Los Angeles, CA (June 13, 2016) – The Downtown Art Center (DAC) Gallery is pleased to announce a summer group show which brings together twelve distinctive practices which attend to shifting forms of corporeal, architectural, and socio-structural contours.
Hailing from a variety of studio and new media backgrounds, and employing a myriad of differing conceptual and aesthetic strategies, this select group of artists and their respective works speak to each other through their attention to the contingent relationships between human cognition and the precariousness of organic and artificial
environments. Implicitly or explicitly, each artist’s practice touches upon an underlying and timeless sense of ambivalence in regards to their psychic and spatial relationships to the materiality of the world, negotiating an enduring yet seemingly urgent sense of estrangement between the spheres of order we construct and those that are beyond our control.
The Summer Group Show will run from July 14th through September 1st, an opening reception will take place on Saturday, July 16th from 6-9PM. The gallery will be open for the July Downtown L.A. Artwalk, on Thursday, July 14th from 11AM-8PM.
Artists: Anna Bae, Carlos Beltran, Jieun Cha, John Cuevas, Meryl Engler, Jeremy Fraser, Shelley Kommers, Autumn Lundberg, Cody Lusby, Naureen Meyer, Francesca Quintano, Abby Sin
Details: Free to attend; light refreshments served; parking available at meters and pay lots (see posted signs for details; note that the DAC Gallery does not validate parking).
