Presented by Mills College Art Museum, the 2019 Art + Process + Ideas (A+P+I) Exhibition features new work by current A+P+I artists in residence, Constance Hockaday and Cate White.

Constance Hockaday explores the neurological processes triggered in emergency survival scenarios and how to apply them to slow motion disasters of global and historic proportions. Hockaday will present FutureHellNow, part of an ongoing inquiry into American ideas of disaster and the future, which the artist refers to as the Survival Series. FutureHellNow is an installation and a performance space where Hockaday has constructed a potential domestic reality that integrates our less visible but ever present internal, perpetual panic.

Cate White shifts from working within familiar concepts and processes to risking improvisation, integrating known and unknown, private and public, controlled and free, self and other. Work displayed from the first half of her time in residency will demonstrate subjects she has been exploring for the past five years: cultural constructs of gender, race, power, beauty and how emotional intimacy allows for new perceptions. The rest of the works in the exhibition will track the evolution of her work during the remainder of her residency, marking a transformation in her approach to art making.

The 2019 Art+Process+Ideas Artist Residency is supported through the generosity of the Agnes Cowles Bourne Fund for Special Exhibitions. Additional support for Constance Hockaday’s ongoing project Old Man, Dance is provided by the Kenneth Rainin Foundation.

The 2019 Art+Process+Ideas Exhibition: Constance Hockaday, Cate White will be on view from June 23 – September 1, 2019 with an opening reception on June 22 from 5-7 pm.
