Suzanne Morlock: Shelter From The Storm

Since August 15 our current CoCA Lab Artist in Residence, Seattle artist and interventionist, Suzanne Morlock, has been collaborating on a process of experimental exchange revolving around a shared conceptual concern about homelessness.

Morlock has been interrogating this human inequity of since moving to Pioneer Square in 2014. She continues to investigate the phenomenon in her neighborhood and seeks to expand the creative outcomes in collaboration with others using this laboratory environment. The residency will end this Saturday, September 10, 2016 during Art Attack, and we invite you to join us for the culminating piece which will be on display at CoCA UN[contained] along with a performative element that will extend through part of the event.

CoCA 24-Hour Art Marathon, New Wave Ball & Art Auction

CoCA’s 24th Annual 24-Hour Art Marathon & Auction is a three-day celebration of contemporary art. Held at the Summit Building in Seattle (420 E Pike St), the events starts at 10am Thursday, November 10 when over 20 artists embark on a 24-hour journey where they paint, draw, collage, spray, cut, code and wax their way to over 100 new works of art. For this year's marathon and auction we are throwing it back to the New Wave Era of 1981, the year of CoCA's first exhibition by James Turrell.  Glam it up and pull on those wristbands, studded belts, lots of hairspray (or egg whites for you mohawk-wearing types) and a little teasing!

Tickets go on sale for our fabulous CoCA New Wave Ball & Art Auction this Saturday, September 10 at http://cocaauction2016.bpt.me/.

"Insert Pithy Title Here: 35 Years of CoCA" 

Thanks so much to everyone who joined us on Thursday night in celebrating the grand opening of our new space, and the reception for "Insert Pithy Title Here: 35 Years of CoCA." We are beyond excited to join the inspiring art community of the Tashiro Kaplan Building, and we are very touched by the warm welcoming we received Thursday, and in the days since. It seems fitting as we enter a new phase of CoCA in a new permanent space, that we share an exhibition that reflects on the last 35 years of CoCA's exhibitions and events all over Seattle.

"Insert Pithy Title Here: 35 Years of CoCA,"  an exhibition of works from the CoCA Archives Project, is on view through October 1. Stop by to see the new space, peruse some CoCA history, and add your own CoCA experiences to our interactive memory wall!

On View: September 1-October 1, 2016
Where: 114 3rd Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104
Gallery Hours: Thursday-Saturday, 12-6pm

September CoCA Star
 

Trina Cooper

For our September CoCA Star feature, we are very happy to share the work of Seattle artist Trina Cooper. Trina inspires us with creative, informative and interactive works, as well as her generous support of the Seattle art community. She is a participating CoCA artist and also one of our most dedicated volunteers, who has spent countless hours helping the CoCA team with a range of projects from art installation, event management, and gallery sitting. We don't know what we'd do without her.

Trinas' art explores the forces of nature that are intrinsic in humans and their relationship to the environments they inhabit. These interests were depicted in her recent CoCA Lab Artist Residency at CoCA UN[contained], where she built an interactive environmental video installation called The Breathing Machine. Head to the blog to read about the exciting plans Trina has for evolving this project- clue: it involves a bouncy castle...

From all of us at CoCA, Trina, we can't thank you enough for your support and enthusiastic participation. We can't wait to see what you come up with next.
