Sofia Córdova Collaborative Sound Performance

Echoes of A Tumbling Throne (Odas Al Fin De Los Tiempos) is a live sound and video performance suite that imagines our world 1,000 years in the future. Presented on September 16 at the Richmond Art Center by artists Sofia Córdova and Matt Kirkland, this performance creates a world that examines current social structures: racial and gender hierarchies, humanity’s relationship to nature, the environment vis-à-vis technological, industrial, and capitalist society.

As part of the Richmond Art Center’s Fall 2016 exhibition, Making Our Mark, Córdova’s performance-based work will coexist with the installation ¡Auxilio! ¡Socorro!, on exhibition with work by renowned photographer Richard Misrach. These songs are scored by XUXA SANTAMARIA, the musical team of Córdova and Kirkland.

Opening Reception: Making Our Mark and Marking New Paths

In celebration of our 80th Anniversary at the Richmond Art Center, this major exhibition Making Our Mark looks to artists who have exhibited, supported, and enriched our programs. Some of the celebrated artists including James Melchert, Hung Liu, Squeak Carnwath, and Lia Cook, had their first exhibitions at the Richmond Art Center and serve as the heart of the Bay Area art community–teaching, mentoring, and lighting a path for younger artists.

We invited each of these artists to put forward a younger artist: someone whom they have personally taught or mentored or whose work should be visible. This is in line with our history and mission at the Richmond Art Center–giving a voice to new artists and opening our galleries to new visions.

The complete list of artists included in Making Our Mark are Dru Anderson, Megan Atherton, Christopher Brown, Ethan Caflisch, Squeak Carnwath, Enrique Chagoya, Lia Cook, Sofia Córdova, Yvette Deas, Allan deSouza, Nathan Dollarhite, Michael Hall, Scott Hewitt, Mildred Howard, Hung Liu, Nicholas Makanna, Bruce McGaw, James Melchert, Richard Misrach, Kate Nartker, Deborah Oropallo, Shari Paladino, Johanna Poethig, Richard Shaw, Ehren Tool, Mary Hull Webster, William T. Wiley, and Wanxin Zhang.

The Richmond Art Center has invited Allan deSouza, Professor of Photography and Chair of the Department of Art Practice, University of California Berkeley, to guest curate Marking New Paths, an exhibition of work by current degree candidates, which will be presented in the Community Gallery.
