Mission: Get Eva and Franco to come to CSULB!!!

by Liz Juarez
Spring Break is here!!!!

Not that i don’t love my classes or helping out in art110 but i am beat. 2 midterms in one day… ouch!

So this week was curating week and as many of you realized, CSULB ran out of prims!!!! unfortunately we cannot have an unlimited number of prims 😦 or else we would have had you all build as much as you’d like but now we have to enforce the 300 prim limit. For every prim over 300, you will lose 1 point. Sorry but it has to be this way.

This week in art110 office hours (which usually consists of a few students), we talked about Eva and Franco attending the “From Appropriation to Infiltration: Accessing Public through Tactical Media”. Unfortunately, it is being held in Boston 😦

We were so close to just ditching that week, getting on a plane to Boston and just stalking Eva and Franco (or in the case of most of us Art 110 girls, just Franco). Turns out tickets are about $300 so unless the Beach Hut wants to sponsor the whole class (and i’ve seen their prices. they can afford it) looks like we won’t be going   😦    Somewhere Mariha Lowe weeps…

Plan B is now to just sacrifice my laptop with any virus the Mattes plan on emailing me and ask them if they can please come to CSULB. I hope they appreciate pleading.

Here are three galleries i found interesting. Doesn’t mean they had the best P8 but that i liked their gallery:

Rachel Bloom

Vanesa Sanchez, Daniel Vidal, Bonnie Sandoval

I loved this gallery because they successfully made media on a prim! Rachel Bloom will be so proud!

Four Yip

Angela Rodarte, Carlos Garcia, Gabriel Garcia

This gallery is so abstract looking and fits Four Yips artwork. I could definitely see Four Yip’s art being displayed in a space like this if this were in the physical world.

Eva and Franco Mattes

Thomas Krebs, Connie Wong, Jose Munoz, Nelson Nguyen

This gallery took all the things that are fun and put them into a gallery form.
