Artist+Process+Ideas (A+P+I) Exhibition 





In January 2015, the Mills College Art Department in partnership with the Mills College Art Museum launched the new artist-in-residence program Art + Process + Ideas (A+P+I).

This six-month residency fosters interdisciplinary collaboration across departments and seeks to expand the dialog around art and art making on campus and throughout the Bay Area.

The Art + Process + Ideas exhibition features new work created while in residence by the inaugural group of artists, Zarouhie Abdalian, Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon, and Weston Teruya.

Working with sound, installation, and sculpture, these artists explore questions around site and materiality through diverse artistic approaches. Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon’s work is devised around audio and spatial feedback systems that manipulate the visitor’s awareness of sound and space. Zarouhie Abdalian creates subtle interventions into everyday perception through minimal installations that engage with the specifics of a particular location. Weston Teruya’s paper sculptures examine the hidden social histories of a site to creatively reimagine how urban landscapes are shaped.

Public Works is an exhibition survey of women artists at work in public spaces featuring works by Amy Balkin, Candy Chang, Minerva Cuevas, Agnes Denes, Karen Finley, Sharon Hayes, Susan O'Malley, Adrian Piper, Bonnie Sherk, Stephanie Syjuco, and Mierle Laderman Ukeles, among others. The exhibition presents documentation, ephemera, and objects from a number of historic and contemporary projects that explore the inherent politics and social conditions of art in public space, in addition to new site-specific commissions, public programs and a publication.

Public Works is curated by Christian Frock, independent curator, and Tanya Zimbardo, Assistant Curator of Media Arts at SFMOMA.

The exhibition is supported in part by the Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation.
