The Agency Of Art

The Agency of Art
Exhibit: April 12 - May 17, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, 12 April, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Thursday, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Featuring several emerging and mid-career grads alongside established peers, "The Agency of Art" showcases the unique history of UC San Diego as a destination for artists working with expanded media art practices, innovative new media, speculative design practices and public policy.

Previous exhibitions in the Visual Arts @ 50 series have not explored in depth the theme of New Technologies and Design; this latest show will underscore the important role of the department in opening up such artistic strands regionally and nationally. The exhibition will be accompanied by events highlighting the contributions of art to interdisciplinary research on equity, diversity and inclusion, as well as the environment and the promises and challenges of new technology.

Participating Artists:
- Professor Emeritus Helen Mayer and Newton Harrison
- Visual Arts Alumni: Sadie Barnette, Roman de Salvo, Rob Duarte, Katie Herzog, Nina Karavasiles, Jean Lowe, Virginia Maksymowicz, Heather Gwen Martin, Roy McMakin, Jessie Mockrin, Owen Mundy, Tim Nohe, Sheryl Oring, Tim Schwartz, Igor Vamos, Nina Waisman, Ruth Wallen and Allison Wiese.

Location: University Art Gallery, Mandeville Center, UC San Diego
