Wes Modes will be curating a four-month-long summer show (June to September) at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History. He will be creating an exhibition in the large gallery at the MAH that is lively, engaged, and participatory. He plans to bring in contemporary art voices and practices in the form of social practice, participatory, or dialogic art. It is also an opportunity to explore challenging subjects such as social justice, economic disparity, community connectedness, institutional racism, gender inequalities, and the nature of power.
The call is out and applications are due February 22, 2016. Learn all details of the MAH Works Residency at Full Call-Out: http://www.santacruzmah.org/art-works-exhibition-callout/
Wes is also teaching this winter quarter at Hackbright Academy in San Francisco, an all-women coding/programming academy. And in spring quarter, he'll be teaching Art 101 at UCSC, Programming for Artists, the class that he TA'd for Ralph Abraham last year.
