other collaborators)” was exhibited at the Blanton Museum in Austin and at The ICA in Philadelphia . Smith was included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial and “The Pictures Generation: 1974-1984”, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Michael Smith received his Bachelor of Arts from The Colorado College and attended the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program.

4/12: GRAD SEMINAR: REENA SPAULDING
Tuesday, April 13th
L.A. Times Theatre
"In 2004, the New York-based artist Reena Spaulings emerged from the daily operation of an art gallery (Reena Spaulings Fine Art, founded by John Kelsey & Emily Sundblad) on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Often playing on the double-identity of art dealer and artist, Spaulings' work undermines professional divisions of labor and disciplinary hierarchies, while interrogating accepted notions of individual authorship and agency.
For her first solo show "The One & Only", 2005, Reena Spaulings presented a series of hybrid painting/sculptures in the form of wall-mounted flags. Using the kind of readymade flagpoles commonly seen on suburban American house fronts and small New York business-fronts, this gesture could be read as more of an occupation than an installation, claiming a territory in another dealer's Chelsea gallery in order to problematize the protocols by which dealers "represent" artists and their work.
Reena Spaulings has also produced publications, performances and underground dance music. Reena Spaulings Fine Art is located on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. (www.reenaspaulings.com <http://www.reenaspaulings.com> )."

Hi, all. Our speaker for this coming week, Dr. Catherine Benkaim, has had to change her schedule and will be coming at 2:15 instead of 4:15. (These things happen frequently with guest speakers.) So please show up at 2:00 for class this Wednesday; we'll do the individual meetings afterwards. Given the erratic nature of emails and people checking them, I'd be very grateful if you could also spread the word to everyone you know who's in the class! Thanks, and we'll see you Wednesday, Tom
3/ 29: GRAD SEMINAR: LUCKY DRAGONS
Tuesday, Mar. 30th
L.A. Times Theatre
"lucky dragons <http://www.hawksandsparrows.org/> " means any recorded or performed or installed or packaged or shared or suggested or imagined pieces made by Luke Fischbeck, Sarah Rara, and/or any sometimes collaborators who claim the name. the name "lucky dragons" is borrowed from a japanese fishing boat caught in the fallout of hydrogen bomb test at bikini atoll in the 1950's. the crew stricken ill, and the boat itself contaminated, the "lucky dragon" became a crystalizing symbol for the previously diffuse worldwide anti-nuclear sentiment. eventually the boat was painted black, renamed the "dark falcon", and put into reuse as a fishing vessel, until it was retired and disposed of on the man-made trash island "dream island", where it remains today.
lucky dragons are about the birthing of new and temporary creatures--equal-power situations in which audience members cooperate amongst themselves, building up fragile networks held together by such light things as skin contact, unfamiliar language, temporary logic, the spirit of celebration, and things that work but you don't know why. There have been hundreds of these simple yet shifting and unpredictable instances--with audiences ranging from the intense intimacy of one person to the public spectacle of thousands of people. At the heart of it all is playing together--building up social collectivities, re-engaging the wonder and impossibility of technological presence. It sounds--and looks--like simple and ancient patterns coming together and falling apart in a sincere attempt to let wires and screens and words become clear and crystal.
Lucky Dragons keep a busy schedule of performances, festivals and workshops and things, in the present, and in the past: The Institute for Contemporary Arts London, the 2008 Whitney Biennial, NY's PS1, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Philadelphia Institute for Contemporary Art, the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Frankfurt's Schirn Kunsthalle, Los Angeles' The Smell, NY's The Kitchen, The Smithsonian Institute's Hirshorn Museum, Cooper Union, the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, etc. Lucky dragons live in Los Angeles California and have recorded 19 albums which are all available for downloading.
lucky dragons' sister projects include "sumi ink club <http://www.sumiinkclub.com/> "--a weekly collaborative drawing society, and "glaciers of nice <http://www.glaciersofnice.com/> "--a small press and internet community. today's influences: nikki de st phalle, joan didion, CoBrA group, crass, hieronymous bosch, thomas jefferson, tina turner, allan kaprow, joan jonas, bruce nauman, mayan codices, ivor cutler, jacques ranciere, helio oiticica, lygia clark, giorgio agamben, pauline oliveros, terry riley, plastic people of the universe, eliane radigue, bruno munari.

