The Mills College Art Museum is pleased to announce the 2016 Art + Process + Ideas (A+P+I) exhibition on view from June 22 through August 28. This artist-in-residence program at Mills College was launched in January 2015 and fosters interdisciplinary collaboration. The exhibition showcases the work of second round artists to the program—Carrie Hott, K.r.m. Mooney, and Surabhi Saraf. Each of these artists brings with them a unique approach to art making and a commitment to research that compliments an academic setting. The A+P+I residency culminates in this summer exhibition at the Mills College Art Museum, which features new work created by the artists while in residence.

Working with video, installation, and sculpture, these artists explore questions around site and materiality through diverse artistic approaches. Using lace from MCAM’s collection, Carrie Hott explores the idea of creating structure to support fugitive objects. K.r.m. Mooney’s subtle interventions into the museum’s architecture explore the intersection of objects, bodies, and space. Surabhi Saraf’s video engages the idea of immobile intensities through slow movement of the human body.

Carrie Hott is an interdisciplinary artist. She has recently exhibited at Interface Gallery, Southern Exposure, and the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, as well as presented public programs at the Oakland Museum of California and the International Symposium on Electronic Arts in New Mexico. In 2009, with artist Elizabeth Bernstein, Carrie Hott co-founded the Royal NoneSuch Gallery, in Oakland, CA and in 2013 co-founded a long-distance collaborative space in Queens, NY called Ortega y Gasset Projects. Hott’s permanent project, The Key Room, at the Headlands Center for the Arts opened in 2016.

K.r.m. Mooney has exhibited at venues such as Pied-a-terre, Ottsville, PA; The Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco, CA; Hester, New York, NY; Altman Siegel, San Francisco, CA; Supplement, London, England; Andeas Huber, Vienna Austria; among others. In 2014, they participated in Yerba Buena Center for the Arts’ Bay Area Now 7 with Oakland artist-run space n/a. Their work has been written about for Artforum, Contemporary Art Daily,, Mousse, and Art Practical.

Surabhi Saraf is a media artist, composer, and performer. Saraf has performed solo at Thessaloniki Contemporary Art Biennial, Greece; Currents International New Media Festival, Santa Fe, NM; San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, San Francisco; and Max Mueller Bhavan Goethe Institut, Mumbai & New Delhi. Her videos have been shown at Times Square, New York; the Hunter Museum of American Art, Chattanooga, TN; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Vojvodina, Serbia; and have been screened at video art festivals internationally. Saraf’s work has been featured in The New York Times, Time Out Sydney & Mumbai, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Blouin Art Info, Art Practical, and KQED Arts.

The 2016 A+P+I Artist Residency is supported through the generosity of Miranda Leonard, the Helzel Family Foundation, and the Coleman Charitable Foundation.
