1301PE is pleased to announce the sixth exhibition with Jorge Pardo and U.S. premiere of Pardo&rsquo\;s D ADS CUBA. This piece debuted in the Havana Biennial at the Centro de Arte C ontemporá\;neo Wifredo Lam. It was both Pardo&rsquo\;s first return t o Cuba since his family left in 1968 and his first work made in Cuba.

Pardo created "DADS CUBA\," during the run of the biennial with the help of a computer routing machine or a CNC machine. Visitors could watch as the paintings were made\, hand painted and hung on the wall. The color p alette references the primal landscapes and hybrid iconography of Cuban art ist Wifredo Lam&rsquo\;s paintings. The textured\, star-shaped paintings fi t together like puzzle pieces. For the final week of the exhibition\, fabri c lamps were hung from the ceiling\, extending the piece into the volume of the room\, linking the wall works to the architecture of the space.

"The work is very dependent on currency\, on emotional currency. It 's not trying to make something out of nothing."

Accompanying DADS CUBA\, Pardo will include a series of new ceramic works. Since 1996\, Pardo has worked with Ceramica Suro creating pots\, tiles and lamps. Pardo seeks to bend\, stretch\, and break the boundaries between sculpture\, inst allation\, design\, and dé\;cor thus upsetting art&rsquo\;s tradition al dichotomy of high and low. This can be seen in his monumental hacienda w ork\, Tecoh (2012)\, or temporary installation at the Musé\;e des Aug ustins in Toulouse in 2014.

Jorge Pardo was born in Havana\, Cuba. He holds a BFA from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and lives and works between Mé\;rida\, Mé\;xico and New York. Pardo has exhibited widely in various international institutions since his first solo show in Pasadena in 1988. In addition to participating in numerous in ternational group exhibitions\, Pardo has realized many permanent projects\ , including Reading Room at the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam (1996)\, Pier in the Skulptur Projekte in Mü\;nster (1997)\, 4166 Sea V iew Lane with the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (1998)\, Untitl ed (Café\;-Restaurant)\, K21\, Dü\;sseldorf (2002)\, Delegates Di ning Room\, German Parliament\, Paul-Lö\;be-Haus\, Berlin\, (2003)\, Pe nelope\, Liverpool (2004)\, Tecoh\, Yucatá\;n\, Mé\;xico (2008) \, Reinstallation of Latin American Galleries\, LACMA\, Los Angeles (2008-p resent)\, and Streetcar Stop for The City of Portland\, (2013).

He has had major solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago (1997)\, the Museum Boijmans in Rotterdam (1997 )\, The Dia Foundation in New York (2000-2003)\, The Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens in Deurle (2002)\, Fundació\; La Caixa in Barcelona (2004)\, Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami\, (2007)\, K21 in Dü\;sseldorf (2009 )\, Irish Museum of Modern Art in Dublin (2010)\, and The Bronx Museum of t he Arts in The Bronx (2014).

"You can hardly expect an ente rprise whose philosphical underpinnings drew equally from Marx\, Freud and Mao to play out in some tidy fashion. By adopting strategies of esthetic an d political action\, they were able to invest their work with conceptual ri gor. The early explorations of the limits of materials\, the liberating pro cess of doing\, the transgression of boundaries between the event and the p ublic became situations where the works formed links with each other. Whene ver the works confront each other affinities remain apparent."

PUBLIC WORK is the first exhib ition to focus exclusively on L.A. based artist Peter Shire&rsquo\;s public and private architectural commissions. Executed over the course of three d ecades\, the architectural works demonstrate Shire&rsquo\;s understanding o f the formal principles of twentieth century art and architecture collided with his interrogations of popular culture and the vocabulary of visual des ign. Plying graphic forms and structural geometry with radically saturated colors\, Shire&rsquo\;s architectural constructions are high-voltage improv isations of artistic legacy and traditional architectural platforms. The re sulting works exuberantly transform space and environment. \;

\n

The exhibition charts Shire&rsquo\;s commissio ns from his first public entry in the 1984 Olympics (Los Angeles)\, to a 19 90 sculptural installation commissioned by Sapporo Corporation\, Hokkaido\, Japan\, to the most recent 2012 River Park\, Ventura County public art ins tallation. This creative journey will highlight architectural models and sc ulptural elements\, ideation sketches\, finished drawings and paintings\, a nd varied objects of inspiration that have functioned as source material an d propelled Shire&rsquo\;s imagistic installations.  \;

\n

Spanning a career of path-breaking interventions and showcasing Shire&rsquo\;s cross-disciplinary approach to materials and art categories\, the architectural commissions exalt the blending of &ldquo\;f ine&rdquo\; and &ldquo\;applied&rdquo\; art. They celebrate Shire&rsquo\;s knowledge and production of ceramics\, furniture\, sculpture\, drawing and painting\, as all are essential attributes that potently inform Shire&rsquo \;s architectural work and artistic vision.

