Thinkspace is pleased to present Vanguard\, an exciting group exhibition of new works by the gallery's es tablished artists\, and by recent additions to its roster. This special exh ibition will provide a curated glimpse into the New Contemporary Art Moveme nt with a dynamic selection of artwork representing the diverse range of it s artists and their practices. These artists are unified by the shared inte nt to create exceptional artwork that speaks relevantly to contemporary cul ture. Distilling inspiration from a variety of sources including illustrati on\, pop culture\, comics\, street art\, and graffiti\, the New Contemporar y Art Movement culls its content from the world and presents imagery satura ted with powerfully populist forms. As a movement with its beginnings firml y grounded in Los Angeles\, Thinkspace has been a significant conduit and c atalyst for its expansion worldwide. While it is young\, New Contemporary A rt has gained traction and recognition the world over and continues to esta blish itself as a potentially inveterate art movement with a steadily evolv ing history. 

\n

Vanguard will feature artwork by Thinkspace artists Allison Sommers\, Derek Gores\, Kevin Peterson\, Kikyz 1313\, Sarah Joncas\, Seth A rmstrong\, Shark Toof\, and Yosuke Ueno\, and will also include wo rks from recent gallery additions: Curiot from Mexico\, NoseGo from Philadelphia\, Jeremy Enecio from Brooklyn\, and Halsey Swain from Portlan d. Each artist imparts their own unique and unrepeatable contribut ion to the movement in keeping with its core tenets of accessibility and co ntemporaneity\; their work speaks democratically in a relatable way\, and d raws from the realities of the contemporary culture in which we are all imb ricated. As an art movement that seeks to reflect popular cultural forms ra ther than to exclude them\, the New Contemporary Art Movement is unified by its diversity and its appeal to shared sensibilities and social currencies . An aggregate of distinct and yet concomitant voices\, each exponent is di fferent and informed by his or her own vision\, but each resonates with a d esire to show the viewer something identifiable\, real\, imminent\, and fir mly grounded in the now.Vanguard will present an inspired cross-section of these exceptional and varied talents\, offering a rare opportunity to hear their voices in unison.
