Your Face In The Mirror… @ Moran Bondaroff, Nov 19 – Dec 17

18 November 2016

The Your Face In The Mirror Isn’t Your Face, Similar To Plastic Silverware group exhibition is on at Los Angeles’ Moran Bondaroff, opening November 19 and running to December 17. 

Featuring 12 artists — including Trevor Shimizu, Steven Baldi, Anna Betbeze, Keltie Ferris and Marisa Takal — artist-curator Torey Thornton introduces the show with a statement, which interrogates the distinction (or lack there of) between representational and abstract art:

“The line between something that is recognizable and that which is less so or not at all can be thin or pushed; furthermore, it could be argued that all things are representational, and simultaneously, all things are abstract.

Thorton notes the exhibition aims to ‘flatten’ the notion of  abstraction, thereby allowing for the works to converse in closer proximity. Other contributors include Louise Fishman, Rosy Keyser, Cady Noland, Annie Pearlman, Odessa Straub, Rose Wylie and Kelly Zutrau.

Mined Control @ As It Stands, Nov 17 – Dec 17

17 November 2016

The Mined Control group exhibition is on at Los Angeles’ As It Stands, opening November 17 and running to December 17.

Organized by Allison Littrell, the show features the work of Alison Veit, Brian Khek, Sara Grace Powell, Marton Robinson, Bunny Rogers and George Egerton-Warburton, and examines what the press release describes as “the hidden origins of the products and images that shape collective memory via pure surfaces.” 

The text goes on to note the systems of control and consumption that make up our physical bodies and questions whether the influence can be reversed: “Can we have an evolution of the utopian cyborgian identity and flip the mirror back onto ourselves?”

See the FB event page for details.**
