“KREASHUN” is a collaboration of two distinctly different Artist’s, Monty Montgomery and JFeather. **KREASHUN** is ALIVE... After over 12 years as an idea in a sketchbook, the right situation has found it’s way into the path... Monty Montgomery and Jason Feather (JFeather) bumped into each other about 3 years ago in San Diego, CA.  After working on various projects and exhibits with or around each other, the fellas began to come up with ideas on merging into a TEAM! It started out with an exhibit at the THREAD show in San Diego, CA. and has already spread through more exhibits and massive “LIVE” murals in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas with plans on starting to move into NYC and through the USA, eventually creating all over the GLOBE! J Feather and Monty Montgomery team up to create dreamlike murals that allow the viewer to enjoy the ride. From “LIVE” mural displays for special events to product creation, “KREASHUN” attacks every project with the common goal of creating something like no other.

For Art San Diego 2013, KREASHUN will create a live 7’H x 20’W mural.

Museum of Photographic Arts & Kevin Cooley
HAYABUSA
Curated / Produced by: Chantel Paul
Artist: Kevin Cooley

Photographer and video artist, Kevin Cooley's newest work, Hayabusa Reentry (2013) is a five channel video piece focusing on the dramatic reentry into the earth's atmosphere by an unmanned Japanese space probe. The piece continues Cooley's exploration of our complex relationship to the natural world, in this instance, outer space. Reworked NASA video footage cascades across the screens of five recovered, black and white CRT televisions, emulating the Hayabusa's downward trajectory as it plunges towards earth. This image is an artist rendering of the installation.

Oceanside Museum of Art & Becky Guttin
WE CAN WORK IT OUT
Curated by: Becky Guttin
Artists: Becky Guttin

Marking the first exhibition of its kind at OMA, We Can Work It Out transformed the lobby of the Oceanside Museum of Art with a site-specific installation that invited visitors into OMA’s vibrant culture through the lens of Becky Guttin’s colorful personal, cultural and familial constructions of home. Guttin will recreate that exhibition at the entrance for at ART SAN DIEGO 2013.
 
Inspired by memories of her childhood growing up in Mexico City, Becky Guttin works with cultural symbols that allow her to explore her interest in the contradictions of life, and the cultural conflict she struggles with every day. Playing around with the idiom mi casa es su casa which translates into English as “my house is your house,” Guttin more accurately states mi casa es mi casa in her bold carpet, commenting on the truth that a person’s home is a private sphere of comfort and intimacy that could never belong to anyone else. This dominant concept of the home, seen throughout Guttin’s work, is mirrored by the small metal painted houses near the entrance that meditate on the innate human need to construct a home and find belonging in community.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8
THE GAME AT HAND
1:00 – 2:00 pm / Center Lounge

Visitors are invited to play “The Game at Hand,” a hand-made chess set and a poignant commentary on US involvement in the Middle East. At a distance, this piece appears to be simply a beautifully hand-made chess set. Closer inspection, however, reveals the futility of this game. As viewers are encouraged to play, it becomes clear that this game cannot be conducted fairly even with conscientious intentions. This set has toured the nation and was featured at the US Chess Championships.

THINKING ON OUR FEET
5:00 – 6:00 pm / Meet in Center Lounge

Come along with “Roving Docents” Debby and Larry Kline for a tour of the  galleries exhibiting at Art San Diego. The Klines will lead an impromptu discussion of selected works. Wear your walking shoes.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9
LUNCH WITH THE KLINES
1:00 – 2:00 pm / Center Lounge

In this performance piece, The Klines will have lunch in the Center Lounge. The public can enjoy and join in the creative process as they create art from the detritus at the table. Watch as napkins, straws, toothpicks and other bits of flotsam are transformed into a sculpture. “My Dinner with The Klines,” the book and DVD set created from the series, will also be on view along with short videos created while dining.  The final work will be photographed for possible inclusion in the next volume of “My Dinner with the Klines.”
