Transitional Objects, a group art exhibition featuring the works of CalArts graduate students from the 2021 Center for Integrated Media (CIM) and the Art and Technology Program, is now on view at the George J. Doizaki Gallery at the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center (JACCC) in downtown Los Angeles through Sunday, May 16.
Collectively, the multimedia work addresses the “interplay between technological turbulence and accelerated becoming.”
From the CIM:
These sixteen artists from CalArts have demonstrated incredible resilience during their recent moments of personal isolation, and social constriction. In spite of the abrupt temporal disruptions to their lives, they have persevered by making extraordinary work that interrogates the complexities of our twenty first century with all its challenges and contradictions. Together, their work functions as a collective oracle, a virtual device that imagines future possibilities. However, this articulation does not predict a simple future, rather, it provokes an array of complexity by initiating critical discussions of identity, gender, surveillance, trauma, memory and time. They are tentacular investigations of automation, machine learning, sound, image and space–– multimodal markings of the many voices and diverse personas that constitute our networked yet fractured world.
The CalArts graduate students participating in Transitional Objects are: Fia Benitez Villanueva, Caleb Craig, Jing Dong, Brin Gordon, Brian Griffith, Tatum Howey, Zachary Kenefick, Sunny Kim, Ziyin Li, Dongpu Ling, Dylan Marx, Shan Ni, Matthew Pagoaga, Autumn Rogers, Kensaku Shinohara, and Gary Zhang
The exhibition is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday, from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on visiting protocols.