2/8: GRAD SEMINAR: PAUL PFEIFFER
Monday, Feb. 8th
Borrowing footage from television, movies, and sports events that serve as raw material and building blocks for his work, Paul Pfeiffer creates video, sculpture, and installations. Using iconic images of spectacles and celebrities, he plays with the canonization of memory and history, as in a digitally erased Marilyn Monroe or ghostly image of Muhammad Ali fighting in the ring ask viewers to question their own spectatorship and desire. Informed by, among others, Francis Bacon, Warhol and DaVinci’s Vitruvian Man, his large-scale pieces wrestle with notions of power while the miniature works evoke intimacy. In a recent colossal production, he recorded a hired crowd of 1,000 men to re-create the sounds of 100,000 fans cheering during a World Cup match. In all of his work, from a lush, sunrise and sunset shot, and shown, in real time, to a twenty-four hour a day, seventy-five day long piece, where New York commuters could watch a video of a nest full of eggs hatching and then growing into chickens, Pfeiffer is saying: pay attention. One critic summed up his body of work, “One can feel the deepening of love – and the holes left open by need.”

1/28: GRAD SEMINAR: RICHARD SHIFF
Thursday, Jan. 28th
"Figuration and Materiality"
At a time when the questions art historians ask are expected to receive answers, Richard Schiff presents a challenging alternative. Schiff embraces doubt as a critical tool and asks how particular theories of art have come to be. However, he does not retreat to relativism but rather insists on clear thinking about art and its values, including the much debated topics of self-reference and self-difference.
Richard Schiff holds the Effie Marie Cain Regents Chair in Art at the University of Texas at Austin, where he directs the Center for the Study of Modernism. His most recent publicatons is Doubt (Theories of Modernism and Postmodernism in the Visual Arts, 2007) , his other publications include: Cezanne and the End of Impressionism: A Study of the Theory Technique and Evaluation of Modern Art (1986), Critical Terms for Art History (2003), and Barnett Newman: A Catalogue Raisonne (2004).
1/26: GRAD SEMINAR: MARTIN KALTWASSER
Tuesday, Jan. 26th, 7:30pm
Los Angeles Times (LAT) Theater
"The public space is under siege – the compulsion to consume, increasedmonitoring, and continuously expanding automobile traffic threatento fundamentally change the appearance of our cities. Since 1998,the two artists Folke Köbberling and Martin Kaltwasser havebeen implementing their concept of an artistic and architectural aesthetic of resistance to this appropriation. Their work presents alternatives to this consumer ideology – through structural interventions,artistic statements, actions, and theories. The artists use streets, squares, bridges, parks and interior spaces as their areas of operation. The materials applied by them always consistof “urban resources” – such as litter, trash, and donations. As a result,each work is based on communicative and social moments. Their strategies encourage emulation, distribution, and multiplication, as they can be implemented with very simple materials."
The work of Kaltwasser/Koebberling has been shown in numerous institutions worldwide including, most recently, Chinati Foundation, Marfa, USA, Galerie Anselm Dreher, Berlin, GermanyCCA Centre for Contemporary Art, Ujazdowski Castle, Warsaw, Poland, Wysing Arts Centre, Bourn/Cambridge, UK, Shedhalle, Zürich, Switzerland, São Paulo Biennal of Architecture, Brazil, MARTa Museum Herford, Germany and S.M.A.K., Gent, Belgium.

7/29: GRAD SEMINAR: MARTIN KERSELS
Tuesday, July 28
Los Angeles Times (LAT) Theater
Martin Kersels is a sculptor, installation, video and performance artist who lives and works in Los Angeles. Born here in 1960, he received both his B.A. and M.F.A from the University of California Los Angeles. Kersels began his career as a performance artist, collaborating on works with the group SHRIMPS from 1984-93, traveling throughout the United States to New York, Chicago, San Francisco and other cities. He went on to make a series of what he called “performative objects”: machines or sculptural devices which move and/or generate sounds, taking over the exhibition space, at times the entire gallery, and functioning as awkward stand-ins for the artist himself. His subsequent large-scale sculptures and installations, which typically incorporate audio, video, mechanical and photographic elements, remain influenced by his performance work, particularly in their manipulation of time, movement, scale and brute physicality, as well as their persistent sense of the preposterous and absurd.

