Southern Exposure at Ruby Green

Southern Exposure is a sampler of drawings by 15 southern California artists. The curator Mery Lynn McCorkle is originally from Georgia and has observed the parallels between work executed in California and in the South. Both areas are extremely influenced by nature, its colors, textures and rhythms. This exhibit provides an opportunity for residents of Nashville to see preparatory sketches and studies as well as finished work by some of southern California's most interesting artists.

The Nature of LA

Traywick Contemporary is pleased to present The Nature of LA, an exhibition featuring four Los Angeles-based painters whose work is brimming with social and environmental awareness. As a group, the work reflects an enchantment with the life of the natural world while addressing the paradoxical experience of the contemporary American landscape...

Texas native Andre Yi explores the precarious relationship between architecture and the landscape. His delicate renderings of crumbling, solitary buildings float ghost-like, in monochromatic color fields. The spare landscapes create beauty out of something wasted and remind us of nature's awesome ability to reclaim the land after civilization's departure.

Close to Home: Recent Acquisitions from the Permanent Collection MCASD

Close to Home acquisition

Close to Home features works on paper from MCASD’s collection acquired in the last four years. The exhibition showcases the collection's depth and range with works by artists such as Faiya Fredman, Mauro Staccioli, and John Baldessari.

Highlighting the Museum’s commitment to artistic practice, the exhibition emphasizes the relationship between purely enjoying art and using an investigative eye. Each piece asks the viewer not to be complacent in consumption of images but critically interact with them. The exhibition follows a progression of redefining common ideas about portraiture, American culture, inhabited space, and the beauty of nature. Whether it is an alternative concept of American lifestyle, as seen in Alexis Smith’s work, or spatial configuration, like the pieces by Yunhee Min, we are asked to critically examine the individual ideas we often hold so close to home.

Floating Worlds at Branch Gallery

Branch Gallery is pleased to present Floating Worlds: Kyung Jeon, Taiyo Kimura, kozyndan, Andre Yi.

In 19th-century Japan, “Floating World” referred not only to the urban underworld, but also the images connected to it: ukiyo-e (or “pictures of the floating world”). Like this earlier visual form—closely associated with metropolitan culture, its isolated pleasures and a love of nature and landscape—the four artists in Floating Worlds create alternate realities in their work, twisting convention and our expectations in a range of media. The result is at times humorous, disturbing, and surreal; familiar even in its strangeness.

Solo Show at Carl Berg Gallery, Los Angeles

God to Gold card

In his third solo show with the gallery, Andre Yi explores American mining towns of the late-nineteenth century west. As in his previous work, Yi illustrates his interest in landscape and architecture and the relationship between them. Defined by expanses of color on the canvas, the landscape is minimal, only offering such elements as spruce and pine tree lines that play on the surface of the canvas. The architecture of mining towns is stripped of the aesthetic forms and considerations that make up modern architecture. These mines and buildings were created for the sole purpose of extracting a finite quantity of ore, and when these resources are gone, so goes the town. The beauty of these mines and buildings are captured in Yi’s paintings, but as in nature, these structures become reabsorbed by its environment.

Fair Exchange - Millard Sheets Gallery

The exhibition will feature examples of the newest and most innovative artworks by artists who live and work in the Los Angeles area, who also happen to produce artwork that in some way relates to the activities for which fairs are known. Many contemporary artists are bringing contemporary aesthetics and practices to traditional craft, design, the home arts, and even agriculture—all subjects celebrated at the L.A. County Fair. This cultural exchange provides an exciting opportunity for these artists to work in tandem with some of the Fair’s other more traditional exhibitors in locations throughout the Fair. This exhibit also has the potential to demystify the world of contemporary art, and to help make this art meaningful and relevant to the Fair’s 1.3 million annual visitors.

Showing at Palm Springs Art Museum of L.J. Cella Collection

Today most architects rely on the computer for their drawings, but many still enjoy sketching freehand to express their ideas. The hand of the architect, like the hand of an artist, reveals the thought process–the development of initial concepts that will be fully conceived later in architectural renderings. This exhibition contains drawings by Frank Gehry, Daniel Libeskind and Richard Neutra as well as site specific drawings by Robert Irwin, Chris Burden and Lawrence Halprin.

Solo Show at Galerie Schuster and Scheurman, Berlin

Train Station 2005

This body of work depicts the architecture and natural wonders in and around Death Valley, Panamint Valley and Amargosa Valley, California. At once beautiful and foreboding, the desolate and mysterious landscape, dotted by mining structures and architectural ruins, suggest a beauty whose extreme nature has pushed humanity back beyond its borders. The desert that once supported towns filled with miners in search of borax, salt and gold, is left only with visitors exploring and re-exploring this vast landscape.
