Prof. Gray also is in the group show Michael Jackson: On the Wall at the National Portrait Gallery in London. This landmark exhibition explores the influence of Michael Jackson on some of the leading names in contemporary art, spanning several generations of artists across all media, including Gray’s work as Michael Jackson’s first official photographer. Curated by Dr Nicholas Cullinan, Director of the National Portrait Gallery, the exhibition will open June 28, 2018 and will coincide with what would have been Michael Jackson’s 60th birthday (on August 29, 2018). Congratulations Professor Gray!

Posted on June 15, 2018 by School of Art

WYPBRVFXBJDHRJAOHLAGFTRAAMCSULB Sculpture Professor Katie Grinnan has a solo exhibition at Commonwealth and Council entitled Electric Data Wave Seranade. The exhibition cuts across bodies and land, from Death Valley earth to human bodies performing across the landscape to the realm of dreamscapes and sleep data. In a review by the Los Angeles Times, David Pagel writes, “Women’s bodies and nature have long been linked in art. In a brilliant two-gallery exhibition at Commonwealth and Council, Katie Grinnan suggests it’s high time we start thinking of nature in terms of women’s minds.” The exhibition runs from May 12 through June 23, 2018. Congratulations Professor Grinnan!