6/16: GRAD SEMINAR: UTA BARTH
Tuesday, June 16
LA Times Theater
6/9: GRAD SEMINAR: LIZ GLYNN
Tuesday, June 9
LA Times Theater
Liz Glynn is a Los Angeles based artist who uses objects and actions to dramatize the ambition of empire and explore the pleasure of ruin. Her work deals with how relics of the past may relate to refuse of the present and to current methods of preservation, exhibition and historical recollection. Incorporating a dense frame of reference from ancient Roman architecture to modern protest culture, her practice seeks to embody dynamic cycles of growth, potentiality and decay by evidencing process, encouraging participation and inciting future action.
Glynn’s performance/sculpture “Building Rome in a Day”, recently included in the New Museum’s “The Generational: Younger Than Jesus” show, enacted and documented a rebuilding of ancient Rome in cardboard and other found materials salvaged from the museum's waste stream. The piece was built and destroyed in a 24-hour period with the help of volunteers. It's final construction, which drew from various archaeological and art-historical sources, schematic drawings and photographs of excavation sites, was less concerned with faithful reconstruction than the processes of translation whereby ancient source materal may yield compelling readings of the present moment.
6/8: BIG PICTURE: THIERRY DE DUVE
Monday 1-2pm, Ahamanson Auditorium
This Is Art, Isn't It? (The Anatomy of a Sentence)
Thierry de Duve is Professor at Université Lille 3, Département Arts Plastiques in Villeneuve d'Ascq, France.

6/2: GRAD SEMINAR: DAVE MULLER
Art Center Graduate Seminar
Los Angeles Times (LAT) Theater
Dave Muller is an artist, musician, DJ and curator. He received his MFA from Cal Arts in 1993. In 1994, he founded “Three Day Weekend,” an artist-run exhibition project that began in his Los Angeles home and has since traveled to numerous cities in the U.S. , Europe and Japan . The three-day group shows and events have generally featured his friends and artists he likes, providing exhibition space outside the museum or gallery system. Muller’s hand-drawn fliers and posters for these events are integral if not essential to understanding his work as a whole. Taken together, these ephemeral exhibitions and Muller’s hybrid art works/promotional materials blur conventional distinctions between artist and producer, curator and impresario, while cozying up to the territories of self-promotion, advertisement and institutionalized art exhibition.
Muller is also known for his multilayered installations that bring together his own musical mixes and his visual works. These works explore ideas of personal preference, taste and admiration through the lens of music memorabilia and the history of rock and roll. In “As Below, So Above,” commissioned by The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston (2008), Muller proposed an interconnectivity of musical history and natural history using various devices: a history of rock and roll in time-line form, framed detailed renderings of record spines, drawings of plants and other ecological forms, all arranged within and around a large scale mural and accompanied by a soundtrack of 136,125 songs from his own personal music library. Dave Muller was born in San Francisco and currently lives and works in Los Angeles .

Since the late 1980s, Bruce LaBruce has worked in a variety of media, including artist publications, photography, film and cinematography. LaBruce's most recent film project, "Otto; Or, Up With Dead People," which premiered at the Sundance and Berlin film festivals, and went on to be shown at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and other prominent venues around the world, introduced the public to a new genre in the already-expansive vocabulary of LaBruce: horror. With his latest project, "Untitled Hardcore Zombie Project," just opened at Peres Projects in Los Angeles, LaBruce has marked a path to uncharted territory.

