New Langton Arts and the California College of the Arts (CCA) present Downtime: Constructing Leisure, an exhibition that explores our lives off the clock. The eleven international artists in Downtime use photography, film, installation, sculpture and sound to investigate spaces of leisure, looking at the physical and social structures associated with pastimes, tourism and retreat.

The exhibition includes commissions by Bay Area artists Josh Greene and Melinda Stone, as well as the French collective Bureau d’etudes, and West Coast premieres by Luis Jacob and Jonathan Hernandez. A full-color catalog, with three contextual essays, an interview with Dean MacCannell, author of The Tourist (1999), and artists’ pages; complements and documents the exhibition.

New Langton Arts is located at 1246 Folsom Street in San Francisco. For information call 415 626 5416 or visit http://www.newlangtonarts.org

The MA Program in Curatorial Practice at CCA, the first of its kind on the West Coast, was founded in 2003 to provide a training ground for emerging curators tackling the challenges and opportunities of curating contemporary art and culture.
