Headlands Center for the Arts

Project Space

Project Space presents site-specific exhibitions that are guided by information and experiences gathered while work is in progress at Headlands. Home to select Artists in Residence each season, as well as occasional group exhibitions by visiting artists and curators, Project Space is a place of exchange among working artists and visitors—a place where ideas are germinated, conversations are shared, and new work is made.

Genevieve Quick (California) | Sahar Khoury (California)
July 29–August 27

Genevieve Quick uses tropes of Science Fiction to address otherness and history through performance, sculpture, installation, and video. In her Planet Celadon series, Quick has exaggerated the displacement and alienness of the Asian American diaspora in an absurd intergalactic narrative that features fantastical characters, including narwhals, unicorns, living vases, and an Asianaut. In her Project Space residency, Quick will continue her Planet Celadon series as an interactive video and sound installation that uses the language and format of video games to send a message to the galaxies.

Sahar Khoury creates sculptures and installations that feel at once familiar and jarring, rendering household forms—vases, waste bins, chairs, a sleeping cat—as strange arrangements and accumulations of cement, metal, ceramic, resin, pigments, textiles, and papier-mâché. Khoury’s work has an improvisational and magpie resourcefulness to it, often incorporating rejected or found materials from her surrounding neighborhood, community, and personal daily space as armatures or conceptual starting points. During her Project Space residency Khoury will bring a similar approach to Headlands, incorporating found elements with her familiar materials to create an immersive, architectural, site-specific installation.
