Lift Off at ICA in San Jose

The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in San Jose is holding its 6th Annual Lift Off exhibition this weekend. The show marks the culmination of two to three years of intensive investigation by students in the Fine Arts program at SJSU and launches the graduates into the next chapter of their artistic pursuits.

The exhibition features sculpture, photography, painting, mixed media and new media, and includes works by: Kirkman Amyx, Pernilla Andersson, Tracy Burk, shiloh burton, Yunan Cao, Wendy Crockett, Jim Edgeworth, Johnny Hanna, Hedwig Heerschop, Barbara Horiuchi, Trevor Koch, John Pickelle, Beverly Rayner, Elizabeth Robera, Danielle Siembieda, Susan Suriyapa, and Hongbiao Wang.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the MFA graduates have published a catalog of their work with essays by Art History Master Degree candidates Tariq Abdul-Wahad, Sarah Goodman, Heather Peterson, Maayan Glaser-Koren and Samantha Johnson.

Lift Off is an extension of the ICA’s commitment to provide meaningful opportunities for emerging artists to present their work to the public. The ICA is always excited to present the work of new artists and develop a collaboration with a diverse group of art makers and thinkers who reflect the cultural vibrancy of our community.
