I want to extend my thanks to the people who helped make Object Lessons at Gigantic Art Space [GAS] possible.
First, I want to thank Lea Rekow, Director of Gigantic ArtSpace for her advice and creative feedback in helping me select the artists for the show. I want to thank Dylan Gauthier, Assistant Director of GAS for organizing and managing the exhibition's logistics with such expertise, grace and flare. I especially want to thank Kelly Sears, of the Center for Integrated Media at CalArts for her personal support and her acute attention to detail in supervising the extensive communication and coordination of tasks between GAS, the Center for Integrated Media and the artists.
I want to give special thanks to the seven artists in the show; Peter Cho, Kelli Cane, Brian Crabtree, Sean Dockray, Tom Jennings, Nate Harrison and Patrick Vaillancourt.
Finally I'd like to thank Daniel Langlois and the The Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science and Technology, Fiona Whitten of Telic Gallery and Mark Allen of Machine Project for their support and assistance as well as all the faculty, staff and students of the Center for Integrated Media at CalArts.
Director, Center for Integrated Media at the California Institute of the Arts
