The Draw and Bass Duets are a series of collaborative multimedia performance pieces by interdisciplinary artist and alumni Trevor Tubelle and musician Richard Worn. Using a combination of double bass sounds and vocalizations by Worn and gestural drawing marks, sounds, and body movements by Tubelle, the artists reverberate within various thematic structures (Quotidian Rhythms, Tension & Ease, etc.) while weaving improvisational riffs and unexpected antiphonal fusions in close proximity on a resonant, drum-like platform before a live audience.
Trevor Tubelle is a San Francisco-based interdisciplinary artist working with hybrid forms of drawing, painting, printmaking, mixed media and performance. He received his BA from Berkeley in 1996. He has gone on to regularly teach at Stanford University (Continuing Studies Program) and has taught at Stanford Arts Institute (Honors in the Arts Program) and UC Santa Cruz, among others, and his work is included in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Richard Worn, bassist, hails from Los Gatos and has been in contact with the double bass for forty-four years. He is Principal Bass with the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players, the San Jose Chamber Orchestra, UC Berkeley's Eco Ensemble, and Assistant Principal Bass with the Marin Symphony and adjunct faculty at the UC Berkeley music department since 2001.

Liminal Space is the space in between. It is the boundary itself. The graduating seniors of the Department of Art Practice at UC Berkeley stand at this boundary as they exit the walls of this institution and venture into the unknown. Where they stand, they realize the opportunity that art offers for reflection. Turning their attentions inside, to their hopes, to their peers, to their nightmares, to their media, they question what it all means. Join them in their questioning: The UC Berkeley 2019 Senior Thesis Exhibition, Liminal Space is open Monday through Thursday, from noon to 4 PM
