SAN FRANCISCO, CA (August 29, 2019) – New work by Bay Area installation artist, Anja Ulfeldt, investigates selective “truth” at the University of San Francisco.
Anja Ulfeldt: Selectively Informed shows from Sept. 19 to Dec. 15, 2019 on the Kalmanovitz Hall Sculpture Terrace at USF. Artist tours will take place Thursday, Sept. 19, 10:45 a.m. and 12:45 p.m., with a reception from 11:30-12:30 p.m. A Saturday viewing will be held on Sept. 28, 1-4 p.m.
Featuring new, site specific works by Bay Area artist Anja Ulfeldt, Selectively Informed is an investigation into current trends towards selective “truth” in media, with a focus on radio broadcasting. From a large sculptural dwelling to interactive sound installations, Ulfeldt’s works explore themes of infrastructure and communication. Selectively Informed, the piece from which the exhibition draws its name, creates an intimate listening space where visitors can orchestrate a customizable chorus of radio voices and opinions.
About the artist
Anja Ulfeldt is a Bay Area installation artist working primarily in sculpture and time based media. Imbued with a sense of mortality that is both an examination and a celebration of contemporary life, Ulfeldt’s work addresses psychological relationships to human infrastructure through visual art, sound, and durational experience. Ulfeldt is a full-time lecturer at Stanford University in the areas of Sculpture and Emerging Technology. Currently an artist in residence at Stochastic Labs in Berkeley, CA, she has exhibited in the Bay Area at institutions including Pro Arts Gallery, Kala Art Institute, SOMArts, The Museum of Craft & Design, and in venues in New York, London, Salzburg and Berlin.
