LOS ANGELES\, CA (July 24TH\, 2015) LA Artcore is pleased to announce an exhibit featuring Al Longo and Kathie Foley-Meyer whose distinct approache s in medium and content combine to produce an exhibit of visual contrasts t hat root into the nature of experience. The multimedia installation of Los Angeles-based artist and concept designer Kathie Foley-Meyer centers around photographs and video she shot of ordinary African-American citizens parti cipants in Los Angeles' annual Martin Luther King Parade on the commencemen t of President Barack Obama's election in 2008 and his reelection in 2012. Foley-Meyer's project explores the conditions of representation of African- Americans  \;in North-American culture often from a local perspective.< /p>\n

As many artists can attest to\, much of an artist's immediate and s urrounding environment is consciously and unconsciously channeled into thei r art. As observed by Al Longo\, the artist's perspective shifted both cult urally and geographically upon leaving New York to join the Navy in the mid -1950's. Ending up

LOS ANGELES\, CA (July 30TH\, 2015) In a fascinating survey of evidence for the claim 'op posites attract'\, husband and wife artists Connie D.K. Lane and William La ne are strikingly polarized in their artistic voices\, choice of medium and materials. \; Perhaps there is also a strain of lively competition in there\, as they are prolific and present solid bodies of work. \;

\n

 \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&n bsp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;  \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nb sp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;& nbsp\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \ ; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&nbs p\; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \;&n bsp\; \;

\n

Connie's work is organic\, often appearing to be somet hing you could almost pluck from the earth\, but of such character and invo lved manipulation\, the sort of earthy thing that would made you stop the c ar and investigate in the first place. \; Tendrils\, branches\, fibers and pouches create structures that can only come from an artist deeply inve sted in the expression of the human-nature relationship. \; For a matur e artist who is beginning her career recently\, completing her MFA at CSU L ong Beach in 2011\, we have the opportunity to see where training and exper ience really introduce their own pragmatic momentum.

\n

 \;

\n< p>William Lane\, born in Kalamazoo and long time resident of California\, p roduces work that is by contrast Hard Edge\, working with pure color and fi rm\, succinct line\, and the relationship of color placed adjacently by the artist into a composition. \; Directly calling to mind Josef Albers\, he too pays homage to the square\, but with the more liberal reins of color relationship of Frederick Hammersley or Frank Stella. \; William is no imitator\, he has been teaching art and making this kind of work since the 60's\, and is a living witness\, member and continuation of Hard Edge abst raction which was unveiled just as his own education as an artist was begin ning.

As part of our exhibition\, Jeffrey Vallance: The Medium is the Message\, CB1 Gall ery is proud to present a new performance by the artist entitled Ghost Writ ers. In a sé\;ance performance\, Vallance will work with leg endary psychic Joseph Ross to channel dead art critics interested in review ing the show. In the sé\;ance\, a telepathic call will be sent out to art critics in the afterlife willing to speak out about Vallance&rsquo\;s artwork. And heaven only knows who might manifest! Vallance has worked prev iously with psychics contacting the spirits of Richard Nixon\, Salvador Dal i and Andy Warhol.

\n

The exhibition by Jeffrey Vallance deals with me ssages and images the artist received during a sé\;ance in London in which the artist had five famous European psychics channel five famous dead artists for a panel discussion at the Frieze Art Fair.. Included in the s& eacute\;ance were Leonardo da Vinci\, Marcel Duchamp\, Frida Kahlo\, Vincen t van Gogh and Jackson Pollock. The spirits were asked a series of question s concerning the art market. The Medium is the Message exhibition features a video of the London performance\, Spirits Photos (2012) and Spirit Object s (2015)\, all inspired by the sé\;ance.

\n

Jeffrey Vallance is considered one of the most important artists of his generation to come out of Los Angeles. For nearly four decades\, Vallance has exhibited his work w orldwide to an ever-expanding audience. His highly influential work has ins pired generations of artists and has penetrated into popular culture and me dia. With an emphasis on belief systems\, Vallance &ldquo\;infiltrates&rdqu o\; into numerous cultural institutions often focusing on the museum\, chur ch and state. His work blurs the lines between object making\, installation \, painting\, performance\, writing and curating. Vallance is a Fortean who neither believes nor disbelieves\, but like an anthropologist he reports o n numerous phenomenon.

\n

Joseph &ldquo\;Psychic to the Stars&rdquo\; Ross has appeared on radio and TV talk shows\, doing readings for the studi o audience and has conducted over 50 thousand personal psychic readings. He has been on TV with Uri Geller\, Sylvia Brown\, James van Praagh\, Bonnie Hunt\, Chelsea Handler and Jay Leno. Ross was featured in W Magazine channe ling Salvador Dali and the Underground Museum channeling a transcendent And y Warhol. He has led ghost tours of the Richard Nixon Library (channeling o ur 37th President) and at LACMA where he communed with the disembodied spir its of artists on exhibit. In school\, Ross majored in psychology at UC Irv ine&mdash\;he now is a psychic astrologer.

