Wireless: Francis Baudevin, Matthew Beiderman and Marko Peljhan, Dove Bradshaw, Nathan Carter, Tyler Coburn, Aaron S. Davidson and Melissa Dubbin, Ellie Ga, Nicolas Lobo, Neighborhood Public Radio, Daniel Perlin, Roman Signer, and Jim Toth. Curated by Elizabeth Lovero
In honor of community radio station KCSB’s 50th anniversary, CAF presents Wireless, an exhibition featuring an international roster of artists exploring themes of radio transmission and communications. KCSB is a leader in non-commercial FM radio and the resurgent free-form format in the U.S. KCSB 91.9 FM is run by the Associated Students of the University of California Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, CA. Wireless at CAF showcases artists residing in New York, Berlin, London, and Santa Barbara whose work is similarly concerned with the conveyance of ideas, memories, and objects across distances long and short. Former KCSB DJ and CAF Assistant Curator, NY-based curator Elizabeth Lovero brings together diverse mediums, such as sculptural installations, painting, video, photography, and sound, by artists Francis Baudevin, Dove Bradshaw, Nathan Carter, Tyler Coburn, Melissa Dubbin and Aaron S. Davidson, Ellie Ga, Nicolas Lobo, Neighborhood Public Radio, Marko Peljhan and Matthew Beiderman, Daniel Perlin, Roman Signer, and Jim Toth. Wireless addresses pertinent issues in the radio community by showing works that champion individuality, mirror the spirit of decentralization and diversity in ownership and programming, explore community and low-power radio stations, and challenge the corporate broadcasting formulas.
In addition, Jim Toth’s new sculptural speaker installation will carry the KCSB stream 24/7 at CAF and the UCSB MultiCultural Center will screen Magic Radio, a film about the democratic power of radio in Niger, on November 16, 6 pm at the MCC Theatre. Admission to exhibition and the above listed associated events is free.
Elizabeth Lovero is a curator and writer, who is currently pursuing an M.A. in Art History at Hunter College, New York, NY.

Bloom Projects: Kathleen Yorba, Sequence
Kathleen Yorba is a mixed-media artist, her interests are the study of her Latina genealogy, the idea of organic memory and the inner workings of what is fondly called the three-pound enigma (brain). Yorba delights in the novelty of discovery while furthering her ongoing exploration of memory and identity. Delicate materials and artistic brevity encourage rumination on “the illusive characteristics of memory,” and inspiration drawn from the observation of a beehive’s life cycle reflects the search for internal meaning in the world outside.
Kathleen Yorba is originally from La Junta, CO and currently lives and works in Arroyo Grande, CA. She received her M.F.A. from Azusa Pacific University, Azusa, CA and her B.A. from the University La Verne, La Verne, CA. Yorba was selected for the Jentel Artist Residency Program in 2010. Most recently she has shown in exhibitions at the Pacific Arts League, Palo Alto, CA, Studio 5216, Los Angeles, CA, and 825 Gallery, Los Angeles, CA.
