Highlights from the CSUF Faculty show
The 2015 faculty exhibition opened tonight at Cal State Fullerton’s Begovich Gallery (a chance, perhaps, for students to grade the teachers). Fine artists in the show include Julie Orser, Joe Biel and Joe Forkan. Rebecca Campbell fills an oven with classic paperback literature in Liebe Mütti (courtesy of LA Louver), presumably to be cooked until done at 451° Fahrenheit. Jim Jenkins supplies a kinetic sculpture consisting of school chairs, dunce cap, globe and paper airplane entitled I Ain’t Much for Book Learnin’ and John Leighton holds the floor with his evocative sculpture Burden.
The faculty show runs April 11 through May 16. Pictures from the opening are below.
Coincident with the faculty show, graduating students James Doyle, Marta Peña, Pamela Rush and Phoebe Yuan exhibited their immersive installation “Getting to Know You” in the adjacent gallery. In a dimly-lit young woman’s bedroom we witness details of a private life, both intimate and mundane, posted on the walls in Helvetica type. These data points are connected by an interlocking diagram of multicolored lines as the piece explores issues of privacy versus social networking in a young person’s life. “Getting to Know You,” in the Marilyn and Cline Duff Gallery, was on view April 6 through April 11.
