About the Project: Off Peak is a collaborative public practice project centered around oil field remediation of the Inglewood Oil Field in Los Angeles with the Bulbo Collective. For the Off Peak project, Bulbo will collaboratively produce a series of media-based community workshops based in and around Baldwin Hills, including local community participants as well as researchers from the University of California.

About the Artist: In addition to teaching the history of photography, experimental film, video art, and new media at New York University for the past five years, Kenneth Rogers comes to UCR as the former director and head curator of the Maiden Lane Exhibition Space in lower Manhattan from 2000-2003 and is the co-founder of Chatham Arts, a new exhibition space in Pittsburgh, PA. His recent research reevaluates artists’ film and video production in the U.S. between 1965 and 1975. He maintains that this body of work destabilized philosophically grounded and self-contained interpretations of media ontology through the strategic use of open textuality.
