While Hokin is a young LA based artist, Margaret Nielsen has been actively showing in Southern California since the 1970s. Despite their distinctive approaches to painting, both share an interest in images and archetypes, that in conjured from the depths of their psyche, put into question our own reality.</div> <p style="text-align: justify;"><br />With a background in both art and psychology, Margaret Nielsen mines the collective unconscious for characters that poignantly speak of the human condition. In&nbsp;<em>Lure</em>, the image of the bird stares at its mirror reflection held by a foreboding hand. While the recurring image of the bird can be seen as the personification of our own relationship with mortality, other works similarly speak of our fragility and the impending effects of nature's collision with culture.<br /><br />Margaret Nielsen was born in Alberta, Canada, and currently resides in Ventura, California. She received her BFA from California Institute of the Arts, and her MA in art therapy from Loyola Marymount University. She has shown extensively in United States, including the Schneider Museum of Art, the Gibbs Museum of Art, Santa Monica Museum of Art, Artists Space, NY, Rena Branstein Gallery and AsherFaure. Her work can be found in a number of collections, such as the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the Madison Art Center in Wisconsin. She is also a recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts and the Beaubourg Foundation Fellowship.</p> Thu, 28 Aug 2014 09:29:11 +0000 - Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) - September 5th 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">A conversation with the curators, Pettena and Pentagon, the architecture collaborative of Tyler McMartin, Paul Stoelting, Dale Strong, and Paul Trussler that designed the exhibition&rsquo;s central environment.

Mosley&rsquo;s lush figurative paintings sample liberally from history, literature, and fantasy; they frequently reference commedia dell&rsquo;arte, carnival, shamanism, and the figure of the fl&acirc;neur. Beyond these inspirations, the content of Mosley&rsquo;s work is shaped by his ruminations on his own imaginative and intuitive studio process. As he builds jewel-toned worlds within the frame of the canvas, his marks, figures, and motifs evolve into new and ever vibrant species of painting.<br /><br />The exhibition &ldquo;Band of None&rdquo; assembles a group of outsiders and performers. The psychological portrait of the same title features a band of musicians or a collective of colleagues, none of whom subscribe to a definite leader or set of rules. Stories about these character-types&nbsp;describe them as outlaws and rebels. In Mosley&rsquo;s paintings, the impulse to mythologize is transformed into a dreamy aesthetic where characters oscillate between hero and anti-hero, folk legend and beautiful stranger.<br /><br />While Mosley&rsquo;s paintings are not tied to specific locations or time periods, their inhabitants feel more at home in the street fairs and stages of the 18<sup>th</sup>&nbsp;and 19<sup>th</sup>&nbsp;century than in our contemporary world. However, their colorful garments, elaborate hats, and bouffant hairdos&nbsp;are punctuated with glowing neon accents that place the work decidedly in our time. And yet, the viewer cannot be sure of these figures; they repeat and dissolve into hue and pattern as though a blistering heat wave is producing a Fata Morgana.<br /><br />Ryan Mosley lives and works in London and Sheffield, UK. He graduated with an MA from the Royal College of Art, London. Recent solo exhibitions include Alison Jacques Gallery, London, UK; Eigen + Art, Berlin, Germany; and Grand Arts, Kansas City, MO. Selected group exhibitions include S1 Artspace, Sheffield, UK; Modern Museum, Hungary; City Gallery, Prague, Czech Republic; Royal Academy of Arts, London, UK; State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia; The Saatchi Gallery, London, UK; and the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide. Mosley&rsquo;s paintings are included in the Arts Council Collection, UK, the Saatchi Collection, and the Falckenberg Collection.&nbsp;Ryan Mosley is represented by Alison Jacques Gallery, London, UK.</p> Thu, 28 Aug 2014 08:56:18 +0000 Todd Gray - Meliksetian | Briggs - September 11th - October 18th <p><span style="font-size: small;"><strong>Todd Gray</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: x-small;"><strong><em>Terribleness</em></strong></span></p> <p><strong><strong>September 11&nbsp; - October 18, 2014&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </strong>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>Opening reception: Thursday September 11th 6-9pm</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Anna Meliksetian and Michael Briggs are pleased to present &ldquo;Terribleness&rdquo;, an exhibition of new works by Los Angeles based artist <strong>Todd Gray</strong>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Gray&rsquo;s works are comprised of photographs gathered from his own archive and recontextualized via their juxtaposition with one another and the use of antique frames as a structuring device. The current body of work stems from Gray&rsquo;s artistic investigation, begun in 1989 with Alan Sekula at Cal Arts for his MFA thesis exhibition, which focused on Gray&rsquo;s extensive archive of Michael Jackson photographs he took during his time as Jackson&rsquo;s personal photographer in the 1990&rsquo;s. Recent conversations with artist Carrie Mae Weems and film-maker John Akomfrah on the subjects of history, the archive, and the legacy of the late cultural theorist Stuart Hall, led to a reinvestigation of the subject.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In this latest body of work, the fourth examination of this archive, Gray has re-imagined and literally re-framed the photos of Jackson together with his documentary work from Ghana, where he maintains a studio, using weathered, antique frames that once hung on the walls of homes in South Los Angeles. Gray resists the viewer&rsquo;s desire to see a cohesive and complete likeness of Jackson, showing instead detailed fragments of his body, and juxtaposing them against images of African people and Ghanaian architecture. The framed photos, collaged on the wall, overlap and stack on top of one another, scattered high and low, creating a visual cacophony of low relief, photo-sculpture.&nbsp; This resulting work is autobiographical, and uses the language and signifiers of popular culture and spectacle to draw in the viewer, blurring the boundaries of pop culture and fine art, aesthetics and rational structure and refusing to collapse into a simple binary opposition. The work investigates how popular culture disseminates fixed narratives through photography in mass media and makes visual the complexities and contradictions of life and meaning in the African Diaspora.