Art Gallery Events

The University Art Gallery is one of the major exhibition spaces in the South Bay area; it is a valuable resource for the Art and Design Department, the University, and the Los Angeles artistic community. The gallery presents six to ten exhibitions per academic year, including a series of student showcases in Design and Studio Art, that explore different artistic styles, cultures, historical periods, social movements, and media.The gallery schedule culminates in the two senior student art exhibitions in Design and Studio Art. It is an integral educational tool, providing tours to classes, community groups and school groups, and further it gives an opportunity for faculty, students and interns to participate in curating gallery exhibitions, designing installations and learning arts management. With over 2,000 square feet in exhibition space and 18’ high ceilings, this exciting space is easily accessible and therefore a perfect venue for forums, student art critique classes, discussions with artists, and guest lecture events.

Be the Change, a photography exhibition featuring timely and incisive protest photographs by California photographer Cindy Bendat, will open on Monday, September 11, and continue through October 10, 2017. Bendat’s protest photographs range from the Anti-war/Anti-Bush protests in 2003 to the Occupy movement in 2011 to the Women’s March and Anti-Trump protests held in January 2017. Her photographs reveal the visual power of people taking action in major protest movements in Los Angeles, including those concerning Immigrant rights, the Occupy movement, Black Lives Matter, Arab Spring, Burma freedom, Anti-Iraq war/peace, Labor unions and worker solidarity, and the Women’s March. Bendat is a cultural, documentary and fine art photographer based in Santa Monica, California. She has photographed all over the world, and she has a diverse portfolio of work of people, places, and festivals. In addition to her work abroad, Bendat photographs diverse cultures and subcultures in Los Angeles, cultural festivals in the greater Los Angeles area, and political protests. Her work was recently featured in the 2016 solo exhibition at the Fowler Museum at UCLA entitled Celebrate/Demonstrate: Photographs of Global L.A. Interested in both culture and politics, she is committed to creating art with relevancy and social impact, as seen in this exhibit with its photographs of community engagement and individual activism. Her award-winning images have been exhibited in galleries and art fairs in the United States and abroad. Her work has also been published in books, magazines, and newspapers, and it is in the permanent collections of The Huntington Library, Yale University, and the City of Santa Monica.
