Space 4 Art
Through a Glass, Darkly
Space 4 Art presents the work of Shana Demassi, Ana Teresa Fernandez, and Erika Ostrander. Using materials as disparate as tar, hair, and glass, the presented works deal with sense and immediacy through performance, sculpture, and projection. These common substances morph beyond their familiar forms and ask the viewer to reconsider notions of reflection and transience.
Exhibition runs August 16 to September 6.
Shana Demassi was born in San Diego and has lived and worked in Italy, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, where she obtained her BFA from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. She is currently completing her MFA at UCSD.

Her work has been exhibited at the Tijuana Biennial in Mexico, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, and the Oakland Art Museum, among others.
Erika Ostrander was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She received her BA and MA from California State University Northridge and is currently completing her MFA at UCSD. Erika has exhibited her work in Los Angeles, New York, Santa Ana, and San Diego.
Occupying 23,000 square feet in the East Village, S4A has room for over 1000 guests, along with studio space for 30+ artists, some of whom live on the premises. With all that content being generated, Space 4 Art offers several events every week, ranging from cutting-edge dance fusion to kids’ puppet shows. Open to the public during the day, even when major events aren’t happening.
