Conrad MeyersExecutive Director
Conrad Meyers is an artist, educator, and advocate for the visual arts. Trained in architecture and engineering, and later in sculpture and video, Meyers works in a variety of media, technologies, and scale in his projects. Meyers is a supporter of experiential artwork in the Bay Area, that is to say, visual artwork that needs to be physically observed to be fully appreciated. He fundamentally believes that the importance of visual art is the present-tense interaction between art and viewer that creates a nonreplicable conversation that has the ability to profoundly change a human being’s relationship with the world. In 2011, he co-founded Aggregate Space, an Oakland non-profit video and installation gallery, screening facility, fabrication shop, and design studio. In addition to being the director of the gallery programming, Meyers curates their film series and conducts lectures on film history and its popular cultural significance. Currently he is visiting faculty at the San Francisco Art Institute, where he teaches Beginning Video and Computer Aided Design for Sculpture, and has regular fabrication contracts with several Bay Area art institutions. He also serves on the advisory board of Root Division, the governing board of the (BAASICS) Bay Area Art & Science Interdisciplinary Collaborative Sessions, and is formerly the Board President of Oakland Art Murmur.