4/7: GRAD SEMINAR: OLIVIER MOSSET
Tuesday, April 7, LAT Theater 7:30 p.m.
Olivier Mosset’s astute and often provocative approach to painting has kept him at the cutting-edge of contemporary art since he first came to prominence in Paris in the late 1960's alongside Daniel Buren, Michel Parmentier, and Niele Toroni. After relocating to New York in 1978, Mosset’s body of monochrome canvases were a key influence on the generation of Neo-Geo painters who emerged in the 80’s.
Working always within painting's particular limitations and concerns, and with a deep understanding of the sensuality and physicality of color, Mosset's work nevertheless engages acutely with the network of institutional relations that underlie our encounter with art. For his 2003 solo show at Spencer Brownstone Gallery, the artist installed two huge floor-to-ceiling monochrome canvases, whose sublime scale and orange coloring were playfully undermined by the fact that the artist chose their color based on the gallery’s letterhead design.
Mosset’s shaped canvases similarly play games with our expectations of the meaning and functions of painting. In his 2007 gallery show, a three-part yellow circular work that was shown next to two customized motorcycles designed by legendary mechanic Indian Larry, could be read as either pure painting, or an almost absurd cipher for a motorbike-and-rider. As the late Jean Baudrillard noted, Olivier's work is "…like a witticism, in its nonsensical and elliptical form, ridiculing all the heavy armature of language and communication."

3/24: GRAD SEMINAR: ABSTRACTION:
Tuesday March 24, LATimes Theater, 7:30pm.
A Discussion on Abstraction
The upcoming Graduate Seminar will focus on the topic of abstraction. Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe and Jason Smith will be coordinating an open dialogue about abstraction in contemporary art.
The purpose of the seminar is to provide a forum with which to discuss our particular interests in the topic. Please come prepared with questions.

Tuesday March 17th, LATimes
Los Angeles-based artist Laura Owens' work blends abstract and representational imagery. Her work draws inspiration from English embroidery, Chinese and Japanese landscape painting, European and American modernism, and her own photography, often creating collages and fine line drawings. She acknowledges film, computer, and television imagery among her influences. Her paintings are often grandly scaled, address color and vary in the application of paint to the canvas. Owens studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence (1992); California Institute of the Arts, Valencia (1994); and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Maine (1994). Laura Owens's paintings have been exhibited in group exhibitions in museums in the United States and Europe, including L.A.C.E.

3/9: GRAD SEMINAR: WOLFGANG MULLER
Tuesday, March 9th, LATimes, 7:30pm
"I spy with my little eye": The visions of bats, elves and deadly doris
Wolfgang Müller is an author, musician and fine artist. He was born 1957 in Wolfsburg, Germany and has been living in Berlin since 1979. Wolfgang was founder of the post-punk Band Die Tödliche Doris (1980 – 1987) (www.die-toedliche-doris.de) which had concerts in Eastern- and Western Europe, Japan, and the USA. In 1987, Die Tödliche Doris was a particpating artist of Documenta 8 in Kassel. In 1982 Müller published “Geniale Dilletanten” (Ingenious Dilettants), a manifesto of the West-Berlin music and multia-media underground scene. With “Die Tödliche Doris” he explored the construction of form and image in Pop music. He mainly works in unmusical, nonmusical, extramusical spaces. In 1987 the Tödliche Doris disbanded into white vine. This was the same year, that Michel Jackson released his very succesful record BAD and Müller released BAT, a very poor selling vinyl-LP with the ultrasonic sounds of seven different species of bats, only audible audible made with ultrasonic-detector. The last of the one thousand exemplars were sold in 2007.
In 1990, he was invited to the Reykjavik Art Festival for an exhibition and performance at the Living Art Museum. Since then he has visited Iceland more than 30 times and has written about its culture, country, nature, and people for newspapers, radio, and television: he also organized exhibitions in Iceland and Germany. Iceland became a kind of a “material” for Wolfgang Müller’s art work, which he realizes in different media: sound, music, objects, text, film, video, drawing, and painting. His bilingual book “Blue Tit – das deutsch-isländische Blaumeisenbuch” (Blue Tit – the German-Icelandic Titmouse book) was published 1996. His new book “Neues von der Elfenfront – Die Wahrheit über Island” (News from the Elf-Front – The Truth About Iceland) was published in 2007.
From 2002-2003 Wolfgang Müller was professor at Hochschule der bildenden Künste in Hamburg and taught “experimental sculpture.“ He has written and directed eight radioplays for the national German radio. The most recent is “Seancé Vocibus Avium”, with the reconstructed sounds of eleven extinct birds, including the sounds of the extinct Icelandic Great Auk. In 1998, Wolfgang Müller transformed the music and lyrics of his first LP from 1981 with the assistance of two sign language interpreters, and published the results as the DVD “Gehörlose Musik” (Deaf Music) in 2007.

