OCA tutor, Curator and Visual Artist, Diana Ali in collaboration with Santa Ana College Art Gallery and Director, Phil Marquez, is pleased to present the exhibition ‘Loss & Lucidity’ an exhibition of contemporary artwork investigating the misplaced, the missed and the mended.
The exhibition explores what it is to lose something, someone, some direction and some sense of self. But is it so bad to be a flaneur, flaneuse, in wanderlust, in terra incognita, a nomad, a shaman, a drifter?
A fantastic array of international artists come together in one space to find lucidity in that loss including OCA’s very own Michele Whiting. Through various retrieval methodologies the artists explore navigational strategies, emotional celibacy, memories, reinvention, survival skills and escapism. Work exhibited include film, animation, photography, installations, drawings, paintings and sculpture to keep hold of old ties, retrace steps and to experience the joy of retrieval.
The exhibition asks the audience how we find clarity and closure when the subject has ceased. It allows the artists to answer how the unforeseen is evitable not calculated or measured because ultimately our possessions may have disappeared but we are still here.

The show is on from 4-18 August, 2018. Opening reception Saturday 4th August 7pm-10pm.
