Stills from Norman Klein's exhibit

The Beall Center for Art and Technology at UCI is another exceptional venue for some of the most interesting art installations I’ve ever come across. Being interested in the fine arts and their subsequent areas of interest but not having studied them, going into the Beall for an exhibit was always a welcome learning experience. This being not only my first year at school but my first time at the Beall Center, I was blown away.

The Beall Center for Art and Technology has been known for bringing fresh perspectives to the eyes of UCI with their exhibits and they’ve done it again.

On March 2, an exhibition titled ‘Mapping the Unfindable’ opened at the center. It features collaborative work blending together written works by Los Angeles ‘renaissance man’ Norman M. Klein and various Beall contributors.

The reception included a book signing for Klein’s latest novella, ‘Freud in Coney Island.’ Present was Klein and the artists and curators who put together the exhibition. Also present were those who collaborated with his written word to create five separate installations for the exhibit. His five works, ‘The Vatican to Vegas: The History of Special Effects,’ ‘Bleeding Through: Layers of Los Angeles, 1920-1986,’ ‘Freud-Lissitzky Navigator,’ ‘The History of Forgetting: Los Angeles and the Erasure of Memory’ and ‘Seven Minutes: The Life and Death of the American Animated Cartoon’ were represented in the exhibition.
