March 9, 2011: Joel Tauber — Installation Artist and Filmmaker

Posted on March 1, 2011 by School of Art

Joel Tauber received his MFA from Art Center College of Design and his BA from Yale University. His work has been featured in the 2004 and 2008 California Biennials, Orange County Museum of Art; in “No Matter. Failure and Art”, Kunstverein Hildesheim, Germany; in “Love is Like Oxygen”, W139, Amsterdam, Netherlands. Film Festivals include the San Francisco Documentary Festival, the Hartford International Film Festival, and the Downtown Film Festival – Los Angeles, where his movie, “Sick-Amour”, was awarded “Best Green Film.” Tauber won the 2007 Contemporary Collectors of Orange County Fellowship and the 2007-2008 CalArts / Alpert Ucross Residency Prize for Visual Arts. Tauber’s recent solo exhibition at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, “Pumping” is an investigation of the early history of trains in Los Angeles and that history’s intersection with water and oil resources. Throughout the project, Joel Tauber ponders the fragility and temporality of the city’s foundation.
