Headlands Center for the Arts is pleased to present Front + Center, a dynamic group exhibition featuring cutting edge artwork by California artists working in a range of mediums who applied for the 2009 residency program. After six successful years launching its residency season with an annual exhibition, Headlands, in collaboration with Kimberly Johansson, reimagines the show and calls critical attention to these noteworthy California artists.

Front + Center reflects diverse interests among contemporary, emerging artists at both aesthetic and conceptual extremes. While some of these artists embrace blankness, or the void, others relish the notion of horror vacui, or “fear of empty space.” Others focus on Headlands as a physical site, using its architecture and history as subject matter. The exhibition’s title is borrowed from the military lexicon, alluding to Headlands Center for the Arts’ rich military history. Moreover, Front + Center reflects the position of Headlands as both historic and contemporary, off the beaten path yet central. While physically located in the hinterlands of the Bay Area, Headlands is at the center of creative innovation. At the core of Headlands’ mission is the importance of promoting and supporting artists as cultural producers who actively shape the world.

Headlands Center for the Arts provides an unparalleled environment for the creative process and the development of new work and ideas. Through artists’ residencies and public programs, we offer opportunities for reflection, dialogue and exchange that build understanding and appreciation for the role of art in society.
