FORA.tv Speaker - Analisa Goodin
Analisa Goodin, native to the Bay Area, is a practicing artist and writer entering the throes of her thesis in the Visual and Critical Studies program at CCA. Having lost her home in the Oakland Hills Fire of 1991, Goodin is currently exploring the loss of objects, spaces, and ideals as the subject for her thesis dissertation.
Looking at broader themes of of loss, memory, and recovery, Goodin engages these themes through the contemporary work of such artists as Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Rachel Whiteread, Rebecca Horn, and Bill Viola. These are each artists whose work is, in some way, working to give a voice to the unspeakable, a language to the inarticulable, and a form to the otherwise unseen.
Analisa Goodin's writing on such themes can be found in forthcoming issues of ALARM magazine, and her essay On Borders appears in the catalogue for the 2007 exhibition, "Through the Eyes of Strangers."
