As part of GLAMFA, we present our “Shared Resource Room”. Typically, we convert one of our smallest galleries into a lounge area where we share printed materials and videos. This year, we have decided to also create an online space for reference! Academic institutions each have their own unique theoretical and aesthetic lineages. This is our attempt to cross pollinate the different Southern California MFA programs. GLAMFA artists and CSULB grads were asked to contribute books, essays, videos, podcasts, etc. — anything that influences their practices. Please browse our archive below. This page will continue to change and grow as the upcoming GLAMFA 2021 participants, CSULB grads, and other MFA students contribute. (If you would like to contribute, please find the link on the submission page tab or at the bottom of this page).

We hope this page acts a resource for the future.
