Call + Response:
Between You & Me: Constance Hockaday and Laurel Braitman
Thursday, November 8, 2018
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
701 Mission St. in SF


Between You & Me is a series of dialogic exchanges between artists and their collaborators and peers to materialize the countless conversations, musings, and debates that are often invisible yet play a significant role in the generative space of artmaking.

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.

This program is organized as part of an editorial column published online by Art Practical with support from the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, a private family foundation dedicated to enhancing quality of life by championing and sustaining the arts, promoting early childhood literacy, and supporting research to cure chronic disease.


About Constance Hockaday

Constance Hockaday’s work is about creating portals that get people closer to the water and nature, and closer to that feeling of belonging in a place (preferably the place where they live). Hockaday has most often looked to water as a place for hosting social sculptures and immersive experiences. She believes the shoreline is a place where many human and non-human interests collide.

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.
