FAR BAZAAR : JAN 2017: CERRITOS COLLEGE
Association of Hysteric Curators #HOMEECONOMICS
This coming year, 2017, marks the fortieth anniversary of the Foundation for Art Resources (FAR - http://www.far-la.org/), one of the oldest artist-run non-profits in Southern California. To honor this major milestone of 40 years, FAR is collaborating with Cerritos College to host its biggest FAR Bazaar event ever. In February of 2017, after over 55+ years of use, Cerritos College will be retiring and demolishing its existing Fine Arts complex. This mid-century modernist structure, now sits side-by-side with its replacement, a massive new Fine Arts building to be completed in December 2016. Before the old building is torn down, however, Cerritos College, with the help of FAR, will transform every abandoned classroom and administrative space into temporary exhibitions, each to be guest-curated by local art collectives and alternative art spaces, as well as the graduate programs from regional colleges, universities, and art schools.
A VIP opening taking place on the night of Friday, January 27th, with two day-long events taking place Saturday (28th) and Sunday (29th), to include a food truck festival in the parking lot, a series of panel discussions, ongoing musical/dance performances, video screenings, and an art book fair.
