ACTIVATE! 2020 (V2.0)
APRIL 30 – MAY 30, 2020
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
ACTIVATE! 2020 was initially intended as a one-night presentation of multiple installations and exhibitions situated in the Visual Arts courtyard and galleries (Begovich, Duff, Exit, and Freedman). It was scheduled to open on April 9 during Arts Week.
During the week of March 16 leading up to the event, CSUF began State protocols for COVID-19 which resulted in the cancellation of programming and the shifting of face-to-face classroom instruction into virtual modes. While this pandemic radically rearranged our social structures and routines, the Begovich Gallery, like most art institutions in the nation, continues its programming through digital platforms.
The exhibition, now re-titled, ACTIVATE! 2020 (v.2.0), implies the modified presentation in which the works are showcased. The new title also reflects on a significant moment in our students’ lives– producing art during an unprecedented time in their college career. The works on view are created by CSUF students and represent various disciplines in the visual arts. Every week until the end of the Spring semester, this site will be updated with a new set of works from each participating class.
