For the latest iteration of 18th Street Arts Center&rsquo\;s Artist Lab series\, artist \;Miljohn Ruperto \;brings the Lab framework int o dialogue with science and philosophy. In collaboration with animator Aim& eacute\;e de Jongh and neuroscientist Rajan Bhattacharyya\, he will investi gate the speculative possibilities of mineral &ldquo\;deformities&rdquo\; i nspired by Georges Canguilhem&rsquo\;s text\, \;Knowledge of Life. The three come together to grapple with a particular assertion by Cang uilhem\, a philosopher of science\, that &ldquo\;there are no mineral monst ers\,&rdquo\; or rather that the scientific category of mineral is incompat ible with human notions of deformity. Ruperto&rsquo\;s exhibition \;Mineral Monsters \;delves into a space wherein humans are irrelev ant\, unable to project their own attributes onto or against the material w orld. His work then troubles that space by introducing visual aspects that trigger our implicit\, negative responses\, such that the neutral tenor of Canghuilhem&rsquo\;s position shifts to a more troubling\, oppositional one . Ruperto will use the Artist Lab as a working studio to untangle the relat ionship between science and philosophy and contemplate the ways in which ou r categorization of natural phenomena both shapes and hinders our broader c onceptualization of life. Working together with animator de Jongh\, Ruperto will create computer-generated visuals. These visual forms will be derived from conversations with Bhattacharyya and from his research based in concr ete scientific principles.

\n

Canguilhem\, a French philosopher and physici an\, served as a mentor to many scholars and philosophers\, notably Foucaul t and Derrida. \; His work often questions accepted science\, arguing t hat it serves to reduce organisms to neatly functioning and predictable mac hines when in fact biology is complex and subject to wide variation. Accord ing to Canguilhem\, all minerals exist in nature\, whether they contain mut ations or not\, and thus the idea that there exists typical and atypical va rieties of minerals is simply a human construction. Ruperto and his collabo rators use Canguilhem&rsquo\;s negation of human potential for influence ov er nature as the starting point for a meditation on the basic nature of hum ans to be governed by attraction and repulsion.

\n

Ruperto&rsquo\;s interes t in scientific philosophy and history is ongoing\, represented by his earl ier collaboration with artist Ulrik Heltoft\, \;Voynich Botanical S tudies\, exhibited at the Thomas Solomon Gallery in New York in 2013 a nd in the 2014 Whitney Biennial. \;Voynich Botanical Studies \; was inspired by a 16th \;century manuscript containing drawings of various species of plants whose historical existence cannot be corroborate d scientifically. Also displayed at the Whitney was an earlier collaborativ e animation created by Ruperto with de Jongh.

\n

Miljohn Ruperto&rsquo\ ;s Artist Lab Residency at 18th Street Arts Center and all associated event s have been made possible through the generous support of the \;Los Angeles County Arts Com mission \;and \;The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

18th Street Arts Center&rsquo\;s visiting artist \;Yukako Ando \; presents several site-specific installations in the Atrium Gallery that eng age with themes of urban daily life in Los Angeles. This exhibition documen ts Ando&rsquo\;s questions and impressions informed by the humor of America n &ldquo\;pop consumption culture&rdquo\; and by her interior responses. An do&rsquo\;s approach to her work is diaristic\, instinctive\, and personal. Ando uses daily necessities to create the important elements of her work a nd explore ideas of time and space\, drawing additional inspiration from th e city&rsquo\;s climate\, buildings\, and freeway connections. The works on exhibit reflect her experiences of Los Angeles collected from past visits and during her residency.

\n

Yukako Ando is a visual artist who focuses on the everyday phenomena from which the fundamental questions of life are con figured. Ando\, born in 1972 in Osaka\, Japan\, currently lives and works i n Dü\;sseldorf\, Germany. She graduated from the Department of Sculptur e of Kyoto Seika University in 1994 and earned her MA degree from Kunstakad emie Dü\;sseldorf in 2001.

Presented in conjunction with a three-month residency supported by the Ministry of Culture Taiwan and Taiwan Academy Los Angeles\, TSAI Shih-Hung exhibits an installation of recent paintings completed while in reside nce in the Curator&rsquo\;s Lounge.

