Today, OCMA announced the names of the 32 artists whose work will appear in the 2013 California-Pacific Triennial. Formally known as the California Biennial, this first iteration of the new format includes artists from 15 countries that border the Pacific Ocean; placing California art within a Pacific Rim context.  California's geographical position on the Pacific Ocean has long enriched its cultural prominence, and the demographics of the state are strongly linked to the diverse countries along the Pacific Rim, which are producing some of the most innovative art today. The California-Pacific Triennial is on view June 30 through November 17, 2013.


Despite the phenomenal economic and cultural growth of the Asian and Latin American countries that border the Pacific, and California's proximity to these developments, there had previously been no exhibition in the Western Hemisphere to regularly explore this activity. With national boundaries becoming more porous and cultural connections taking place between artists and viewers from various backgrounds, the flow of ideas and images crisscrossing the planet becomes a crucial component of any contemporary art survey. The California-Pacific Triennial, under the direction of Chief Curator Dan Cameron, places artists working in California within this broader global network, one that is particularly relevant to our region and that will offer visitors a unique opportunity to engage in a more cosmopolitan conversation about contemporary art.


Besides hailing from 15 countries, the 32 participating artists in the 2013 California-Pacific Triennial represent a full range of artistic media-from traditional painting and sculpture, ceramics, fiber art and drawing, to forms more associated with recent developments, such as photography, video and film, performance, installation and conceptual art. It is also an intergenerational group, with artists ranging from 31 to 76 years of age; and represents a diversity of careers, from the internationally renowned to the barely known.


According to Curator Dan Cameron, "the exhibition design for the Triennial sets up what I hope will be very dynamic exchanges between artists whose work appears highly divergent, while pulling the viewer into the process of locating the common ground between them. My goal is for our public to experience the Triennial as a genuine celebration of artistic possibilities, nurtured here or brought to California from all these nations and peoples with whom we share the Pacific Ocean."