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Todd Gray</strong> <em>(b. 1954) received both his BFA and MFA from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts).&nbsp; He works in multiple formats including photo-based works as well as sculpture and performance.&nbsp; Recent solo and group exhibitions include the Luckman Gallery, Cal State University, Los Angeles, Studio Museum, Harlem, NY, USC Fisher Museum of Art, Los Angeles, California African American Museum, Los Angeles, Tucson Museum of Art, Detroit Museum of Art, Renaissance Society, University of Chicago among others.&nbsp; Performance works have been presented at institutions such as the Roy &amp; Edna Disney Cal/Arts Theater, REDCAT, Los Angeles, Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, and the Japanese American National Museum, Los Angeles. A partial list of Gray&rsquo;s work in public collections includes the National Gallery of Canada, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the University of Connecticut and the Studio Museum, Harlem.</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>&nbsp;</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">For further information and images, please contact:</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;, +1 323 828 4731</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Gallery Hours: Tuesday to Saturday 12 pm &ndash; 5 pm</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> Wed, 27 Aug 2014 23:10:44 +0000 Stephen Wilkes - Peter Fetterman Gallery - September 27th - January 3rd, 2015 <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="td1" valign="top"> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;">Peter Fetterman Gallery is pleased to present&nbsp;<em>Day to Night</em>, the acclaimed global series from American photographer Stephen Wilkes. The exhibition will include a selection of large-scale color prints from the project and will feature the debut of several new works.</p> <p class="p2">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;"><em>Day to Night&nbsp;</em>is an ongoing photography project that visually narrates the events and human activity of an entire day into the night. Using a uniquely innovative photographic process, the images are created by photographing from one camera angle for up to 15 hours, continually observing and capturing thousands of specific moments. Taken in some of the world's most famed locations, Wilkes narrates a visual story as time passes by. A select group of these moments are then painstakingly blended into one seamless photograph, a process that takes several months. The final result captures the changing of time within a single frame.&nbsp;</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Wed, 27 Aug 2014 01:27:25 +0000 Miri Chais - USC Fisher Museum of Art - September 17th - November 17th <p><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE</span></strong></p> <p align="center"><strong>The USC Fisher Museum of Art Presents: <em>RE: MIND</em></strong></p> <p align="center"><strong>A Solo Exhibition by Artist Miri Chais</strong></p> <p align="center"><strong>September 17 &ndash; November 15, 2014</strong></p> <p align="center"><strong style="text-align: left;"><em>Miri Chais uses multi-media sculptures to explore the tension</em></strong></p> <p align="center"><strong><em>between technology, humanity and nature</em></strong><strong><em>.</em></strong></p> <p align="center"><span style="text-align: left;">Opening reception for Miri Chais exhibition&nbsp;</span><a style="text-align: left;" title="" href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><em>Re:mind</em></a></p> <p align="center"><strong><em>Tuesday, September 16, 6:30-8:30pm</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Los Angeles, CA (August 25<sup>th</sup>, 2014) </em><strong>- </strong>Opening September 17th, <a href=";" rel="nofollow"><em>USC Fisher Museum of Art</em> </a>is proud to present,&nbsp;<a href=";" rel="nofollow"><em>Miri Chais. Re:mind</em></a>, a site specific exhibition by contemporary artist, <a href=";" rel="nofollow"><em>Miri Chais</em></a>.&nbsp;In her first solo museum exhibition in the US since moving to Los Angeles in 2012, Chais reflects on the increasingly porous boundaries between the physical world and augmented reality in today&rsquo;s society, as well as the future of life and mankind in this age of technological evolution.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Through this exhibition, Chais explores questions about the impact that new technology will have on humanity in the very near future. She asks, <em>"If we are programmed like computers, then what differentiates a man from a machine? We will create artificial memories, and master complex skills instantaneously. And what becomes of the human soul, sum of a person's knowledge and experience?"</em> <strong><em>Miri Chais Re:mind&nbsp;</em></strong>takes the viewer through the intersection of the physical and digital world.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Brand new works featured in this exhibition include:&nbsp;<strong><em>Recall to Mind</em></strong>,&nbsp;a group of white ghostly sculptural heads, some with a video screen on their sides, emerge anonymously from a white sterile wall to disrupt the silence of the surface and blur the lines between human and machine.&nbsp;<strong><em>On Mind</em></strong>, a series of mixed media works, digitally and manually layered with images on top of an MRI scan, explores the intersection between technology, individual state of mind, and thought. Sculptures, <span style="text-decoration: underline;">American Eagle</span>&nbsp;and <span style="text-decoration: underline;">Raven</span>, created with bird skull replicas, feature looping videos of a perpetual and never completed chase.&nbsp;<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Prism Pyramids</span>, a sculpture made up of diamond shaped pyramids housing illuminated objects, and exploring physical limitations, time, death, and memorialization in the new technological landscape.&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Originally from Israel, Chais has created numerous artworks that explore the tension between technology, humanity and nature.

Cross-Section will trace the common thematic thread binding Moses&rsquo;s prolific and continuous act of painting. In so doing, the philosophical continuity of the artist&rsquo;s disparate visual strategies will be framed, strategies the artist has repeated and contradicted, as his investigation into the painted form has changed direction or reversed course over the past 5 decades. The curatorial perspective, in turn, will provide a rhizomatic framework to Moses&rsquo;s oeuvre &ndash; a genealogy of these strategies &ndash; in place of the conventional, chronological account typically used by institutions to situate an artist&rsquo;s work within historical movements alone.
