W/ PREUSS HIGH SCHOOL   (special exhibition in Classroom)

 

SPACE 4 ART presents Incomplete Survey, an exhibition of works by students of local colleges and universities including San Diego State University, University of San Diego, University of California San Diego, Autonomous University of Baja California, and Point Loma Nazarene University, will open June 8, 2013 and continue through the month during regular gallery hours.

The exhibition features a variety of media from painting to video to installation, and a repurposed mobile art gallery truck (also a student work) mixing “high” and “low” ideas of art. Not a topical exhibit, but a starting point for connections between diverse works, the show reflects the choice and variety of ideas artists respond to in a contemporary context. However, several themes surface. The mark of the hand is highlighted, whether through a worn, repeatedly used object or controlled detail of a delicate sculpture. Similarly, tactility comes to the fore, asking the audience to touch an immense bubbling cork wall, or a rack of embroidered shirts. The idea of labor is evident, again with the soft but painstaking work of needlework, also contrasting with images and objects of agriculture. The playful use of sexuality in several works makes pleasure in the work more complex. Incomplete Survey brings young artists together from too often disconnected institutions in the area to find, from their heterogeneity, a starting point from which to imagine future of art in our region.
