Dax Gallery in Costa Mesa presents Body of the Palace, an art exhibit featuring work by The Stuff, a growing collective of CalArts alumni. Running from Sept. 27 through Oct. 21, Body of the Palace is a tribute to the artists' late professor Michael E. Mitchell and a classroom at CalArts.
More from the press release:
For many of the CalArts alumni, The Palace was a room where they had epiphanies that dramatically changed their perspective. The group witnessed, contributed, collaborated, and/or inspired this change in themselves. Because they shared this very intense time at the same place, they have a deep understanding and respect for each other. Creating abstract forms, shapes and using vibrant colors, they interpret personal journeys in their lives by telling an open-ended story where the audience can fill in the blanks.
Artists in the exhibit are:
- Samir "Evol" Argandiwall (Film/Video BFA 06)
- Jeremy Bernstein (Film/Video BFA 03)
- Tony Caropino (Film/Video 07)
- Dave Creek (Film/Video BFA 05)
- Linda Dorn (Film Video MFA 02)
- Jon Gomez (Film/Video BFA 07)
- Nick Jeong (Film/Video BFA 04)
- Morgan Kelly (Film/Video BFA 03)
- JR Smith (Film/Video BFA 05)
