This group exhibition explores changing social, political and economic relations in the world from the perspective of Southern California artists.
From the Wignall website:
The New World features artists who attended art school in Southern California, but whose outlook, explicitly or implicitly, engages with the changing world as emerging markets grow in economic and cultural prominence. Their work explores the conflicting feelings of fear and optimism elicited by a globalized world and art market, as well as the excitement, fascination, experimentation, uncertainty and displacement that accompanies change.
The New World is curated by Roman Stollenwerk and features work by Isabel Avila, Chris Barnard, Cathy Breslaw, Hugo Crosthwaite, Asad Faulwell, Chuck Feesago, Galeria Perdida, Kaguya, Bianca Kolonusz-Partee, Elleni Sclavenitis and Joe Suzuki.
The opening reception will include light refreshments and entertainment. The exhibition runs through March 16.
