Timing is Everything | The Visual Arts Department at UC San Diego:
October 3 - December 6, 2013
We’re pleased to premiere a new fiction called (In)Visible Sites as part of Timing is Everything at the University Art Gallery, UC San Diego. Timing is Everything ”explores the ways that built space situates us in time”. In this exhibition, Joseph Redwood-Martinez’s investigations into the mixed temporalities of the built environment (in text, video, and photo formats) will “house” a rotating series of films from several artists [Charles G. Miller (Oct. 3-17), Hong-An Truong & Dwayne Dixon (Oct. 18-31), Cauleen Smith (Nov. 1-14), and Uriel Orlow (Nov. 15 - Dec. 6)]. These film works offer “epistemological tools with which to examine other instances of architecture and corresponding notions of time, memory, and history”.
Paired with the showing of Chuck Miller’s Hidden in Plain Sight: La Jolla/UTC Annex, An-Edge City (2013), our text will be available in the gallery. Nick and Javier will participate in a couple of public events. Here’s the schedule for those appearances:
Thursday, October 3, 5:30 - 8:30pm
October 3 - 17
Charles G. Miller
Hidden in Plain Sight: La Jolla/UTC Annex, An-Edge City, 2013
Single-channel HD video, 55 min.
Friday, October 4, 10:30am
Breakfast reception and premiere of Hidden in Plain Sight: La Jolla/UTC Annex, An-Edge City
Followed by a conversation with Joseph Redwood-Martinez, Charles G. Miller, & DEMILIT (Javier Arbona & Nick Sowers).
A conversation around urban rumors and anthropology/archaeology of the built environment. Whether “decoding,” “defamiliarizing,” or “giving attention to the overlooked,” their spatial practices converge at the messy locus of ethics in making visible what is not permitted. Whether in San Diego-Tijuana, Petra, Phoenix, Istanbul, Oakland or Quito, how are these questions of visibility navigated in different contexts? How might these obscured forms of the built environment be represented?
Saturday, October 5, 1 - 4:00pm
Detour: La Jolla / UTC, walking with DEMILIT & Charles G. Miller
A collective ambulatory exploration of the political and psychological geography of La Jolla/UTC. The walk attempts to endure and read a landscape that is pedestrian-hostile and sometimes inscrutable. How to navigate and document a corporate landscape? Can misrepresentation and abstraction thereof enable otherwise precluded critical positions? For whom, and how might they be exercised? Participants are welcome to come with audio/visual recording devices to gather and share their findings. This is not a guided tour.
