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, and Daniela Delgadillo Garcia
Exhibition: January 25–March 7, 2020
Opening Reception: Saturday, February 1, 4–6 p.m.
Location: Gallery 1

Employing photography, painting, sculpture, and sound-based artworks, the artists featured in A Trace is Not a Map build bridges between viewer and spectator – insider and passersby. Their work explores the complexity of community and family, resisting oversimplifications about identity in favor of presenting a nuanced spectrum of experience and being.
