Saturday, February 15 - Saturday, March 29 All Day - Art Gallery (AG)

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 15  4-7 pm

Curator Talk: Monday, February 17  10 am

Panel Discussion with Artists and Catalog Signing: Saturday, March 22 1 pm

Curated by CSUN’s Art History Professor Mario Ontiveros, this exhibition focuses on eight Los Angeles-based artists who reconfigure the genre of self-portraiture. Utilizing their body, their likeness, and/or the intimately personal, the artists encourage an investigation into representation that lingers somewhere between its construction in response to material, psychic, and sociopolitical conditions and those personas that one imagines, shuns and/or desires. Artists include Michael Alvarez, Yreina Cervantez, Christina Fernández, Harry Gamboa Jr., Sandra de la Loza, Shizu Salamando, Ana Serrano and Mario Ybarra Jr. A full color catalog on the exhibition will be available for purchase.

Gallery and gift store hours are Monday through Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m., and on Thursday, from noon to 8 p.m. For more information, call CSUN’s Art Galleries at (818) 677-2156 or visit www.csun.edu/artgalleries.

Second Annual Maurice Amado Foundation Lecture in Jewish Ethics has been cancelled(CANCELLED)Second Annual Maurice Amado Foundation Lecture in Jewish Ethics

7:30 pm - 10:00 pm - Temple Ramast Zion, 17655 Devonshire St., Northridge, CA 91325

“The Good News on Global Violence Reduction, the Bad News on America, and How Interfaith Relations Can Help Shape our Future”

Presented by Professor Marc Gopin

Is violence in America an inevitable part of American life?

Although media reports suggest otherwise, the scientific reality is that violence across the globe has been plummeting in recent decades. Why and how is this happening? Research is showing that our values, attitudes, and thoughts have a great deal to do with our evolution away from violence. Dr. Marc Gopin will help us explore how our practice of and thought about Judaism can affect our global future.

Marc Gopin (Ph.D., Ethics, Brandeis University) is the Director of the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution and the James H. Laue Professor at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia. He was ordained rabbi at Yeshiva University and is the author of five books.

Please call (818) 677-4724 or email jewish.studies@csun.edu to reserve a seat.
