Radical Teaching Artists: Fresh Ideas and New Perspectives
Southern Exposure
June 22, 2011 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

A Salon Discussion Featuring
JD Beltran
Amanda Eicher
Jerome Reyes
Malik Seneferu
Wendy Testu

Organized by Tara Foley, SoEx’s Artists in Education Program Manager.

The arts may be struggling from the lack of funding and support, but
teaching artists are still generating inventive and inspiring projects
that often get over looked.

Questions that will be considered include: How can political and social
issues be addressed and integrated into art curriculums? In what ways can
experiences with art open up new possibilities for curiosity, learning and
community engagement? How can we give students the space to explore and
question while also meeting the demands of the current educational climate?
How do teaching artists integrate their own practices into their teaching?
How are artist educators modeling, or remodeling, healthy and vibrant
teaching methodologies?

Join Southern Exposure for salon discussion featuring local teaching artists
as they discuss these questions and share their projects with us.

On the Ground
Southern Exposure Gallery
San Francisco
March 11, 2011 – April 23, 2011
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, March 11, 2011 7:00 – 9:00 pm

Artists: Taha Belal, Gaye Chan, Sofia Cordova, Sergio De La Torre,
Malak Helmy, Juan Luna-Avin, Jerome Reyes, Rene Yung

On the Ground is curated by SoEx Curatorial Committee member, Weston Teruya.
On the Ground presents new work arising from artists’ relationship to particular localities.

San Francisco. O’ahu. Cairo. The North coast of Egypt. Tijuana. Puerto Rico and its
diaspora. Mexico City, Puebla, Monterrey and Queretaro. The artists in On the Ground
build from the specific codes and nuances of these places, creating their own narratives
and gestures that begin to reveal or reimagine their communities. Whether through
community engagement, historical research, musical performance or language, each
artist delves into a specific facet of a site’s cultural structure. While each artist has taken
his or her own approach to interpreting and dissecting a locality, all of their projects emerge
from an honest reflection on the terms and textures of their respective sites. From the
particularities of each community, they help to build a sense of differences and shared
dynamics globally and locally.