ACME. is pleased to present "L ocation\," a solo exhibition of new work by Los Angeles based artist Amy Ad ler. The show features life-sized drawings based on photographs taken by th e artist while location scouting for a film. In these oil pastel drawings o n canvas\, Adler turns to the behind the scenes process of filmmaking\, usi ng location shots of children's playgrounds as subject matter.

Amy Adler's works are well known for their interplay between drawing\, ph otography\, and film. Past bodies of work include photographs of her drawin gs. In this process\, the original drawing was destroyed and the final prod uct\, a unique photographic print of the drawing became the original\, ques tioning our notions of authenticity and originality. Since 2005\, Adler has inverted this process by displaying the original drawings\, but always in relation to film and photography. Adler's most recent work includes a short \, first person documentary exploring ancestry through the narrative of chi ldhood fantasy.

Amy Adler was born in 1966 and raised in New Y ork City. She received her BFA from Cooper Union\, her MFA in Visual Art fr om UCLA and her MFA in Cinematic Arts from USC. She has had one person show s at the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles\, the Museum of Contemporar y Art San Diego and The Aspen Art Museum as well as galleries worldwide. He r project\, Amy Adler Photographs Leonardo DiCaprio\, was shown at the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles in 2002. In the spring of 2005 Twin Palms Pre ss released a monograph of her work entitled\, Amy Adler Young Photographer . Her work is included in several permanent collections including The Broad Foundation\, Los Angeles\, The UCLA Hammer Museum\, LACMA and The Museum o f Contemporary Art Los Angeles. Amy Adler currently lives in Los Angeles an d is Professor of Visual Art at the University of California San Diego.

Anat Ebgi is pleased to anno unce the first Los Angeles exhibition of New York based artist Luke Diiorio \, opening \;November 1 \;and on view through \;December 20\, 2 014.
\n
 \;
\n
Luke Diiorio&rsquo\;s paintings are minimal compositi ons made of canvas and linen\, methodically and repeatedly folded in a line ar pattern. The folds of the works conceal much of the fabric&mdash\; the p hysical process of folding leaves only one-third of the material visible. T hrough this process\, Diiorio exposes the potential of repetition within ma terial. Almost completely neutral in color\, the works are either bleached white with faint blotches of pigment or left in their original raw state. T he presentation of the raw material is simultaneously the structure\, surfa ce and composition of the work.
\n
& nbsp\;
\n
Alongside these paintings is an installation of site-specific sculptures of rough interior walls that have been sliced and collapsed upon themselves. These &ldquo\;folded&rdquo \; walls contain all the necessary materials of a functional studded drywal l\, but the structures cease to operate as the objects they resemble. Both the canvas and walls are dissolved of their functional flatness&mdash\; the y can never go back to being a flat surface for other content. Like the can vas and linen of the paintings\, most of the physical material is hidden be neath the surface and becomes an assumed presence\; the invisible as import ant as the visible.
\n
 \;
\n
In an attempt to eradicate all narrati ve content from his work\, Diiorio&rsquo\;s folded compositions exist as an artifact of pure gesture and material. Regardless of the works&rsquo\; dep endence on materiality and process\, the sculptural works are indebted to a n unmistakable presence of the artist&rsquo\;s hand. Drawing from sources l ike Agnes Martin whose hand-drawn gridded pieces appear minimal but are dee ply imbued with indexical traces\, each fold differs slightly from the next . The imperfect handmade quality of the works is something intrinsic\, but faint and barely perceptible. It is through tempo and repetition that the w orks can oscillate between opposites. By balancing the utilitarian and hand crafted\; the visible and the concealed\, Diiorio&rsquo\;s works become at once a dialectic and a tautology&mdash\; each fold a meditative experience.
\n
 \;
\n
Luke Diiorio (b.1983) lives and works in New York and rec eived his MA from the Royal College of Art\, London in 2013. Recent exhibit ions include a solo presentation at Robert Blumenthal Gallery in New York. Forthcoming exhibitions include group shows at Brand New Gallery\, Milan an d Kinman Gallery\, London.

