No End in Sight presents the work and practices of Headlands’ 2016–17 Graduate Fellows. In the spirit of the organization’s history of encouraging artistic exploration and experimentation, this exhibition travels the path of an idea to fruition, taking various routes and perspectives. What happens when we begin to understand an art practice as an evolution rather than a result-oriented endeavor? Whether it be with meticulous resea…rch, collection of scientific data, sketches as preparation for acts of chance, the organic development of the handmade, thinking through digital culture via analog devices, or the act of autobiographical documentation, No End in Sight asks fruitful questions rather than presenting final answers.

Participating Artists:
Angela Willets, UC Davis
Shannon Abac, San Francisco State University
Jose Figueroa, University of California, Berkeley
Kunlin He, San Francisco Art Institute
Cy Keener, Stanford University
Nicole Lavelle, California College of the Arts
Holden Schultz, Mills College

Headlands’ Graduate Fellowships is a year-long studio program for recent MFA graduates in partnership with esteemed Bay Area academic institutions. Graduate Fellows are given the support of a private studio, public presentation opportunities, and participation in Headlands’ peer-to-peer community of local, national, and international artists.

This event is part of Headlands’ off-site program series while our campus is closed to the public for construction on The Commons. We’re thrilled to co-present and collaborate with several Bay Area cultural organizations and partners.
