ARTifact, a gallery housed in the public spaces in and around the office of Academic Programs at Sixth College, showcases artwork conceptually related to the courses in the Culture, Art, and Technology program. The gallery functions as an integrated learning laboratory, transforming the working environment of the Academic Programs Office into a hybrid space where contemporary art and the CAT curriculum convene.

2017-2018: Office—Spaced


  1. position (two or more items) at a distance from one another
  2. be or become distracted, euphoric, or disoriented; cease to be aware of one's surroundings

Office—Spaced is a curated set of site-specific events, think tanks, workshops, and performances that activate the office space of the Culture, Art, and Technology program. A concurrent residency program will also run alongside the curated program and culminate with two resident shows. As a research module, Office—Spaced interrogates both formal and informal institutions and systems of knowledge, as well as how the built environment shapes us and how we shape it. Notions of art, technology, and culture will be explored, problematized, and utilized. Office—Spaced will use the macrocosm of the CAT office space to explore larger institutional issues that engage with Sixth College, UCSD, the broader San Diego community, and the world.

Look out here for upcoming shows and residency information!
