Posted on October 20, 2017 by School of Art

Exhibition Program - Past ExhibitionsCSULB Illustration alumni Yevgeniya Mikahailik rewarded Best Curator by OC Weekly for her work at the Irvine Fine Arts Center. As the OC Weekly staff said, “Irvine Fine Arts Center’s Mikhailik likes difficult, expressionistic, abstract work. Her exhibitions and choices in artists are never easy or safe; in fact, sometimes it’s just downright puzzling. But her steadfast good taste, trust in an audience she refuses to talk down to, and her championing of female artists equals a class act.” Congratulations Ms. Mikahailik!

CSULB Painting Professor Yu Ji is participating in an exhibition entitled Words in Characters; Books as Vehicle

Posted on October 5, 2017 by School of Art

Yu JiDSCN6598CSULB Painting Professor Yu Ji is participating in an exhibition entitled Words in Characters; Books as Vehicle at the East Asia Library at Stanford University. “Into the Dust” is the artwork in the exhibition and is meant to be an effort to prevent our memory from fading into oblivion. With words written in Chinese Han characters, the book records the Chinese Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) that took place 50 years ago. Its scripts, read vertically from right to left, lay a chronology of a human banality capable of tyranny and inflicting pain to others. As a survivor of this Revolution, Yu Ji attempts to use this work to keep our memories alive, as Mr. Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

Artists whose work is featured in the exhibit include Xu Bing, Hongwei Yang, Xiaoze Xie, Yu Ji, Sue Messer, Xiangzhou Tai, Chen Wang, Jonathan Stalling.  Words in Characters: Books as Vehicles has been organized by the Association of Chinese Artists in American Academia (ACAAA, previously known as Across the Divide), an organization whose goals are to present the work of this unique group of artists to the general public in both the USA and China, and to generate scholarly dialogue among these artists and their students, colleagues, and other academic professionals.

The exhibit will run at the East Asia Library until late January 2018.
