ON THE AGENDA
2013 highlights and what's in store for 2014
Curatorial Committee Report
2014 Exhibition Calendar
Community Discussion: Recent Trends in Contemporary Art: Avoid or Target? No doubt you've seen the abundance of hyper-fashion performance spectacle, or the embrace of ANYTHING recycled, or the goldrush to appropriate ethnographic iconicity, or even the craze for upscale craft objects -- the question is, how should you let all that inform your practice? Do you avoid all that, stick to your guns, or do you incorporate some aspects? Which aspects? What about experimental forms like pseudo-geography or all the attention on temporality and spatial relationships? Join the CoCA curators for this dynamic discussion.

Sound and Video by AJ Lindner
Thursday, February 20, 7:00pm & 8:00pm (gallery open until 9:00pm)
as part of ART@SDC Third Thursday Open Galleries.
CoCA Georgetown Gallery 5701 Sixth Ave S, Suite 258
In perfect accompaniment to our current exhibit, AJ Lindner will perform a piece from his psychology influenced "brainwave entrainment-core" carhartech project. The piece explores the subjective experience of time through targeted and applied sensory exploitation. Brainwave entrainment technologies, and psychological prompting are embedded in the audio/video. Lindner is aware that he is employing techniques of subliminal coercion and induction purportedly used in the weaponization of mass media, advertisement, and cultic indoctrination, but assures audiences that the experience is intended to be ontological, not subjugating, in nature. Lindner has dedicated this piece to Fotamecus, the servitor of time manipulation.
AJ Lindner is a Seattle sound and video artist, curator, promoter, and experimental music advocate. His latest work is featured in the Storefronts Seattle project. Lindner's cathartech is an experimental media project that aims to meld music, psychology, technology, and occult processes into a unified force of functional audio - audio that produces altered states of consciousness through intention.

Showtimes are at 7pm and 8pm.

Center on Contemporary Art is pleased to present the 24th CoCA Annual, a juried exhibition exhibiting work from emerging as well as established artists in a wide variety of visual media. Artists in any region and any country are welcome to submit, and entries are often receied from around the country and around the world. The exhibit showcases the ways in which contemporary artists, regardless of their location, share similar aesthetic concerns and conceptual approaches in a world of increasingly dramatic flux, while at the same time highlighting their differences. In recent years, jurors have included M.K. Guth, Gary Hill, Juan Alonso, and Jess Van Nostrand.
