We are elated to share news that Ian van Coller was just awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship for his ongoing series, Naturalists of the Long Now. This prestigious award is earmarked for established artists who "add to the educational, literary, artistic, and scientific power of this country [and provide] better international understanding."
Our artists have had banner-years with more milestone success in 2017 than any other year to date: Tatiana Parcero was part of the Getty initiative, Pacific Standard Time; Ian van Coller's work is now on view at the MET; Jennifer Greenburg's work was acquired by MOCA Tucson and Paul Turounet's work exhibited there; and Matt Eich released another monograph and exhibited at MoCA Cleveland; to name a few highlights.Read More
We’re excited to announce that the artist book, The Last Glacier, created by Bruce Crownover, Todd Anderson, and Ian Van Coller is now on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The book was acquired by the Met in 2016, and is on view as part of Drawings and Prints: Selections from The MET Collection, in gallery 690, and is one of several pieces that address “…works by contemporary artists that deal with the environment, both natural and man-made, often in the face of rapidly shifting conditions.”Read More

Paul Turounet is interested in storytelling, perspective, and the space between places, emotions, or states; the tension in his work often emerges from the gaps exposed. Estamos Buscando A (We're Looking For) is a photo-driven installation that examines the psychology of the US|MX border. It is composed of recovered border wall, intimate portraits of migrants on metal plates that the Artist calls retablos, sand, dirt, and found objects such as backpacks and tire-drags.Read More

We are happy to share this interview with Director Jennifer DeCarlo and a San Diego-based podcast, Keep the Channel Open. The audio-document is one in a growing series of ongoing interviews lead by Mike Mike Sakasegawa. The podcast is fairly new, but proving a poignant and thoughtful contribution to the budding San Diego art scene.
We are thrilled to share news that four more major works by Tatiana Parcero were accepted into the permanent collection of the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León (MUSAC). Located in León, Spain MUSAC is dedicated to being "a museum of the present," and only collects work by a living generation of artists (1992 - 2012).Read More

We are happy to share the following excerpt of an editorial by Susan Burnstine:
When Greenburg adorns herself in one of her many vintage outfits, she admits she feels glamorous. 'I am not a person with problems anymore. I become someone else - someone else who only exists in photographs. Yet, that person - that icon of a person - is something the photograph made up. She is someone without strife, someone without obstacles. We believe so deeply in the truth of "her" that we measure ourselves against what we think we see in the picture. And when we cannot measure up, we then begin to blame the times we live in. Some say, "Oh, people used to be more civilized back then." This is in fact not true. We revise our past, that includes inequality, racism, misogyny and numerous other hardships we conveniently forget.'