\n

I n Tsai Shih-Hung&rsquo\;s eyes\, human life is being destroyed by technolog y and the digital world. He uses the canvas as a screen\, evoking smart pho nes and computers\, to show the world his ironic observations. Tsai&rsquo\; s working process begins with a Google image search\, based on a keyword su ch as &ldquo\;war.&rdquo\; He collages several found images by hand\, drawi ng them into different parts of a painting so as to question what is &ldquo \;real&rdquo\; and what is &ldquo\;virtual.&rdquo\; In works such as his Lab series\, he addresses topical issues such as the fear of &ldquo\ ;mad cow disease&rdquo\; that has affected the importing of American beef i nto Taiwan. Despite the sometimes harsh images of war scenes and ruins in T sai&rsquo\;s work\, one can also find colorful shooting stars\, which expre ss a hopeful appreciation of the possibilities that digital technologies st ill hold for improving people&rsquo\;s lives.

\n

Tsai Shih-Hung earned an MFA from the Taipei National University of the Arts in 2006. He has also won several awards including ART TAIPEI M IT and Art Tainan in 2013\, and a Kaohsiung Award in 2012.

\n

This exhibition receives generous support from the Taiwan Academy and the Ministry of Culture T aiwan. 18th Street Arts Center has collaborated with these notable part ners since 1999\, fostering cultural exchange by hosting two visiting artis ts from Taiwan each year.

&ndash\; Bernar Venet

\n

 \;

\n

The revelation of the processes o f production in the work of art is clearly the governing principle behind t he series \; \;Indeterminate Lines \;that made their a ppearance in Bernar Venet&rsquo\;s work from 1979. &ldquo\;Indeterminate&rd quo\; because they are diametrically opposed to the mathematical determinat ion of their predecessors. \; More vague and less tangible\, they canno t be reduced to an equation: they nevertheless seek a form of physical cert ainty strong enough to silent the confusion of meanings and to demonstrate explicitly that their one truth and reality is that of a piece of work.&nbs p\; The obvious geometrical forms of previous pieces are here replaced by t he direct manipulation of a raw material.

\n

 \;

\n

Venet&rsquo\; s daily working process is a sort of satisfying game of natural constraints between his artistic intentions and the material itself. \; Each orien ts the other and is oriented in its turn. \;The artist proposes directi ons but at the same time he&rsquo\;s directed by the steel bar that resists . In this fascinating subtle game of concessions\, the artist must leave it s autonomy at the helm. The esthetical result is a compelling testimony to the act of forming and to the inherent possibilities of the material. \ ;

New York based painter Phil Frost (b. 1973) has evolved a consistent\, i nstantly recognizable aesthetic synonymous with his name\, which he refers to as &ldquo\;intuitive perceptive portraiture.&rdquo\; This first exhibiti on of new work at Ace Gallery testifies to his relevance and extensive cult ural reach as a leading contemporary artist who is self taught. Frost&rsquo \;s title for the exhibition\, with its multiple meanings\, alludes to the ascetic life. Referring to the internal struggles involved in the act of pa inting\, it is often an unnerving personal journey involving intense discip line and patience in self-imposed isolation. Encoded in the pursuit\, there is no straying from a discipline in which he is immersed. As many artists and writers experience\, The Solace of the Sword references the st ruggle with solitary confinement required to create. Frost&rsquo\;s visual language melds layers of flat-white\, culturally indeterminate mask-like fo rms with bold typographical and fluid\, \; glyphic\, geometric\, and si nuous shapes that dance above vivid spectrums of painterly color\, forming the long-necked busts and repetitions of faces that are pronounced as his i ntuitive portraiture.

\n

Raised in rural Western Massachusetts\, from a you ng age he grew up searching for and sometimes finding Indian adzes and arro wheads in farm fields and forests\, and he made use of a natural fountain f ound at the edge of the woods that spouted clay by sitting at its rim and f orming shapes in his hands. Early artistic experiment found him repetitious ly drawing the white streak found in the hair of comic book scientist Reed Richards of The Fantastic Four\, as well as scenes of Pac-Man chasing ghost s\, and the antennae found on Batman&rsquo\;s mask. Just before his early t eens\, Frost began to enjoy spending time on summer visits with an older co usin who was an authority on antique glass bottles found in Northwestern Oh io. Together they would go on expeditions armed with maps of former times f rom the library and dig farm fields and abandoned rural dumps for glass ves sels.

\n

The unearthed treasures were impressed upon his mind and this arch aeological drive influenced him\, and would continue to. It was later revea led when he began making work imbued with collected and found objects\, as a way to present the actual passage of his life gesturally into the context of a painted visual passage&mdash\;a representation to articulate how the now inflects a lineage of experience in time and space that is formed both physically and intuitively from what is around him.

\n

In his adolescence F rost moved\, along with his younger sister and mother\, by whom he was sole ly raised\, to Cooperstown\, NY for just over two years. There\, an early f ascination with baseball and in particular the position of pitching and the arabesque-like gesture made by a swinging bat was deepened.

