Barbara Stauffacher Solomon in conversation with James Voorhies, CCA Chair of the Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice, and Vee Moran, publisher of Owl Cave Books, about her two new books Making the Invisible Visible and Read any Good Boots Lately (Owl Cave Books).

Call + Response is an open invitation to Bay Area cultural producers in fields of design, architecture, humanities, civic affairs, urban planning, and more who want to connect with Curatorial Research Bureau to insert their ideas into the public realm for dialogue. The format speaks to a long history of democratic participation, projecting thoughts and ideas in public gatherings where speaking and listening—call and response—are equally valued as essential parts of public discourse.

About Barbara Stauffacher Solomon

Barbara Stauffacher Solomon is a San Francisco based artist, graphic and landscape designer, and writer. Her work mixes Californian Pop with Swiss Modernism into California Cool. In the 1960s, at The Sea Ranch, she created SUPERGRAPHICS where supersized contentless stripes, arrows, and letterforms fly from one wall to the next to the ceiling to become art people can walk into.

About CCA's Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice
CCA’s Graduate Program in Curatorial Practice is newly relocated to Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, a dynamic arts institution in downtown San Francisco. The move projects learning beyond the walls of the academy, taking advantage of the rich cultural context of the Bay Area and providing a unique environment for training curators. Graduate seminars are held at YBCA inside the Curatorial Research Bureau, a combined bookshop, academic site, and public program where students intersect with changing book inventories, participate in programs, and meet visiting practitioners from the Bay Area and beyond.
