Art & Activism: Drawing the line looks at art as a form of activism and considers different aesthetic strategies that artists have used to address the politically urgent questions of their time.

Dispersed Transmission at Another Year in LA (Online)

I was dreaming that

July 1 - August 31, 2018
http://anotheryearinla.com/2018_RobinHill.htm

Dispersed Transmissions is a new project which continues Robin Hill's investigation of materials and situations that resonate as self-made art works. She has extracted 425 phrases from the New York Times over the course of the past 3 years (some of which first appeared in her piece Weighing Papers, from Hill's solo exhibition There Was, at Lennon-Weinberg in 2017 in New York).

Upon being invited to have her 5th exhibition at Another Year in LA and now an online space, she said, "I decided to translate the phrases into stickers, and place them throughout the landscape of LA. In Dispersed Transmissions, I am interested in subverting the online exhibition into an archive of an action."

To accomplish this distribution process, Hill has invited a handful of LA-based artists, curators and art writers as "co-curators"* - who are documenting the stickers they placed in situ throughout Los Angeles. These photos will be posted on the Dispersed Transmissions exhibition page as they shared by the co-curators continually throughout the two month exhibition.

Andre Yi
Constructions
Opening reception, Sunday, July 9th, 7-9p

Andre Yi creates drawings, sculptures, and collages inspired by the hodge podge post-modern architecture of Southern California. Using a precise technique, Yi creates his work using cast off materials that can be found in the studio and around his environment: tape, twigs, paper trimmings, old drawings, faux painted balsa wood, pencil shavings, and paint scrapings. These works are informed by the ideas of modern architecture being inspired by nature, while at the same time encroaching upon our once natural environment. For instance, just this year the Wilshire Grand Center opened its doors, becoming the tallest building west of the Mississippi (just a few blocks away from the building that previously held that distinction). The building was inspired by the California landscape, and the top of the building directly references Half Dome in Yosemite Valley. Frank Gehry’s Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles stands out because of its organic shape, but is covered in stainless steel. Both of these buildings are in the heart of a major metropolitan city surrounded by miles of concrete and automobiles, but reference and draw inspiration from elements outside their modern/industrial environment. Likewise, Yi, whose studio is located in downtown Los Angeles, creates collages and sculpture inspired from nature, but constructed from studio detritus; milled and plied from more processed materials.

Sanctuary City: With Liberty and Justice for Some

The San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries is pleased to announce the first installment of Sanctuary City, a yearlong exhibition and public program series that delves into topics related to San Francisco's immigration policies, immigrant and refugee populations, and the history of our Sanctuary City status.

For this inaugural Sanctuary City presentation, the SFAC Galleries is pleased to partner with Walter Maciel Gallery, Los Angeles, to bring their critically acclaimed exhibition With Liberty and Justice for Some. Co-curated by Bay Area artist Monica Lundy, this exhibition features over 125 portraits of immigrants to the United States by 100 artists from Los Angeles and the Bay Area. Conceived in response to the presidential election in November, this show is a statement in response to the current administrations' new executive order that blocks citizens from six Muslim-majority countries (Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen) from getting visas for 90 days, and reinstates a temporary blanket ban refusing admission to all refugees for 120 days.

With Liberty and Justice for Some

Yi Keun Chool

7 January - 4 March 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 7th, 6-8pm
http://www.waltermacielgallery.com/

Walter Maciel Gallery is pleased to present With Liberty and Justice for Some, featuring the work of several contemporary artists who have been invited to create portraits of immigrants to the United States. The show is a statement on the many fears surrounding the announcement of our new president elect and a powerful response rejecting the presumed policies that threaten to disrupt basic civil rights.

About Yi's immigrant portrait:

Yi Keun Chool was born in Korea. As a young man, he studied French literature and the French language in Sungkyunkwan University. He served during the Korean War, and after the Korean Armistice Agreement worked in the Korean government translating French documents. He immigrated to America in the early 1970s and had my twin brother and me. He worked as a photographer and soon had his own photography lab. He retired shortly after digital cameras and smart phone technology changed the landscape of consumer photography and left his trade behind.

The DRAWING Show at Loft at Liz's

The DRAWING Show

Drawing is one of the oldest forms of human expression: Over 30,000 years ago, artists drew herds of bison racing across the rock walls of Grotte Chavet. In more recent times, drawings were considered problem-solving exercises, with emphasis on observation and investigation; they were produced as preparation for the more privileged media of painting and sculpture. But today, many artists use drawing as their primary or only art form. "The Drawing Show" focuses on artists whose aesthetic practices focus on drawing.

Inherent Nature

Habitat (no.3)

Traywick Contemporary is pleased to announce Inherent Nature, a group exhibition featuring five West Coast artists who respond to and engage with the physical world through distinct practices. Each artist constructs meaning in their work directly from the societal, cultural and environmental issues that shape our time, and their work comments on the push and pull of nature and culture through the artistic process, dialogue and play of forms.

Andre Yi (Los Angeles) looks to the neighborhood surrounding his studio in the fashion district of LA for inspiration in his recent series of sculptures. His complex and elaborate structures or “habitats” are built from materials, both natural and man-made, that are readily found inside and outside of his studio.

6018 Wilshire

6018 Wilshire

(Los Angeles) -- Edward Cella Art + Architecture is pleased to announce 6018 WILSHIRE for its feature Fall exhibition. The exhibition is a survey of the artists who have exhibited at this iconic Miracle Mile location since its establishment as an art space in 2003, and represents the final exhibition to take place there before the gallery’s planned relocation to a new facility in early 2015. Over the course of eleven years, the location has hosted two galleries and helped anchor a cohort of galleries on Museum Row. 6018 Wilshire pays tribute to the hundreds of artists that have shown in the space in more than a hundred solo and numerous group exhibitions.

Nature Redefined

Nature Redefined engages nature from the viewpoint of a contemporary artist. A time and place in which man and nature battles for position often in confrontation with one another. Each artist reflects directly and/or indirectly this fight pondering man's relationship to nature in contemporary society.
