‘So-so’ marks an in-between state, the contents of which are unremarkable yet not so unremarkable as to warrant remark. It is much easier, we find, to turn to what visibly glitters.

But imagine the terrain in all its lackluster familiarity.

Now, in its gaping familiarity.

What is lost to it? And what can be resurrected?

‘So-so’ marks a state of potentiality, a shifting and grappling for more. We invite an understanding of ‘so-so’ as a progression, not an end; and an appreciation for those things teetering between convictions. Things neither good nor bad, neither a success nor a failure, neither true nor false, but nonetheless things that suggest a challenge.

Please join the UC Berkeley Department of Art Practice for ‘so-so’the Spring 2015 Honor’s Studio Exhibition at Worth Ryder Art Gallery. Each semester a select few junior or senior art majors who are creating outstanding work are chosen for the Honor’s Studio Program by the Department of Art Practice Faculty. They are awarded access to a shared studio space in Wurster Hall, and at the end of each semester they prepare a project for exhibition in the gallery.
