POINT A: a place to start is the first exhibition scheduled at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs' (UCCS) new downtown gallery, GOCA 121. This exhibition is the starting point for an ongoing discussion about contemporary art and culture, facilitated by UCCS. We don't presume to know where these conversations will take us, we simply offer a place to start. POINT A features distinct installations by DeLane Bredvik, Corey Drieth and Izumi Yokoyama.

Each installation is a response to communal spaces and social conventions, both in content and design. The architecture of the space and the viewer's physical relationship to the work creates a forum to discuss the content of each work. POINT A invites visitors into deliberately constructed environments in order to engage with the concepts each artist introduces. From the vapid allure of pop culture, to the battle between individuality and conformity, to a gently constructed personal narrative on family and play, POINT A challenges the viewer to first question and then articulate their place in each installation, by responding intellectually to content and physically to space.
