A series of public programs will occur over the course of the exhibition, both inside and outside of the gallery. These will include a screening of James Benning’s film One Way Boogie-Woogie / 27 Years Later on May 18 from 7-10 p.m. and events with participating artists Sandra Nakamura and Red76.

The exhibition catalog features interviews with each of the artists; a project by Matthew Rana, a student in CCA’s Graduate Program in Visual and Critical Studies; and texts by the local poet Jasper Bernes and the writers Erica Levin and Daniel Marcus. The publication is available from the Wattis bookstore and online as a free, downloadable PDF at

About the Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice
Founded in 2003, CCA’s Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice offers an expanded perspective on curating contemporary art and culture. Alongside traditional forms of exhibition making, this two-year master’s degree program emphasizes the momentous impact over the last half-century of artist-led initiatives, public art projects, site-specific commissions, and other experimental endeavors that take place beyond the confines of established venues. It is distinguished by an international, interdisciplinary perspective, and it reflects San Francisco’s unique location and cultural history by placing a particular importance on the study of curatorial and artistic practices in Asia and Latin America.

About the CCA Wattis Institute
The Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts was established in 1998 in San Francisco at California College of the Arts. It serves as a forum for the presentation and discussion of international contemporary art and curatorial practice. Through groundbreaking exhibitions, the Capp Street Project residency program, lectures, symposia, and publications, the Wattis Institute has become one of the leading art institutions in the United States and an active site for contemporary culture in the Bay Area.
