Survey West Collaborative was started by Jill Newman and Bari Ziperstein in 2010. We were both educated in West Coast art and conceptualism at CalArts, and together we examine the intersections of progress, ingenuity and architecture through art production, curation and educational outreach. The duo’s first curatorial project is Site as Symbol at the Fellows of Contemporary Art (FOCA) in 2011. The project is funded by FOCA’s Curator’s Lab Award and includes two site-specific events: Evening of Projections with Pat O’Neill and Plying the P.E. Trail with Claude Willey. SWC debuted their first public art project, This House Has a Bright Future, at Side Street Projects in 2011. It includes a series of children’s workshops and is made possible in part by the Pasadena Arts & Culture Commission and the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division.
