ART 113 Students Participate in Davis Art About
The work of undergraduate students in ART 113: Interdisciplinary Art taught by internationally acclaimed artist Shimon Attie, teaching artist in residence for the Manetti Shrem California Studio, will be featured in the 2nd Friday ArtAbout in downtown Davis on May 12. The students’ work is a series of video projections that can be viewed in the Pence Gallery courtyard from approximately 7:45 to 9 p.m.
This public exhibition of the work is the first installment of a project that includes the video installation being displayed on the electronic screens of Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center May 22 (final dates to be determined). Both installations were coordinated through the UC Davis Department of Art and Art History.
Shimon Attie is a multidisciplinary artist who creates site-specific installations in public spaces using video, photography and collaborative processes with local communities. Attie’s art reflects on the relationship between place, memory and identity and explores how contemporary media may be used to re-imagine new relationships between space, time, place and identity. His work has been shown at The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston. He has received fellowships from the John S. Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, the American Academy in Rome, The National Endowment for the Arts, The Pollock-Krasner Foundation and The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University.
2nd Friday ArtAbout takes place on the second Friday of each month, with a handful of businesses taking part. Discover local and regional talent, new artistic styles, and unique creations while experiencing the vibrancy of downtown. Come out with your families and friends to savor art in the Davis community.
