OAKLAND, CA.- Mills College Art Museum announced the 2017 Art + Process + Ideas (A+P+I) exhibition on view from June 28-August 27, 2017 featuring new work from Sofía Córdova, Sanaz Mazinani, and Genevieve Quick. Launched in January 2015, A+P+I is an artist-in-residence program hosted by the Mills College Art Department and Mills College Art Museum. The residency fosters interdisciplinary collaboration and provides opportunities for students, faculty, and staff of Mills College as well as the larger Bay Area arts community to interact, learn, and work with the visiting artists. The A+P+I residency culminates in a summer exhibition at MCAM that features new work created by the artists while in residence. The 2017 A+P+I exhibition showcases the work of the third round of artists to the program. Each of these artists brings with them a unique approach to art-making and a commitment to research that compliments an academic setting.

Working with video and sound installations, performance, and sculpture the artists explore questions around site and materiality through diverse artistic approaches. Through material experiments and performance, Sofía Córdova continues to flesh out the textures and remnants of a world premised on the slow ecological decline of earth 1500 years into the future, the results of which include the destruction of historical time and a cultural rebirth for those who remain. Sanaz Mazinani's sound based installations bring together an assemblage of objects and audio clips to consider the de-stabilizing effects of war. Using sourced sounds of explosions in combination with found objects and articles from the Mills collection, Mazinani creates an intimate yet disquieting installation. Genevieve Quick explores the parallels between the deep sea and outer space through a video installation and sculptures. The video chronicles a deep-sea diver and astronaut as they journey below and above our atmosphere where they transform into their avatars­­—a narwhal and a unicorn.

Mills has a long tradition of supporting artists and this residency continues the campus' important role as a site for exploring new ideas in the arts.

Born in 1985 in Carolina, Puerto Rico, Sofía Córdova is an interdisciplinary artist working primarily with video, music, installation, photography, and performance. Her work looks at those things which plague othered bodies, particularly as they relate to late global-industrial capitalism, climate change and technology.

She received her BFA from St. John’s University in Queens, NY in 2006, and her MFA from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco in 2010. She also completed the one-year certificate program at the International Center for Photography in New York in 2006. She has performed at SFMOMA, SOMArts and Galeria De La Raza among others.

Her work is part of both Pier 24’s and The Whitney's permanent collections and was recently the subject of a First Look feature in Art in America Magazine.

Sanaz Mazinani is a contemporary artist who works primarily in photography, and large-scale sculpture and installations. She obtained her undergraduate degree in photography from the Ontario College of Art & Design University, and an MFA from Stanford University where her research focused on the study of digital photographic propagation and its impact on representation and perception.

Mazinani has participated in worldwide exhibitions including the Art Museum at the University of Toronto; Southern Alberta Art Gallery; di Rosa Museum, Napa, California; Emirates Financial Towers, Dubai; Fotografie Forum Frankfurt; and Museum Bärengasse, Zürich. She has been the subject of solo exhibitions at institutions such as Asian Art Museum, San Francisco and West Vancouver Museum. Her work is in private and public collections, including the Canada Council Art Bank; Cleveland Museum of Art, and San Francisco International Airport.
