Curated by CSUNâ€™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 FernÃ¡ndez, 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 CSUNâ€™s Art Galleries at (818) 677-2156 or visit www.csun.edu/artgalleries.

Tuesday, September 17 - Friday, July 25 All Day - Oviatt Library, Tseng Gallery
Collective social action movements, whether spontaneous expressions of dissent or high-reaching attempts to change society, have been a part of American life since the nation's earliest days. Protest actions, in the form of boycotts, demonstrations, riots, property destruction, occupations, labor strikes, local activism, or works of art, have spanned the political spectrum, defined generations, and shaped our uniquely American identity.
We invite you to view items from the Oviatt Library's Special Collections and Archives that document dozens of distinct and significant social action movements over the course of the 20th century

Join us for an acoustic evening with two of country music's greatest singer/songwriters, John Anderson and Tracy Lawrence. Anderson made one of the most remarkable comebacks in country music history with the platinum-plus selling release Seminole Wind. He lit up the charts with songs such as "Wild and Blue," "I Just Came Home To Count The Memories," "Swingin'," and "I've Got It Made." Tracy Lawrence's respect for country music tradition has made him one of his genre's cornerstone stylists, with memorable chart toppers "Alibis," "Can't Break it to My Heart," "My Second Home," and "If the Good Die Young." Both will perform heartfelt songs that continue to endear them to their legions of loyal fans.
