|07/29/2017||ART + PROCESS + IDEAS (A+P+I) EXHIBITION
June 28-August 27, 2017
OPENING RECEPTION: THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 6:008:00 PM
Mills College Art Museum is pleased to announce the 2017 Art + Process + Ideas (A+P+I) Exhibition on view from June 28-August 27, 2017. Launched in January 2015, A+P+I is an artist-in-residence program hosted by the Mills College Art Department and Mills College Art Museum. The A+P+I residency culminates in a summer exhibition at the Mills College Art Museum, which features new work created by the artists while in residence.
2017 A+P+I exhibition showcases the work of the third round of artists to the programSofía Córdova, Sanaz Mazinani, and Genevieve Quick.
Working with video and sound installations, performance, and sculpture these artists explore questions around futurity, technology, identity, and war through diverse artistic approaches. Through material experiments and performance, Sofía Córdova continues to flesh out the textures and remnants of a world 1500 years in the future premised on the slow ecological decline of earth, the destruction of historical time, and a cultural rebirth for those who remain. Sanaz Mazinani's sound based installations bring together an assemblage of objects and audio clips to consider the de-stabilizing effects of war. Using sourced sounds of explosions in combination with found objects and articles from the Mills collection, Mazinani will create an intimate yet disquieting installation. Genevieve Quick explores the parallels between the deep sea and outer space through a video installation and sculptures. The video chronicles a deep-sea diver and astronaut as they journey below and above our atmosphere where they transform into their avatarsa narwhal and a unicorn.
