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 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
The Adversary (Pratidwandi) (1970), 110 mins.
The first of three films collectively known as "The Calcutta Trilogy" that examine the city of Kolkata's effect on youth and the high price it extracts from them. Stylistically daring and inventive, The Adversary is one of Ray's most politically potent and provocative films.
