Otis MFA Public Practice 1st Year Project
Exhibition & Residency:
April 18 – May 21, 2016

OTIS Graduate Public Practice students will present artistic explorations of the history and community of Santa Monica 90404, created under the direction of faculty member Anuradha Vikram, 18th Street Arts Center’s Artistic Director. These five artists have developed projects based on research into local community sites of interest including small businesses, cultural sites, and non-profits, with the support of 18th Street’s Cultural Asset Map, a working document that will be developed into a tool for public engagement through prolonged, community-based, and site-specific research. Working with representatives of Santa Monica’s longstanding resident communities, including some who have been displaced and others who have recently arrived, the artists envision a space of intellectual and metaphysical connection where social relationships can be rebuilt from the shattered remnants of gentrification.
