News Release| Graduate Thesis Exhibit; Cal State L.A.


Cal State
L.A.’s Graduate Thesis Exhibit
features ‘Tangible Design’

Exhibit to
run from Nov. 13 through 27

Los Angeles,
CA  --

From Nov. 13 through 27, the

Fine Arts Gallery
at Cal State L.A. will display the works of CSULA
student Hazar Nevzat Bayindir as his graduate thesis.
This Graduate Thesis Exhibition is the first in a series of
Master of Fine Arts Exhibitions at CSULA for the 2010-11 academic year.

With opening reception set for Saturday, Nov. 13, from 6 – 9
p.m., Bayindir’s


is described as “comprised of a suite of posters, an installation, a
short movie, and several ‘process photographs’ all made with the least
possible intervention of computer manipulation.”

The posters and the video are created by hand in three-dimensional space
and then documented; his installation gives a window into viewing his
design process.

According to Gallery Director Karin Lanzoni, “Within each of these
works, Bayindir takes a very common idea and contextualizes it by
employing the material itself (food, water, clothing) to point to
layered and/or perverse cultural associations.”  

She noted: “The strong and matter-of-fact visual presentations and the
‘re-use’ of materials as typography provoke the spectator into
questioning the common use and meaning of these materials and the
politics of both.”

The gallery
is open Monday through Thursday and Saturdays, from noon to 5 p.m.
Admission is free. For more information, call (323) 343-4040 or e-mail
Lanzoni at
