The year 2021 marks the 50th Anniversary of California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) and the 100th anniversary of its forebear institution, Chouinard. In celebration of this milestone, the Institute will launch 50+50: A Creative Century from Chouinard to CalArts, an unprecedented artist-led scholarship endowment initiative.
CalArts has a long and rich history of graphic designers producing experimental posters for on-campus visiting artists, exhibitions, music, theater, and dance performances (as well as for REDCAT and Machine Project).
The Gallery at REDCAT focuses on experimentation through new commissions that often mark the first major U.S. presentation by the featured artists. Employing temporary structures and dynamic installations, the exhibition formats are flexible and constantly reformulated to allow for a range of spatial and temporary possibilities. Through its annual series of exhibitions, publications, talks and other public programs, the Gallery highlights concepts and critical discourses that connect art with other fields and disciplines.
REDCAT's gallery publishes major monographs and art books on contemporary artists. Starting in 2013, a new series of collected small-format publications will serve as guides for the exhibitions at REDCAT. These publications serve as critical tools that transform the approximation approach to what is presented in the space and as open points of interest that contribute to the constant reinterpretation of the issues addressed.
