03/21/2016 - 'Do Ho Suh' Solo Exhibition At MCASD
This solo exhibition by artist Do Ho Suh features work ranging from large-scale architectural installations and sculptures, to works on paper and video.

Operating within a distinctly twenty-first century global mode, Suh crafts evocative works that reflect ideas of home, identity, and personal space. In his work, Suh draws on his personal experiences growing up in Seoul, South Korea, studying art in the U.S., and moving homes several times over the course of his life. He now lives a global and "nomadic" existence, with homes in New York, London, and Seoul. Inspired by his personal history and biography, the artist's sculptures and installations reveal a range of powerful themes, including notions of public versus private space, global identity, memory, and displacement. At the same time, Suh's works strike viewers with their delicate monumentality, subtle beauty, and intricate construction techniques.

This exhibition will transform MCASD Downtown's Jacobs Building into a maze-like installation that replicates the artist's apartment spaces from a single building in New York City. Created in luminous swaths of translucent fabric, the ghostly rooms and hallways are mysteriously supported by a subtle stainless steel armature. Three combined installations encourage the public to pass through the ephemeral, dreamlike representation of the artist's personal history. In contrast to this bright, airy space, the artist's Specimen Series (2013) is installed in illuminated vitrines in a darkened gallery. These sculptures replicate appliances and fixtures in exacting detail and, like the larger installations, are constructed entirely out of polyester fabric over a stainless steel framework.

Admission/Cost: FREE- $10

04/30/2016 - Sogetsu Ikebana Demonstration
The Art Alive 2016 events continue in grand fashion with a new floral demonstration, led by Kika Shibata, a renowned instructor of Sogetsu Ikebana—the avant-garde form of the Japanese art of flower arranging. The demonstration will be a dazzling spectacle, highlighting the creative freedom of the art form and the relationship between humanity and nature.

Kika Shibata is the Branch Director of the South Bay Branch of Sogetsu San Jose and the Sogetsu North America West Coast Region Coordinator. She teaches ikebana classes throughout the Bay Area, in Sacramento, San Diego, Arizona, and Dallas, Texas.

Sogetsu Ikebana was founded in 1927 by Sofu Teshigahara who concluded that ikebana is a creative art that can take many forms and expressions. His premise was that "anyone can enjoy Sogetsu Ikebana anytime, anywhere, using any material."

04/16/2016 - Talk: An Introduction to Chinese Contemporary Art
Special lecture with Tiffany Wai Ying Beres, Associate Director of SDCHM (San Diego Chinese Historical Museum).

The rapid economic and cultural transformation of China during the past thirty years has created an art scene of unparalleled energy and global impact. Throwing off restrictions on subject matter, embracing a new freedom to experiment, but also preserving and expressing Chinese identity on a monumental scale, contemporary Chinese art has enjoyed an astonishing surge of commercial and critical success.

Associate Director of the SDCHM, Tiffany Wai-Ying Beres, a contemporary art curator who has lived in China for the past decade, will explain the origins of contemporary art in China in the context of the whirlwind changes in the country's social and political environment as well as introduce the oeuvre of some the most important artists living in China today.

Admission/Cost: $5.00 for adults, free for members, children 12 and under, and students with valid ID.

NOTE: Please RSVP by 3:30 PM on Friday (April 15) by calling the museum at (619) 338-9888.

03/21/2016 - Art Exhibit Opening: Do Ho Suh

Celebrate the opening of Do Ho Suh by taking part in a gallery walkthrough led by the curator of the exhibition, Deputy Director, Art and Programs, Kathryn Kanjo.

Do-Ho Suh was born in Seoul, Korea in 1962. Best known for his intricate sculptures that defy conventional notions of scale and site-specificity, Suh's work draws attention to the ways viewers occupy and inhabit public space. Whether addressing the dynamic of personal space versus public space, or exploring the fine line between strength in numbers and homogeneity, Do-Ho Suh's sculptures continually question the identity of the individual in today's increasingly transnational, global society

03/14/2016 - Talk: Woven Gold, Tapestries of Louis XIV
Colorful and glittering tapestries, handwoven after designs by the most renowned artists, were the ultimate expression of status, power, taste, and wealth. As collector, heir, and patron, Louis XIV (r. 1643-1715), vastly augmented the prestigious French royal collection of tapestries. Displayed within his palaces while in residence and in outdoor courtyards on feast days, these monumental hangings embodied and proclaimed his magnificence as the Sun King.

Charissa Bremer-David is Curator of Sculpture and Decorative Arts at the J. Paul Getty Museum. She has written extensively on the Getty Museum's collection of French decorative arts on the 17th and 18th centuries, with a specialization in tapestries and textiles. Mrs. Bremer-David is the curator of Woven Gold: Tapestries of Louis XIV, a major international loan exhibition on view at the Getty Museum from December 15 until May 1, 2016.
