Material Witness

Where and When

Sat, 25 May 2024 - Sun, 11 Aug 2024


City Gallery, City College, 1508 C Street, San Diego, CA, 92101



This exhibition features four designer/craftspeople, based in the borderlands, whose creative practices uniquely spotlight the transformational and narrative potential of their materials, capturing fleeting moments in time. Inspired by the elemental nature of their subject and the influence of their surroundings, the work in this exhibition demonstrates the importance and potency of deep material knowledge, and the ways in which material can connect directly to the environments from which they came. Material Witness explores sustainable and environmentally-conscious strategies for object making, pointing to relevant and timely issues of natural resource use and management, land occupation, nostalgia, and escapism.

May 25th- 6:00 – 8:00 pm exhibition opening
