Danielle Wallis 10/27 Program

From Studio Art to Social Art, by Danielle Giudici Wallis

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 @ 7:00pm

The Tuesday Program is Free and open to the public.

Danielle Giudici Wallis will be presenting an overview of her work beginning with her early sculptural metalwork, and discussing the transition to more temporal materials and methods. She has moved from a solitary studio practice as an object maker, towards more of a social practice model which includes large and small collaborative projects.

Danielle is an artist, educator, and arts administrator. She received her BA from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio and her MFA from Stanford University, where she was the recipient of the Murphy Cadogan Grant, the James Borelli Fellowship in Art, the Anita Squires Memorial Fund in Photography and a fellowship from the Cantor Center for the Visual Arts.   Her   work has been exhibited widely in the Bay area and beyond, including shows at Catharine Clark Gallery, Mark Wolfe Contemporary Art, Raid Projects in Los Angeles, A.I.R. in New York, and The California Palace of the Legion of Honor which holds one of her artist’s books in their Achenbach collection. She was nominated twice for SFMOMA’s SECA Award and participated in the American debut of Takashi Murakami’s GEISAI Miami. Most recently, she has been exploring social and collaborative practices.

Examples of this include her “Beating Invasives” project, which was part of the Riverside Art Museum’s “Art Make,” and a series of collaborative artists’ books with letterpress printer, Marie Dern. Her administrative work has become a complementary medium as she explores larger collaborative projects, bringing organizations and communities together through the arts.  She currently serves as the Executive Director of Arts Connection, The Arts Council of San Bernardino County.