The 2013 -2015 exhibition year at Angels Gate Cultural Cente r marks the beginning of a larger concept that explores our local community ’s stories and personal narratives in the galleries. We hope to generate di alogue about how\, as a community\, we can share and communicate regardless of differing opinions and ideologies. The gallery will be turned into an e xperimental space where art and art-making become part of an ongoing conver sation about the community. Through partnerships with local non-profits\, a rtists\, storytellers and the community at large\, the galleries hope to ca pture a slice of Americana that is unique within our nation and particular to Los Angeles. Artist's work will rotate on an ongoing basis.

Sink or Swim: Designing for a Sea Change explores the human sto ry of resilience\, from adaptation for survival to ambitious infrastructure planning\, in some of the richest and poorest of the world&rsquo\;s coasta l communities. Rather than showing pristine architectural photography\, the photographs present viewers with various human responses to changes in the ir landscapes due to sea level rise.  \;Sink or Swim aims to f oster critical dialogue through the provocative juxtaposition of diverse re sponses to a challenge shared by millions worldwide.

\n

Curated by architec ture writer and radio host Frances Anderton with the Annen berg Space for Photography\, Sink or Swim features newly commissio ned and archival works by photographers Iwan Baan\, Stephen Wilkes\ , Paula Bronstein\, Jonas Bendiksen and Monica Nouwens. This is the first exhibition for Annenberg Space for Photography to feature commissioned works. \; Through the work of this select group of architectural\, fine art and news photographers\, the exhibition casts an eye on both the problem of climate change in densely populated coastal regi ons and contemporary design as a means to navigate the changing landscapes.  \;

\n

&ldquo\;We were eager to organize an exhibition focusing on arc hitecture but adamant that we wanted it to tell the story from a human pers pective\,&rdquo\; says Wallis Annenberg\, Chairman of the Board\, President and CEO of the Annenberg Foundation. \; &ldquo\;We are delighted that these new works tell such powerful stories about resiliency\, climate chang e and architecture as well as engage with viewers on a humanistic level. &n bsp\;The exhibit&rsquo\;s capacity to foster dialogue that offers fresh per spectives on the environmental issues of our day -- and how communities are rising up to meet the challenges -- is very much keeping with the mission of the Photography Space and the Annenberg Foundation.&rdquo\;

\n

In the fa ce of increasing global attention on climate change and rebuilding in the w ake of Hurricane Katrina\, the Indian Ocean tsunami\, Superstorm Sandy\, an d the \;Tōhoku \;tsunami\, Sink or Swim is a timely examin ation of resiliency strategies in architecture and design.  \;Images ra nge from highly complex coastal flood-mitigation in the Netherlands\, contr oversial sea walls in Japan\, to innovative homes and community buildings b y leading architects including Pritzker prize-winners Thom Mayne\, Toyo Ito and Shigeru Ban.

\n

Anderton collaborate d with photographers experienced in capturing fragile built environments to determine the locations\, design projects and communities across the world that served as subjects for the commissioned works in the exhibition. &nbs p\;Sea walls\, floating schools and temporary disaster relief housing in di sparate ecological and social contexts provide concrete starting points for considering questions about nature\, culture and design at the heart of Sink or Swim.

\n

&ldquo\;It has been a privilege to dig into these e xtraordinary photographers&rsquo\; rich archives and also send them back ou t on assignment to create compelling new work that we look forward to shari ng with the public through the exhibition\,&rdquo\; says Anderton.\n

&ldqu o\;Photography is an ideal medium through which to explore climate change a nd the built environment because ultimately this is a human story and the p hotographs get to the emotional heart of that story. Through images of coas tal communities&mdash\;the devastating impact of climate change\, including super-storms and rising sea levels\, and also the varied and innovated des ign solutions&mdash\;Sink or Swim offers visitors the opportunity to engage with and enrich dialogue about all aspects of this predicament.&r dquo\;

\n

An original documentary film commissioned by the Annenberg Space for Photography and produced by award-winning director Steven Kochones and Arclight Productions will include interviews with the artists\, architects\ , historians and scientists engaged with climate resilient strategies for w aterfront communities. \;

\n

A collaboration between the Annenberg Spac e for Photography and the Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands will offer visito rs to Sunnylands a preview of \;select prints from the Sink or Swim exhibition. \; The images will be on display beginning in October 2014 to coincide with a retreat at Sunnylands on the topic of rising sea l evels and ocean acidification. \; An exhibition catalogue will be publi shed by Sunnylands Press for release in December 2014.

