Description

Expanded Collage
Connie Zheng

6 Sessions >> Wednesdays, June 10-July 15
6:30pm-9:30pm, Studio 10, $295

Take your collage work to the next level by experimenting with scale, digital reproduction methods, moving image, and three-dimensional space. Additionally, students will be encouraged to play with large-format paper, mixed media, video, and installation. Lectures will also investigate the historical origins of collage as well as contemporary practitioners using assemblage as a primary visual language.

Connie Zheng is an interdisciplinary artist, writer and experimental filmmaker who was born in China and is currently based out of Oakland, California. Her work is interested in developing new language around ecological apocalypse, diasporic place-making, and the political potentials enabled by fantasy as a means of community-building amidst climate change. She has presented scholarly work at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and exhibited her visual work around the U.S., including the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, the Minnesota Street Project (San Francisco), and AIR Gallery (New York). She is currently a Graduate Fellow at the Headlands Center for the Arts and has also been awarded residencies and fellowships from the Vermont Studio Center (Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Painting fellowship) and ACRE. Her writing has appeared on SFMOMA's Open Space platform and in Art Practical and the Journal of Urban Cultural Studies. She received an MFA in Art Practice from UC Berkeley in 2019 and BAs in Economics and English (Creative Nonfiction) from Brown University in 2010.

FAQs

What materials (if any) will I need to bring to class?
Each course requires specific materials that we ask you bring to your first class session so you can get started making right away. Materials lists are available online on our website here, click on your course title, and then click on the blue "Materials List" link underneath the course dates. If you have any questions regarding materials, please contact Public Education Staff.

What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes, unless otherwise noted, meet at 800 Chestnut Street, between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.

SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9 pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7 pm.

SFAI is easily accessible via public transportation, with Muni bus lines #30 Stockton, #45 Union, and #47 Van Ness located within a few blocks of campus.
