Fog Inquiry: Wandering Seminar by Artist Collective Futurefarmers

Various locations and bus stops on campus

Founded in 1995 by Amy Franceschini, Futurefarmers is an international collective of artists and diverse practitioners. Their critically acclaimed, socially engaged, and site specific projects take place in and around art institutions, universities, sailing vessels, farmlands, kitchens, and other community settings. For Fog Inquiry: Wandering Seminar, Futurefarmers has created a series of thematic gatherings with collaborators including including feminist theorist Karen Barad, cosmologist Alexei Leauthaud, eco-sexual artists Annie Sprinkle and Elizabeth Stephens, atmospheric chemist Peter Weiss, theater director Marianne Weems, artist Tristan Duke, and other artists and thinkers. The regional atmospheric phenomena of fog that can pervade the campus serves as the theme for these gatherings, with an emphasis on seeing, sensing, and knowing within uncertain and misty conditions. In the current hazy socio-political climate, Wandering Seminar intends to trouble the atmospheric conditions impacting knowledge production.

When We Paint Our Masterpiece: The Art of the Grateful Dead Community

McHenry Library, Brittingham Dead Central Gallery, Main Level

This newest exhibit featuring unique materials from the Grateful Dead Archive will explore how the members of the band and the global Dead Head community took inspiration from one another in creating an image-rich, worldwide art practice that, like the band’s music, scrambled perceived standards and norms. The creative works presented in When We Paint Our Masterpiece reveal a world full of variety when it comes to design practices, international traditions, visual icons, and art forms. There has been space for all of these patterns and visions in the community of fans and fellow artists that blossomed around the band, and that community of creators continues to thrive today. This exhibit explores the mutual appreciation among fans as well as between fans and the band. On view through 2020.This free exhibit is open to the public during McHenry Library hours.(artwork by Miki Saito)

“Archival Research as Penance”: The Papers and Library of Hayden V. White

McHenry Library, Special Collections & Archives Reading Room

Drawing on Hayden White’s newly available archive, this exhibit traces various sites of his intellectual work, teaching, and activism. Materials document his foundational role in building UC Santa Cruz’s pathbreaking History of Consciousness program, his powerful challenges to prevailing ideas of historical interpretation, and his part in a landmark legal ruling in favor of the civil rights of students in the United States which he regarded as one of his proudest accomplishments. In mapping the times and spaces where White elaborated his ideas, Archival Research as Penance invites others to think with him. Curated by Christian Alvarado and Patrick King, 2019-2020 Fellows in the Elisabeth Remak-Honnef Center for Archival Research and Training. Special Collections & Archives is grateful to Margaret Brose, whose generous donation of Hayden White’s archive to the University Library has made this exhibit possible.

Open to the public during Special Collections & Archives Reading Room hours (generally Mon-Fri, 10:00am-Noon and 1:00pm-4:00pm).

Future Garden Art & Science Exhibition

Arboretum

A major art and science project by Newton Harrison and his late wife and lifelong collaborator Helen Mayer Harrison, Future Garden, is now on view at the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum and Botanic Garden. Internationally renowned eco-artists and UC Santa Cruz emeritus faculty, the Harrisons created a site-specific environmental art installation in the three geodesic domes and the surrounding garden at the Arboretum. Called Future Garden for the Central Coast of California, the installation, which Newton Harrison continues to evolve, transforms the newly refurbished domes at the Arboretum from relics of the past, steeped in 1970s era charm, into carriers of the future in response to the crisis of climate change. The Harrisons worked with scientists at UC Santa Cruz and botanists at the Arboretum, along with other artists, scientists, and visionaries, to create trial gardens within the domes in which native plant species are subjected to the temperatures and water conditions that scientists see for the region in the near future. The aim is to determine which plants are best able to thrive as the region warms and to propagate these species to create the scaffolding for more rapid regeneration of the local ecosystem as climates shift. As the Harrisons explained, the future for the rapidly warming planet lies in finding durable plant species that together create ecosystems that can continue to live and flourish as temperature increases. The geodesic domes of the Arboretum provide the perfect setting for imagining a future in the face of climate change. With their new gleaming white coverings, the ... Read More

Solitary Garden Public Sculpture and Garden Project

Baskin Art Studios

The Institute of the Arts is Sciences is proud to present the participatory public sculpture and garden project Solitary Garden, by jackie sumell, November 5, 2019- December 6, 2020, located at the Baskin Art Studios. Solitary Garden features a sculpture made following the blueprint of a standard U.S. solitary confinement cell. Around the 6’ x 9’ cell grows a garden of flowers and vegetables, designed by Tim Young, currently incarcerated in San Quentin, and communicated via letters and drawings to the students and volunteers who are planting and tending the garden as his proxies. The intent of the project, as the artist and Tim Young explain, is to "imagine a landscape without prisons." Solitary Garden is part of Barring Freedom, a multi-faceted, 18-month project which includes exhibitions of art, events and workshops, and a multi-day symposium at UC Santa Cruz, “Visualizing Prison Abolition,” October 15-17, 2020. Barring Freedom brings together artists, activists, and scholars to imagine alternatives to our fundamentally flawed criminal justice system and to galvanize a broader public to address the broken promise of freedom and justice for all in the United States.

Directed by Janey Holm, Katy Meeks, Leilani Westman UCSC’s annual student dance production, Random With A Purpose, is a collaboratively student-run and student-created dance production. For 27 years, Random has provided students with the opportunity to choreograph, dance in, and produce a collective performance. In its 28th year, the theme Prism focuses on seeking out camouflaged perspectives and harmonizing various lenses of reality.

Qiensave + Valley Wolf

Moe's Alley 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz

Moe's Alley presents a Cumbia/Latin double bill dance party with Qiensave + Valley Wolf. ABOUT QIENSAVE - ¿Qiensave? is a Cumbia Urbana group from Salinas California with their roots stretching back to Michoacán, Mexico. They create high energy dance music that has fortunately blessed them with the opportunity to travel throughout California, Arizona, Mexico, and Colombia. ABOUT VALLEY WOLF - Made up of ex-mariachi charros, the up-and-coming Latinx troupe surfaced with fuzzy soul and Mexican garage psych with a drizzle of cumbias by way of Modesto, CA . Swirling organs, heavy drums and guitar underscore the songs. Vocally, Jairo Lomeli’s lyrics address socio-political currents of modern Chicanx culture. Songs like “La Perdida” and “Mordidas” resonate of any Latin mother’s Saturday morning cleaning playlist along with other energetic tracks like “Electric Melon” and the cumbia-esque “Bananana,” which will make your peers wonder if you’re a rocker foo or a cumbiero. In October of 2018, Valley Wolf released their self-titled EP engineered by Eduardo Arenas of Chicano Batman.

In the music industry, he is known as the reggae artist Collie Buddz. Buddz was born on August 21, 1984 in New Orleans, Louisiana. After graduating from high school, he attended Full Sail University in Orlando, FL, where he decided to study studio engineering. Upon graduating from college in 2006, Buddz began looking for work in the recording industry as a performer or producer. One of his first major gigs was working with recording star Shaggy on the single "Mad Mad World" from Shaggy's new album entitled Intoxication, which was release in 2007. That was the same year he released his self-titled debut album with Sony Music. The album was a moderate success, but well-received by critics. WWE (World Wrestling Enterprises) fans would immediately recognize Buddz's voice from the entrance theme ("SOS") for WWE superstar wrestler Kofi Kingston, which was included on the 2008 compilation WWE The Music, Vol. 8. Over the next year, he would continue making guest appearances on the works of other artists. It is no small coincidence that his stage name "Buddz" is slang for marijuana.
