UCSD’s Visual Arts Department to present works of the past 50 years

As part of the 50th anniversary of the founding of UCSD, the Division of Arts and Humanities will host an exhibit celebrating its Visual Arts Department from March 4 to June 6. “Cross-Disciplinary Productions,” curated by Tatiana Sizonenko, a Ph.D. candidate in art history, will present a survey of works by faculty, alumni and MFA students.

The exhibition pre-view reception will include a lecture with artist/critic/theorist Allan Sekula (UCSD/MFA 1974) and historian/critic/curator Moira Roth (Professor at UCSD 1974-85) who will discuss the history of UCSD MFA program and their own work at 2 p.m. March 4 in the Visual Arts Facility performance space.

Following the talk, there will be an exhibition viewing with the curator at 4 p.m. in the Literature Building. The Visual Arts Department is at

9500 Gilman Dr. For directions to events, call (858) 534-2860.

VAD was founded on the principle that art production, art theory and criticism, and art history are inter-related practices that together constitute the culture of art. This exhibition investigates the various ways the department’s distinctive commitment to the theoretical framework of art was put into practice and whether or not its philosophy constitutes a tradition in the contemporary world.

Participating artists include David Antin, David Avalos, Rebecca Baron, Doris Bittar, Harold Cohen, Joyce Cutler Shaw, Joelle Dietrick, Steve Fagin, Manny Farber, Katie Herzog, Louis Hock, Allan Kaprow, Christopher Kardambikis, Jeff Kelley, Hung Liu, Fred Lonidier, Simone Lueck, Kim MacConnel, Babette Magnolte, Owen Mundy, Ryuta Nakajama, Leslie Nemour, Mark Oliver, Sheryl Oring, Patricia Patterson, Jerome Rothenberg, Italo Scanga, Louis Schmidt, Ernest Silva, Brianna Rigg, Perry Vasquez, Yvonne Venegas, Andrew West, and Minori Yata.
