Six students will show a diverse array of work, all united by one single important fact: they have stories to tell. Stories about the counter-culture in the nineteen seventies, stories about the muddled histories of a beloved secondhand car, a meditation on the last walk of Virginia Woolf, stories about time, tides and archaeology along the Thames Estuary, infinite refigurings of the passage of light across materials and emulsions, and then finally the strange stories that are woven through the imaginary archive of an obsessive meteor-hunter. But at the heart of each of these very different creative practices is the fundamental enigma of that moment when the photograph breaks into the world, fragments it and reveals its complexity; offering us up not words to make sentences with but objects to imagine with – ‘mythopoesis’.

Jess T. Dugan: Every breath we drew
September 5 – October 11

Artists’ reception:
Friday September 5th , 2014: 5:30 – 8pm

Every breath we drew represents the continued exploration of identity through the queer experience. As Sander’s People of the 20th Century asks the viewer to question identity through social structure and employment, Every breath we drew asks us to take identity to the next level and to consider the connections between one’s private identity and the multiplicity of today’s gender definitions – no longer just two genders but a society of endless variations.

Art to Zoo: Exploring Animal Natures @ Santa Barbara Museum of Art

Art to Zoo: Exploring Animal Natures
September 28, 2014 – January 4, 2015

Photographers in Art to Zoo reveal the complex, thoughtful, and often elegant ways in which animals touch, see, and hear the world. Using non-invasive imaging techniques, scientists and animal behaviorists are finding irrefutable evidence that other species know vastly more than heretofore thought. The ancient Greeks had a class of animals that were semi-divine; the Egyptians worshipped animal deities; the pre-Columbians, a feathered serpent. Animals throughout human history have been revered and reviled, treasured and feared, yet little has been established as scientific fact until relatively recently. Throughout this macro to micro look at the animal world, the belief in overall human superiority is proved suspect, if not arrogant.

KATRIN KORFMANN ENSEMBLES ASSEMBLED
SEPTEMBER 13 – OCTOBER 18, 2014

RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 5-8PM

Korfmann’s work is characterised by the bird’s-eye view perspective from which people are photographed moving in the scene below, capturing them in static images that present an abstract of human interaction: strongly aesthetic, its dynamic bound by the grid of everyday life.
