INFORMATION ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
Created by artist, curator, and legendary CalArts professor Karen Atkinson, Getting Your Sh*t Together (GYST) is the often-imitated workshop for emerging artists, and for artists who’ve been "emerging" longer than they expected. Over 400 artists have graduated from GYST since 2002 and their continued success and contributions to the art world are what gives GYST such a great reputation.
GYST teaches you the business stuff you should have learned in art school, but didn’t. GYST values self-sufficiency and presents you with information, skills, and strategies to make things happen without necessarily waiting around for some arbiter of culture to validate your work. We’re not concerned with producing slick, commercialized artists, nor is this some new age, touchy-feely "find your inner artist" crap.
Over 8-weeks, you’ll create and refine your "presentation package," artist statement, bio, resume, portfolio, and more, with the full editorial and technical support of GYST staff.
GYST culminates with Curator Speed Dating (when we can). Get real-world feedback on your portfolio and proposals from some of the area’s hottest curators.
Students also get a complimentary copy of the new GYST software, which usually retails for $129. The MAC and PC based program is packed with all the organizing tools and information resources every artist needs.
We are glad you are tuning in! What are we up to? What is this? Do you have to listen? Yes. And you can here, on itunes, through our Facebook Page, or follow us on twitter. TWITTER: twitter.com/GYSTRadio FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/GYST-Radio/183661511664080
Hiatus is a recurring performance art series created and curated by artist Molly Shea at Eastside International (formerly Raid Projects in downtown Los Angeles). Molly ran a similar series called Dutch Door within her studio space at Raid, before she got access to the main space. Hiatus' themed events will occur during the time between exhibitions and are often one-night shows featuring artists who create time-based work and are pushing the boundaries of genre.

Corrie Siegel is an artist, curator and educator committed to using the arts as a method of personal philosophic exploration and a tool for community building.
Her projects have been profiled in the Los Angeles Times, Mouse Magazine, and Flash Art International. She has partnered with the LA Philharmonic, LA County Museum of Art, Barnsdall Art Center, Armory Center for the Arts, and the Corita Art Center to create and implement cultural educational programming. She is currently a Six Points Fellow.
Her recent project, Star Tours, was a participatory exhibition located within a 16 foot truck, which traveled to sites throughout Los Angeles. Star Tours was a nomadic initiative intended to draw connections between local communities and cross-cultural narratives of the Jewish Diaspora. Her exhibited work referenced cartography, graffiti and Los Angeles iconography to explore identity and place. Visitors were invited to participate in the project in a variety of ways.
