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

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.


Analia Saban – 5pm, October 10, Carpenter Center

Posted on October 4, 2017 by School of Art

saban_xrayAnalia Saban dissects and reconfigures traditional notions of painting, often using the medium of paint as the subject itself. Blurring the lines between painting and sculpture, imagery and objecthood, her work frequently includes plays on art historical references and traditions. Paintings expand to sculptural forms and sculptures are presented in two dimensions, using the process of trial and error with new techniques and technology. Her unconventional methods such as unweaving paintings, laser-burning wood and canvas and molding forms in acrylic paint remain central to her practice as she continues to explore art-making processes and materials in relation to her daily experience. Dealing with issues of fragility, balance, technique and experimentation, Saban’s connection with everyday objects is at the forefront of her investigation of tangible materials and the metaphysical properties of artworks.

Born in 1980 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Saban currently works in Los Angeles and lives in New York City. She received a BFA in Visual Arts from Loyola University in New Orleans in 2001, followed by an MFA in New Genres at the University of California in Los Angeles in 2005.  Saban’s works are represented in the collections of the Hammer Museum at UCLA, Museum of Contemporary Art, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art in Los Angeles; Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College in New York; Norton Museum of Art in Florida; Centre Pompidou in Paris, and Fundación Proa in Buenos Aires, among others.