The Photo graphers
Following h is experience photographing the celebrated Makoko Floating School (designed by Kunlé\; Adeyemi for the Makoko community on the water near Lagos\ , Nigeria\,) Dutch photographer Iwan Baan was drawn to the lake village of Ganvie in Benin\, where residents have lived on the water for centuries. New work by Baan in the exhibition also includes photographs of the massive Deltaworks sea defenses\; the promenade at Scheveningen nea r The Hague in the Netherlands\, a flood-protection system interwoven with a tourist destination designed by Spanish firm De Solà\;-Morales\; an d the post-tsunami Home-For-All community buildings by Toyo Ito and other l eading architects in Japan.

\n

U.S.-based fine art photographer Ste phen Wilkes revisited communities he first encountered in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy.  \;His images include strik ing aerial photographs that present a unique perspective on infrastructure improvements within the context of natural landscapes that remain susceptib le to flooding. Wilkes also created portraits of New Orleans area residents in the newly built homes\, intended to be models for resilience\, by the M ake It Right Foundation and Global Green in the Lower 9th Ward a nd Holy Cross neighborhoods of New Orleans. One of the first photographers to capture aerial images of the coastline damage following Hurricane Sandy\ , Wilkes documented Staten Island&rsquo\;s Oakwood Beach where homeowners h ave elected to sell their property to the state\, which plans to return the area to wetlands rather than rebuild.

\n

Veteran photojournalist P aula Bronstein traveled to Japan for Sink or Swim and cap tured the immense sea walls now being built off the tsunami-hit coast of Ja pan. She also captured daily life in the storage container structures desig ned by 2014 Pritzker Prize winner Shigeru Ban to house refugees following t he Tohuko earthquake and Tsunami.

\n

Dutch-born\, Los Angeles-based\, photo grapher Monica Nouwens turned her lens on California\, fin ding in the restored Malibu Lagoon a local example of wetlands restoration. She also captures a very human story of denial\, exemplified in a photogra ph of a California woman walking her dogs\, oblivious to a tsunami sign abo ve her head.

\n

Big City Forum (BCF) will occupy the second-floor Mezzanine Galleries at Armory Center for the Arts from Sunday\, July 13 through Sunda y\, December 14\, 2014\, during Phase II of its 15-month residency entitled  \;City of Hope\, City of Resistance: Research and Actions at the U rban Level. With the Armory as a host venue\, BCF\, a project founded by Leonardo Bravo\, will design and build a dynamic reading room/library as a site from which to present three exhibitions\, conduct film screenings\, and hold a series of conversations\, workshops\, and other discursive even ts. The first exhibition\, from Sunday\, July 13 through Sunday\, August 31 \, will feature \;The Queen&rsquo\;s English\, work by Martine Syms with photographer Cat Roif. A reception\, free and open to the public \, will take place on Saturday\, July 12\, from 7-9pm. Big City Forum&rsquo \;s residency \;City of Hope\, City of Resistance: Research and Act ions at the Urban Level \;is being facilitated by Armory&rsquo\;s Gallery Director / Chief Curator Irene Tsatsos.

\n

The City of Hop e/City of Resistance \;reading room/library\, a central element of BCF&rsquo\;s residency at the Armory\, is designed by Los Angeles-based ar tist Jeff Cain of Shed Research Institute to frame and facilitate conversat ions and engagement around the key questions raised during the residency an d meant to serve as a dynamic\, interactive platform for diverse\, shared c reativity. A dynamic\, evolving set of programs within this context\, with special guest contributors\, will be featured in an exhibition format every two months. Programmatic continuity throughout BCF&rsquo\;s occupancy of t he Armory will be in the recommended reading shelf\, comprised of books con tributed by past BCF participants\, with each book to include a small biogr aphy and statement from each contributor.

\n

About Guest Contr ibutors Martine Syms and Cat Roif
Featured guest contributors will be introduced throughout BCF&rsquo\;s occupancy of the Armory. The fi rst of three sets of guest contributors are Martine Syms with Cat Roif\, wh ose work will be displayed from July 12-August 31\, 2014. \;The Que en&rsquo\;s English\, a project by Syms\, takes inspiration from libra rian JR Roberts&rsquo\;s 1981 annotated bibliography \;Black Lesbia ns\, a book whose cover she was drawn to when browsing at a used books tore with a specific intention not to purchase anything.