&ndash\; Raymond Saunders

\n

 \;

\n

Raymond Saunders has been an impor tant presence in American Contemporary Art for over 50 years. \; Freque ntly compared to Cy Twombly\, Robert Rauschenberg and Jean-Michel Basquiat\ , Raymond Saunder&rsquo\;s voice has remained unclassifiable and singular. Unique in its expression\, within each piece his voice is heard in dialogue with itself\; like a freestyle jazz session where various instruments inte ract and respond with chance and intention\, with rawness\, and control.

\n

 \;

\n

His predominantly black paintings combine energetic a nd dissonant mixtures of drawing\, collage\, assemblage and gestural bursts of paint.  \;The personal scribbles\, found objects\, and enigmatic sy mbols are as revealing about his working methods\, as they are subtle in en coding messages about politics\, race and his life experiences as an Africa n American artist. The dramatic black backgrounds provide a dark pictorial space reminiscent of blackboards. Knowledge and information is recorded wit h delicate white chalk-like lines that speak quietly against found objects and images\, constructing narratives that push and pull in different direct ions frequently loaded with double meanings. \; Despite the use of disp arate elements\, the arrangements are unexpectedly elegant. They are a poet ic depiction of what it is like to live in an urban city with a vast array of materials utilized in creating one&rsquo\;s identity. These carefully ch osen materials once discarded by society\, are reused by Raymond to compose lyrically engaged and wise works of art that dismantle cultural hierarchie s and improvise with high and low.

\n

 \;

\n

Raymond Saunders studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the University of Pennsylvania\, earning a B.F.A at Carnegie Institute of Technology in 1960 . In 1961\, he received a M.F.A. from California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland. Saunders has received multiple awards such as the Prix de Rome \, 1964-1966\, and the National Endowment for the Arts Award in 1977 and 19 84\, as well as a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1976. His work is held in numero us collections\, including the Museum of Modern Art\, the Metropolitan Muse um of Art\, the Whitney Museum of American Art\, the Museum of Contemporary Art\, Los Angeles\, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

USC Fisher Museum of Art is pl eased to present Cynthia Minet: Beast of Burden\, a focus exhibiti on of Los Angeles based artist Cynthia Minet\, on view from September 2 thr ough October 10\, 2015. \;

\n

Cy nthia Minet: Beast of Burden features illuminated\, life-size\, mixed media sculptures of domesticated animals from the series &ldquo\;Unsustaina ble Creatures.&rdquo\; The installation draws upon the complicated relation ships and dependencies humans have with the world we inhabit\, in line with Minet&rsquo\;s continued interest in scientific and ecological issues. It also emphasizes the artist&rsquo\;s investigation of materials\, and her ae sthetics in successfully transforming found and repurposed plastics into vi sually compelling artworks.

\n

Works sho wcased in Cynthia Minet: Beast of Burden depict animals rendered i n postures conveying toil and struggle. Lit up with colorful LEDs\, Minet&r squo\;s sculptures are created by cutting up found plastics and bolting the m together\, avoiding any substantial modifications. They thereby function as surrogates for human experience and represent our dependency on petroche micals and electricity. Plastic storage containers\, detergent bottles\, du stpans and even old baby toys are exposed and identifiable for the viewer t o recognize them as what they are while making anatomic references. Minet&r squo\;s singular and visually commanding take on consumerism thus highlight s the burden that disposable culture places on the natural world\, and the need for sustainable resources. \;

\n

The installation will also premiere Minet&rsquo\;s new s eries focusing on raptors. These birds of prey\, long trained for the more exotic sport of falconry\, are currently used in commercial bird eradicatio n programs\, and are flown through vineyards several times a day\, renderin g them almost as domesticated as farm animals. The artist explores this dic hotomy and implications such as the predator drone\, the role of humans as predators\, and the falcon and hawk as symbols of strength and renewal.

\n

Cynthia Minet's artworks have been exhib ited both in the USA and \;internationally. Most recently\, her illumin ated sculptural installations \;have been displayed at the Anchorage Mu seum\, Alaska\, the CDC Museum in Atlanta\, GA\, \;the Muzeo in Anaheim \, CA\, the Los Angeles International Airport\, UC Riverside's Culver Cente r for \;the Arts\, the Huntington Beach Art Center\, the Museum of Natu ral History\, LA\, and at GATE Projects\, Glendale. \;International gro up exhibitions include museum and gallery shows in Venice and Amelia\, Ital y\, \;Minsk\, Belarus\, and in several venues in Israel. Her work has b een reviewed \;and featured on the Discovery Channel's Weird Planet\, W ired Magazine\, FORM \;Magazine\, the Los Angeles Times\, the Anchorage Daily News\, the OC Register\, \;and on numerous blogs online.

