THE OPTION TO…
OCTOBER 2020 – FEBRUARY 2021

A series of commissioned projects by Kimberley Acebo Arteche, Roya Ebtehaj, Feral Fabric, Dionne Lee, Adia Millett, and Astria Suparak

ABOUT THE SERIES
Berkeley Art Center presents a series of newly commissioned projects by artists working in video, animation, writing, textiles, photography, and interactive media. As we continue to navigate a world of limited interaction, we invited six artists to make pieces that we could present online in some way. There was no thematic requirement, no overarching curatorial framework — just an opportunity to respond to our new shared reality with an idea that they saw as relevant to the continuation or expansion of their practice. For us, the value of these works is in the process of their making as much as in the thing that is made. Their timing coincides with a yearlong initiative by the Feminist Art Coalition to draw attention to projects informed by various feminisms. New projects will be released every few weeks beginning in October.
