From Here to There: A Time Machine

Artists: Michael Chang and Susan Lin
Exhibition: January 25–March 7, 2020
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 1, 4–6 p.m.
Location: Gallery 1

From Here to There: A Time Machine presents new collaborative multimedia works by Michael Chang and Susan Lin that explore notions of ancestry, cultural time, and the precariousness of memory. Using the entirety of Gallery 1 of the Irvine Fine Arts Center, the artists create an immersive environment that couples technologies of the past — ripe nostalgic and aspirational undertones — with videos and images that function as anecdotes about longing for a sense of home and the tension between familial and cultural myths and realities.

A trace is not a map

Artists: Adriana Baltazar, William Camargo, Daniela Delgadillo Garcia, and Albert Lopez, Jr.
Exhibition: January 25–March 7, 2020
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 1, 4–6 p.m.
Location: Gallery 2 and Main Gallery

The artists featured in A trace is not a map employ photography, painting, video, and sculpture to explore the complexity of community in its familial, geographic, and imagined narratives and forms. Attending to the symbiotic relationship between hope and loss, joy and struggle, and illusion and disillusionment, the works on view resist oversimplifications about identity—instead presenting a spectrum of experience and possibilities of being.