A screening of\, \;

Martine Syms\, \;A Pilot for a Show About Nowhere \;(2015)\, 25min
\n
\n

As well as a few select reruns\, from our summer's program.

\n

 \;

\n< div style="text-align: justify\;">On the penultimate week of the show\, we introduce an ongoing work by Helen Marten\, \;visible online\, on your personal devices\, and at your leisure. In her words: \;"Skin is one surface and of one plane. It is dimensionally intelligent\, wraps around us and stops blood from leakin g out - like enamel or glaze on a bathtub\, it is an encasement\, an enclos ing\, a layer." [...] "But substance is not really substance when we observ e it through the screen." \;\n

And on the topic of leisure (or leisure-like activities) we choose this week\, like a commercial interruption\, to think more specifically about th e screen's role in this summer's episodic program\, the screen itself as a mediator\, a record and a witness\, contending with the problem of document ing the "pure presence" of live performances or the slippery forms of langu age. \;

\n
Martine Syms' recent wo rk is a video in essay-form that thinks about our relationship to televisio n as well as \;television's role as an unintentional archivist of its t ime. In her words: \;A Pilot for a Show About Nowhere \;uses th ree key moments-the premiere of Mary Tylor Moore in 1970\, the primetime sc hedule of 1988\, and Google's acquisition of YouTube in 2006-to explore the privately-felt public imagination. A Pilot \;reveals the sitcom as a c omic performance structure with a style and subject matter inextricably lin ked to the production of identity. It collages text\, screencaps\, Scandal gifs\, and excerpts ranging from Amos 'n' Andy' to Girlfriends\, alongside archival footage to \;tell a story about language\, symbol and narrativ e in American culture. \;
\n

 \;

\n

We will also be screening reruns from our summer's program\, reque sts welcome...

\n

We will do our best to \ ;accommodate them.

After living and going to scho ol in Chicago for a few years\, Luke Pelletier went back to his rural-touri st-driven-hometown\, Brevard\, North Carolina\, for a few months to make th e work for his first solo in over three years. Living in a tourist town for much of his life\, he has been heavily influenced by seasonal economies\, as well as the multi-level relationships\, dependence and resentment\, betw een tourists and locals. Much of Luke's art blurs the lines between celebra ting and condemning a culture that \;agrees to be taken advantage of wh ile it takes advantage of others. His \;art is filled with personal ane cdotes\, dark humor\, dualities\, contradictions\, repetition\, and scenes of paradise that are simultaneously pristine and decaying. In his first sol o show in LA\, Tourist Seizin'\, Luke Pelletier uses photography\, painting \, sculpture\, social practice\, graphic design\, writing\, and craft to ri ff on his moral dilemmas with romance\, objectification\, labor\, competiti on\, tourist culture\, capitalism\, addiction\, free will\, masculinity\, f un\, and Americana.

Jagged Negotiations< /em> \;deals with awkward \;transitions\, smash ups\, and disturban ces. Each of the artists grapples with uncomfortable spaces and \;cacop hony. Megan Flanders intervenes in the digital transmission of canonic work s by women\, making the viewer hyper aware that history is a construction w hile encouraging its disruption. Inserting feminist voice and personal reve lation \;into the binary code of works such as Vigé\;< /em>e Lebruns' portrait of hated queen\, Marie Antoinette tentatively posin g in the nursery in a futile attempt to remind agitated rebels of her duty fulfilled\, Flanders' gesture serves as spontaneous record scratch in the s wirling dialogues of gender equality and artistic emergence. Chet Glaze act ively observes the conflation of \;textures and surfaces amidst the "Ha ppiest Place on Earth\," put off by the inability to interact with exquisit ely crafted objects such as the miniature Edwardian neighborhood in the Pet er Pan ride\, and the contrarily schlocky constructions on the facade of It 's a Small World. Glaze's intent focus on such awkward transitions (citatio n needed) magnify signs of disorder that are surprising given how contrary they are to Disneyland's branding. Julie Shafer's work navigates the rough political terrain of oil dredging in the \;Louisiana \;bayou. As if stealing a peek behind the theme park facades of Glaze's unnoticed decay\, Shafer's psychologically powerful (red) photographs also compel revolt. At once aesthetically gorgeous and terribly difficult\, the viewer is confron ted with Orwellian infrastructure that exploits and rapes in robotic bombas t. \;The landscape that she navigates exhibits silent wounds - a Native American island whose oil is literally being dredged out from underneath i ts borders\, that has resulted in the continuing collapse of the land into the toxic waters surrounding it