\n

The Qu een&rsquo\;s English \;gathers books from the chapter of \;Black Lesbians \;entitled &ldquo\;Literature &\; Criticism.&rd quo\; It also features a series of photographic diptychs in collaboration w ith Roif\, along with other source materials\, to consider the role of &ldq uo\;the reader&rdquo\; as a position of power. About this notion\, and in r esponse to her project entitledReading Trayvon Martin\, Syms notes \, &ldquo\;Here\, reading\, once considered a solitary endeavor\, is re-exa mined as an active stance through the added dimensions of posting\, sharing \, reframing\, and thus contributing to a broader conversation across socia l media. The act of bookmarking becomes synonymous with the process of stak ing out a position\, publicly declaring a side or a perspective.&rdquo\;

\n

About \;The Queen&rsquo\;s English\, and her work in gen eral\, Syms says\, &ldquo\;I consider much of my work an excursus from a pr imary text. I&rsquo\;m engaged in trying to read what&rsquo\;s not there.&r dquo\; The introduction of \;Black Lesbians \;states: &ldq uo\;As this bibliography undoubtedly proves\, a body of [Black lesbian] lit erature exists\, although it is often hidden or unidentified for reasons di rectly related to the social\, political\, and economic realities of being Black\, female\, and lesbian.&rdquo\;

\n

Martine Syms is an artist and &ldquo\;conceptual entrepreneur&rdquo\; based in Los Angeles. Her work exp lores themes as varied as Afrofuturism\, queer theory\, the power of langua ge\, and the spiritual nature of the color purple.

She also initiated Dominica Publishing\, which i ncludes a catalogue of ten titles by international\, emerging artists. Syms has lectured at Light Industry in Brooklyn\; Project Row Houses and the Ho uston Museum of African American Art\, both in Houston\; South by Southwest in Austin\; California Institute of the Arts\, Valencia\; University of Ch icago and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago\; Johns Hopkins Univers ity and Maryland Institute College of Art\, both in Baltimore\; and MoMA P. S.1 in Queens\, among other venues. Her artwork has been exhibited and scre ened at the New Museum in New York\; Museum of Contemporary Art and School of the Art Institute of Chicago\; Capricious Space in Brooklyn\; The Wassai c Project in upstate New York\; and at White Flag Projects in St. Louis. Sy ms is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a degre e in Film\, Video\, and New Media.

ASHES/ASHES is pleased to pres ent its end-of-year exhibition\, \;SOUS LA MOQUETTE/LA MOQUETTE . The exhibition brings together works from six artists: Jake Dibe ler\, Mikey Estes\, Anton Ginzburg\, Bradford Kessler\, Michael Max McLeod\ , and Ryan McNamara. Their pieces coalesce to explore how contemporary arti sts subvert aesthetic conventions through the tension between overt appeara nces and their hidden realities\, suburban contentment and undercurrents of violence &ndash\; often tweaking and twisting norms without actually overt urning them.

The exhibition's title plays on a slogan of France' s 1968 student protests\, &ldquo\;Sous les pavé\;s\, la plage&rdquo\; &ndash\; &ldquo\;under the cobblestones\, there is the beach&rdquo\; &ndas h\; and cynically contends that when peeling back the carpet of society\, o ne is disturbed to uncover another layer of the same. The exhibition dares the audience to reconsider their comfort with the conventions of culture\, entertainment\, and politics. The six artists represented in \; SOUS LA MOQUETTE/LA MOQUETTE \;each maintain an individual per spective\, but when woven together\, their distinct voices become a collect ive chorus expressing the quiet horror of complacency.

Ryan McNa mara's arresting video work\, The Latest in Blood and Guts\, shows an enter tainer eviscerating himself on stage and is paired with McNamara&rsquo\;s t hematic inverse\, a large-scale collage from cut-outs of gallery visitors c onstructing their identities for a performance still. Photographs from Mich ael Max McLeod's Adult Cinema and Casual Encounters series\, depicting empt y pornographic theaters and individuals devoutly living out their desires\, document the outlets for staging private lives. Bradford Kessler's strikin g wall decal\, a life-sized portrait of the artist re-imagined as a video g ame protagonist\, is both playful and iconoclastic\, animating the concept of catharsis through violence. In Mikey Estes' installation\, faux flora ca mouflage themselves amongst natural greenery\, to comment on blending in an d standing out (with varying degrees of success). Anton Ginzburg's altered busts of celebrated American presidents are upturned and precariously balan ced\, suggestive of an imminent collapse. Jake Dibeler's sister (black/blac k)\, composed of twin folding chairs dressed with black wigs and anchoring black balloons\, collides the morose with the hysterical to provoke the aud ience into a state of reaction.

Please join us for a gallery rec eption on \;Saturday\, December 20th from 7 - 9 p.m.&n bsp\;
