Event Description VAF 306 Performance Space, Visual Arts Facility, UC San Diego // Stemming from MFA student Sam Wohl's graphic novel, JUDAS UNICORN, this play was developed with Professors Deborah Stein, Robert Brill and Robert Castro from UC San Diego Theatre and Dance. The reading will be staged in conspiracy with the talented and prolific theatre group Company 157. Judas Unicorn is an allegory about the struggle to maintain the integrity of being human in a malnourished society and explores themes of violence masked as compassion, the politics of love, and the banality of evil. It holds up a mirror to the world at this moment in our history and asks us to face our own propensity for violence, and instead to cultivate empathy and kindness, even if our sense of identity is obliterated.

Event Description San Diego Mesa College Art Gallery presents Art That Cuts, curated by students in the Museum Studies program under the direction of Professor Alessandra Moctezuma. 30 artists from the Southern California/Tijuana region will show works in diverse media that engage the act of cutting both literally and metaphorically. Works by selected artists range from abstract explorations of material to intimate depictions of the body and landscape. Other artists use humor or engage in cutting political commentary, dealing with issues of the border, gender politics, resistance and solidarity. The show blends these themes into an eclectic mix of views and artistic voices in vibrant conversation revealing connections to local, national and personal issues.

Event Description University Art Gallery, Mandeville Center, UC San Diego // In the Spring, Visual Arts @ 50, our two-year long series of exhibitions marking the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the Visual Arts Department, turns its focus from the past to the future. "The Agency of Art" highlights the role of Visual Arts alumni from the past two decades who are shaping the way art engages with social practice, the environment, science and technology. British social anthropologist Alfred Gell held that “visual art objects are not a part of language ... nor do they constitute an alternative language” and thus should not be treated simply as illustrations or visual texts. Instead he argued that they are tangible indices of social interactions that act as social agents. To conclude the Anniversary series of exhibitions, "The Agency of Art" spotlights how the Visual Arts Department is committed to using art to reshape the world in which we live.
