Reimagine: Art and Design for the End of Life
The public is invited to join California College of the Arts students and faculty for a special evening of film, art, design and music during Reimagine End of Life.
CCA will host a film screening of the new Netflix documentary “End Game” and a Q+A with director and CCA Film Co-Chair Rob Epstein. Following the film will be presentations by Seattle-based architect Katrina Spade of Recompose; Stockholm-based interaction designer and author of “Ends” Joe Macleod; and Caitlin Campbell of Columbia University’s DeathLAB to present their Constellation Park project.
We will begin the evening with an informal reception, an exhibition of student, faculty and alumni art and design work, a funeral playlist workshop with Juan Luna-Avin, student design prototypes, and a live performance by the Threshold Choir to help visitors experience how music can bring comfort to the dying.
CCA’s larger goal is to take the end of life discussion beyond the healthcare and spiritual realms into the creative realm where artists and designers are creating work designed to help people have more meaningful end of life experiences and to hold the memory of those who have died. When we create for the end of our lives, we are actually making work that supports all of life’s moments, and in doing so we are fulfilling one of CCA’s missions to Make Art that Matters.
