Michele O’Marah: Video Portraits
Angeles-based artist Michele O’Marah explores the effects of popular
culture, deconstructing in particular Hollywood genre conventions with
both reverence and criticality. Her commitment to involving the arts
community as an active participant has always been an underlying
element in her work. This exhibition will present a series of video

Home Show, Revisited
The reference to the community in Michele O’Marah’s solo exhibition in CAF's main gallery, Michele O'Marah:Video Portraits,
provides a bridge to a public exhibition component co-curated by the
artist and Miki Garcia, Executive Director. Reprising two of CAF’s most
significant exhibitions, Home Show (1988) and Home Show2 (1996), the two invited 10 Los Angeles-based artists to reconsider the
societal and cultural notion of “home,” by creating site-specific
installations in residences throughout Santa Barbara. Artists include:
Piero Golia, Evan Holloway, Bettina Hubby, Florian Morlat, Kori
Newkirk, Jennifer Rochlin, Ry Rocklen, Kirsten Stoltmann, Stephanie
Taylor, and Jennifer West. The homes will be open to the public on
Friday, and weekends throughout the run of the exhibition. Visitors to
CAF will be given a map and instructions for the tour.

Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB), formerly the Contemporary Arts Forum (CAF), is a non-profit, non-collecting institution dedicated to exhibiting the highest quality of contemporary art while recognizing "the artists of tomorrow," and was founded in 1976 by artists and art supporters seeking a venue dedicated solely to contemporary art. What once began as a grassroots, artist-run organization with nominal funding now serves as the leading contemporary arts presenter in Central California. MCASB offers its innovative education and exhibition programming to the region primarily free of charge. There is no admission fee because MCASB believes that the arts should be accessible to all audiences of all persuasions.
MCASB advances creativity and inspires critical thinking through meaningful engagement with the art of our time.
