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

SATYAJIT RAY RETROSPECTIVE
Nayak (The Hero) (1966), 120 mins.
From his second original screenplay, Ray's Nayak tells the story of a Bengali matinee idol, who while on a cross-country train journey, ends up revealing all of his personal secrets to a young journalist. A compelling meditation on fame and the fragility of public personas.

The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields is one of the finest chamber orchestras in the world and renowned for its polished and refined sound, rooted in outstanding musicianship. Originally directed by Sir Neville Marriner from the leader's chair, the spirit and flexibility of the conductorless ensemble remains an Academy tradition with the newest appointment of virtuoso violinist Joshua Bell as its new Music Director. Esteemed for its superlative balance as one of the finest and most recorded chamber orchestras of all times, the ensemble continues to transfix audiences with regal musical magnificence.

The Culver Hotel opened in 1924 to headlines in the September 4th Culver City daily news: "City packed with visitors for opening of Culver skyscraper." It has remained a fixture in Culver City for over eighty years, drawing guests from nearby and all over the world.
The long and illustrious past of the Culver is what makes this hotel so endearing and mysterious to the thousands of guests who pass by her walls each year. Legends foster the mystery surrounding the Culver, with sordid tales of mischievous munchkins, secret passageways and high stake poker games that give rise to inquisitive minds and adventurous travelers.
