January Show, Main Gallery, CalArts, Valencia, CA, USA, 2014

I was given a gallery space called “Main Gallery” in CalArts as a space to make my first year show. I asked a Graphic Design graduate student to use the space however he wanted and I assisted with institutional paperwork and validations. It ended up becoming collaborative in terms of installing and selecting materials, however, my intention was to reveal all institutional distinctions, processes and limits through offering the space to someone who was not given the gallery spaces. I took care of not only the paperwork needed to approve its security and feasibility but also the critiques and reviews of the work and the show including discussing the institutional settings that I discovered through the process.
