ARC presents Premiere, the inaugural exhibition of Andrew Castañeda’s recent photo and painting works. Organizing his work to mirror the structure of a day in TV programming, individual pieces from various ongoing series are exhibited among each other, just the way episodes of disparate TV shows run back-to-back every day. The range of the work presented is akin to the spectrum of television programming: from documentary to cartoon, commercial break to made-for-tv movie. Tune into Premiere for artworks of familiar silhouette and claymation lands that walk viewers through TV sets of joy, turmoil, and loss. Andrew Castañeda grew up surfing and skateboarding in sunny southern California. Castañeda has work in two private collections: The American Museum of Ceramic Arts at Pomona, CA and the Kansas City Art Institute Teaching Collection. Castañeda earned his BFA in ceramics from the Kansas City Art Institute, his MFA from Penn State University, and is currently Harvard’s Artist in Resistance 2020-2021.
