In preparation for SDAI curator-in-residence Amanda Cachia’s exhibition, “Sweet Gongs Vibrating,” SDAI has opened our Horton Plaza Project Space to artist Aren Skalman to use as an open studio/laboratory and weekly workshop space. These experimental workshops encourage artists and non-artists; members of the Blind Community Center of San Diego; and mall window shoppers to create multi-media, multisensory artworks.
SDAI presents Best in Show: a multimedia exhibition devoted to the feline (and canine) purr-suasions. The exhibition is juried by Jason Eppink; curator of Digital Media at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City. The opening will feature the musical stylings of everybody’s favorite feline-inspired band: Lion Cut!
You know how you’ve been considering adding a furry family member to your clan? Well, with dozens of unclaimed quadrupeds out there and the weight of all those resolutions that have fallen by the waistline—we mean wayside—now is a perfect time to get out there and open your home to an eager canine mate.
SDAI welcomes Los Angeles-based author and photographer Dr. Paul Koudounaris, who will deliver his lecture Ship Cats: Adventure! Courage! Betrayal!
