KaleidoLA Speaker Series: Michael Ano, Artist, Art Educator, Curator

Contemplating the transmission of ideas and its correlative relationship to systems of power- Ano makes alternative platforms for information distribution, to explore how ideas and people connect to ask whether pedagogical methods can more fully democratize the diffusion of learning, and to conduct critical thought experiments in deconstructing how resources associated with social stratification are codified. Ano is the co-founder of Catalyst Gallery at University of California, Irvine from 2005-2007. From 2008-2013 he led ASAP (after school arts program) a nomadic arts education collective modeled after the grade school programs of the same name. In 2017 Ano launched Deep Time University, a para-graduate school hosted by UC San Diego and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego.  Ano has mediated projects at Visual Communications, Outpost for Contemporary Art, Otis College of Art and Design, the New Museum's Ideas City, and Slanguage's Third World Creative.  His work has been exhibited at the Torrance Art Museum, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Sea and Space Explorations, and the San Diego Art Institute. He has worked organizing educational programs and outreach at the Orange County Museum of Art, the Norton Simon Museum, the New Museum, University of California, San Diego, and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego.