From 2004 until 2006 he held the post of professor at the Universitat der Kunste, Berlin.
3/2: BIG PICTURE LECTURE: ARDEN REED: SLOW ART
Big Picture Lecture Monday, March 2nd at 1pm in Ahmanson Auditorium.
In an image-saturated environment, how do we slow down long enough to have meaningful encounters with aesthetic objects? My book studies strategies that visual artists use to slow our acts of perceiving their work. The project began by my remembering the quirky and sort of vulgar 19th-century parlor game of ‘tableaux vivants’, where people staged themselves as famous artworks, whose identity their friends would try to guess. I thought: in age of cultural acceleration like our own, here were people going to some trouble to stand still or watch other people standing still. I wondered why we're fascinated to watch people not moving, and also what happens when a painting comes off the canvas into the world?
Gradually I came to realize that that the great age of tableaux vivants
wasn’t the 19th-century, as everybody supposed, but right now. Today
tableaux vivants morph into many media and serve varied ends: appropriation art, video, film, photography, performance art, fiction, new media. Critics have remarked individual instances, but nobody has connected the dots. I want to talk about the practice of staging tableaux in both 19th century and today, across diverse forms and genres. To put it differently: I’m interested in work that explores the territory between still and moving images. This leads to the question whether, by family resemblance, there is such a thing or field as ‘slow art’? I focus on the visual arts and
literature, but the question obviously applies to theater, music and dance,
and in certain ways also to design and architecture.
Arden Reed is the Arthur M. and Fanny M. Dole Professor of English at Pomona College, Claremont, California. He is currently on a Guggenheim Fellowship to write Slow Art: Tableaux Vivants to James Turrell, which will be
published by the University of California Press. Previous books include:
Romantic Weather: The Climates of Coleridge and Baudelaire (University Press of New England, 1984); Constance DeJong: Metal (University of New Mexico Press, 2003); Manet, Flaubert, and the Emergence of Modernism (Cambridge University Press, 2003).
2/24: GRAD SEMINAR: MORGAN FISCHER
Tuesday, February 24, LAT Theater, 7:30-10:00
Morgan Fisher, born 1942, received his A.B. (1965) in Fine Arts from Harvard College. He went on to receive his M.A. in cinema from the University of Southern California in 1965, and his M.F.A in Motion Picture Division from UCLA in 1966. He mixes cinematic history, autobiography and art historical references in his exploration of film-making. The majority of Fisher’s works are directly concerned with the machinery of cinema. He creates systems and rules that exploit the apparatus, physical material and production methods of movies. Morgan Fisher's playful, self-referential films includes works such as Standard Gauge (1984), a repository of abandoned footage in which the blunt description of an industry standard flows into profound musings on the film industry and the ruthlessness of change. Defunct television episodes, ‘China girls’, glorious frames that resemble El Lissitzky and Mark Rothko paintings, Jean-Luc Godard, Roger Corman, Edgar G Ulmer and Leonard Kastle combine to illustrate a metaphorical biography of the history of film and a partial autobiography of Fisher himself.His gallery works include conceptual paintings and exhibitions maintaining a close relationship with cinema. The most recent, at Adamski in Aachen, Germany, presented several “edge and corner paintings.” The dimensions of these triangular grey monochromes were dictated by the architecture of the gallery. Morgan Fisher’s work has existed under the radar for over twenty years. Solo exhibitions include Standard Gauge: Film Works by Morgan Fisher at the Whitney Museum of Art, 2005, The Films by Morgan Fisher at the Tate Modern in London, 2005, and Made in California Now at LACMA, 2000. His work is represented by China Art Objects, Los Angeles. Fisher currently lives and works in Santa Monica, CA
2/17 &18: GRAD SEMINAR: WJT MITCHELL, MICHAEL FRIED
In Grad Seminar, WJT Mitchell will be speaking on Tuesday February 17 at 7:30 in the LAT. On Wednesday February 18 Michael Fried will lecture at 7:30 in the LAT.
W. J. T. Mitchell: Idolatry: Nietzsche, Blake, Poussin.
