Cal Arts Class of 2001, Graduate Exhibition - April 6 to April 21, 2001

Santa Monica - Track 16 Gallery is pleased to announce "Have a Cool Summer! Keep in Touch," an exhibition of thirty Cal Arts MFA graduates, organized by artist and exhibition advisor Sam Durant. "Have a Cool Summer! Keep in Touch" will run from April 6 through April 21, 2001, with an opening reception on Friday, April 6 from 6 - 9 p.m.

If a gallery is the ultimate destination for a young artist, then these MFA candidates are well on their way, even before their May 2001 graduation, as they exhibit their work in "Have a Cool Summer! Keep in Touch." The exhibition collectively situates these student artists in a unique position to be widely viewed prior to their commencement. Their work offers a comprehensive insight into not only the direction of graduate student art practice, but also into the critical transition from the co-operative environment they have shared to the more isolated creative experience that may lie ahead.

"Have a Cool Summer! Keep In Touch" will feature a diverse array of working styles including Internet art, painting, photography, and site-specific installation. The thirty artists included in the exhibition are: Eduardo Abaroa, Suzanne Adelman, Nicole Antebi, Edgar Arceneaux, Cara Baldwin, Scott Benzel, Todd Bourret, Ed Coolidge, Mario Correa, Zoe Crosher, Cathy Davies, Allison Healy, Marc Herbst, Sung Chul Hong, Grace Kim, Jeff Kopp, Olga Koumondouros, Jen Liu, Isabelle Lutterodt, Joshua Mittleman, Dwayne Moser, Justin Peloian, David Reed, Brenda Regier, Irene Roderick, Pia Rönicke, Ji Cheol Shin, Michelle Sinigayan, Nathaniel Udell, Natalie Zimmerman.

Opening Reception:
Friday, April 6 from 6 - 9 p.m.