W. J. T. Mitchell is Professor of English and Art History at the University of Chicago. He is editor of the interdisciplinary journal, Critical Inquiry, a quarterly devoted to critical theory in the arts and human sciences. A scholar and theorist of media, visual art, and literature, Mitchell is associated with the emergent fields of visual culture and iconology (the study of images across the media). He is known especially for his work on the relations of visual and verbal representations in the context of social and political issues. Under his editorship, Critical Inquiry has published special issues on public art, psychoanalysis, pluralism, feminism, the sociology of literature, canons, race and identity, narrative, the politics of interpretation, postcolonial theory, and many other topics. He has been the recipient of numerous awards including the Guggenheim Fellowship and the Morey Prize in art history given by the College Art Association of America. In 2003, he received the University of Chicago's prestigious Faculty Award for Excellence in Graduate Teaching. His publications include: "The Pictorial Turn," Artforum, March 1992; "What Do Pictures Want?" October, Summer 1996; What Do Pictures Want? (2005); The Last Dinosaur Book: The Life and Times of a Cultural Icon (1998); Picture Theory (1994); Art and the Public Sphere (1993); Landscape and Power (1992); Iconology (1987); The Language of Images (1980); On Narrative (1981); and The Politics of Interpretation (1984).
Michael Fried is an influential Modernist art critic and art historian. He is currently the J.R. Herbert Boone Professor of Humanities and Art History at the Johns Hopkins University, Fried's preeminent contribution to art historical discourse involved the debate over the origins and development of modernism.
In his essay, Art and Objecthood, Fried suggested that Minimalism had betrayed Modernism's exploration of the medium by becoming emphatic about its own materiality as to deny the viewer a proper aesthetic experience. Minimalism (or "literalism" as Fried called it) offered an experience of "theatricality" rather than "presentness"; it left the viewer in his or her ordinary, non-transcendent world. The essay inadvertently opened the door to establishing a theoretical basis for Minimalism as a movement based in phenomenological experience. Art and Objecthood remains among the most important pieces of art criticism on 20th century American art, and is still ardently debated. In Art and Objecthood Fried criticised the "theatricality" of Minimalist art. He introduced the opposing term "absorption" in his 1980 book, Absorption and Theatricality: Painting and Beholder in the Age of Diderot. Drawing on Diderot's aesthetics, Fried argues that whenever a consciousness of viewing exists absorption is sacrificed and theatricality results. As well as applying the distinction to Eighteenth Century painting, he also uses it to assess post-1945 American painting and sculpture, which he values to the extent to which they are liberated from theatricality.
2/10: HANS HAACKE AT REDCAT: 8:30pm
Tuesday, February 10
Hans Haacke with Stephanie Barron and Norman M. Klein
Influential artist and muckraker Hans Haacke has fought for honesty in the political representation of the arts for some 45 years. Now his attention is focused on the widening economic crisis and the slackening of the death-grip of neoliberalism. Haacke is joined by LACMA senior curator Stephanie Barron for a conversation on the cultural rules of engagement, now and in the future, and the place of art at the complex intersection of aesthetic and political discourses. Intellectual historian, media theorist and novelist Norman M. Klein introduces and moderates the discussion. Haacke, who teaches at The Cooper Union, has shown his work at venues around the world, including several editions of Documenta, Skulptur Projekte Münster, and the Venice Biennale.
2/5: ART IN THE PUBLIC SPHERE: USC LECTURE SERIES

Born in Rabat, Morocco in 1937, Alain Badiou was a student at the École supérieure in the 1950s. He taught at the University of Paris VIII (Vincennes-Saint Denis) from 1969 until 1999, when he returned to ENS as the Chaire of the philosophy department. He continues to teach a popular seminar at the Collège International de Philosophie, on topics ranging from the great 'antiphilosophers' (Saint-Paul, Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, Lacan …) to the major conceptual innovations of the twentieth century. Much of Badiou's life has been shaped by his dedication to the consequences of the May 1968 revolt in Paris. Long a leading member of Union des jeunesses communistes de France (marxistes-léninistes), he remains with Sylvain Lazarus and Natacha Michel at the centre of L'Organisation Politique, a post-party organization concerned with direct popular intervention in a wide range of issues (including immigration, labor, and housing).