\n

His teenage years were spent in Albany\, NY and were consumed by skateboarding downtow n in the Capital District\, where various terrain included Ellsworth Kelly sculptures and the perfectly transitionally-formed marble quarter-pipes\, t he glass walls on the architecture of Wallace Harrison&rsquo\;s Egg\, and t he marble playground he designed known as The Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza. His often taking off on excursions to New York City to skatebo ard with friends led to an awareness and depth of interest in graffiti and anonymous mark making. Eventually cracking both of his kneecaps and repeate dly breaking both wrists\, Frost was about to drop out of high school when a principal recommended an independent-study art class\, to make up extra c redit. With no teacher but the materials put in front of him\, Frost would figure out how best to stretch a canvas\, venture to find objects he could use as material in left over fire pits\, and decide that he wanted to be a painter on his own terms. At a yard sale he attended with his mother he sco red a 25-cent brown paper bag of oil paints along with a copy of David Sylv ester&rsquo\;s Interviews with Francis Bacon that led to his further convic tion. Captivated\, he read it intently and repeatedly. Also self taught\, B acon&rsquo\;s ethos resonated deeply and triggered in Frost\, at the age of eighteen\, an eager thirst for art-historical precedents\, including in pa rticular\, Alberto Giacometti\, whose fascination with heads\, busts and fi gures in space began the evolution and direction that has defined Frost&rsq uo\;s work today.

\n

At eighteen\, late in the summer of 1991\, Frost moved on his own to Long Island City\, Queens. Here\, he took union jobs\, labor ing in the night on the backs of trucks so that he could have his days free to persistently explore museums\, scour the streets for materials\, and ma ke his work in the tiny\, windowless basement studio that he inhabited. Sur rounded by many different ethnicities and without speaking or understanding any language other than English\, Frost found immense inspiration in closi ng his eyes on the subway and listening to the sound of multiple languages being spoken all at once\, recording fragments of words and charting with h is eyes closed a hybrid of language. Early work with typography found him k nocking out the negative space created by letterforms with white\, as a way to "pop\," or form random patterns of shape\, to react against color. Thes e fluid and sinuous patterns of white shapes that often dominate his work o f late came from a progressive evolution of the reduction of words that in the same way often form a nonsensical lingual chanting woven throughout the intricate layering in his painting.

\n

Phil Frost was born in Jamestown\, NY in 1973 and currently lives and works in the Upper Hudson Valley region of Upstate NY. \;

Ambach &\; Rice is pleased to present the invisible subject\, an informal survey of sculpture and draw ing by Los Angeles based artist Deborah Hede.
 \;
Hede&rsquo\ ;s work employs myriad visual cues\, and her hand and body as measuring too ls. \; She brings the experience of her daily walks into close proximit y with her work in the studio\, describing her practice as being akin to &l dquo\;a heartbeat\, or breathing.&rdquo\; Her modest processes manifest dra wings and sculptures that embody an uncanny confluence of humanity and form alism\, life and art.
 \;
Jack Kerouac once described Los Ang eles as &ldquo\;that loneliest and most brutal of American cities.&rdquo\; Hede encountered this quote spray-painted across a wall on one of her outin gs. She was struck by this commentary\; amplified by its discovery along em pty sidewalks.
 \;
Her recent readymade sculptures cast back this latent sense of place. On her walks Hede happens upon throw aways&mdas h\;spent light bulbs\, gnarled dog toys and mysterious fragments of objects divorced from their source. \; In the studio these diminutive vestiges are memorialized in plaster bases. \; Each sculpture registers an isol ation and absence that collectively shape an index of the city's present te nse. Encountering these works can feel akin to discovering a narrative that has been abandoned by its protagonist.
 \;
The exhibit will also include a site-specific sculptural work that will incorporate Hede&rsq uo\;s plaster wrapped wire configurations. These metal forms will build upo n a part of the gallery's interior space to create a destabilized 'architec ture' that alludes to the body.

Deborah Hede lives and works in Los Angeles. In 2013 she was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant. He r work can be found in numerous private and public collections including Th e Whitney Museum of American Art\, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art\, a nd the Frederick R. Weisman Foundation in Los Angeles.

Anat Ebgi is pleased to announ ce \;Aftermarket Interior\, Factory Paint\, \;a solo exhib ition of new works by Joe Reihsen opening September 13 and on view until Oc tober 25\, 2014.

\n

Aftermarket Inte rior\, Factory Paint \;is Joe Reihsen&rsquo\;s third solo exhibiti on with Anat Ebgi\, and his first show in the newly expanded gallery space. In his previous show\, \;Clean Title\, No Accidents\, Reihsen focused on an intimate scale of works\, akin to the size of a computer scr een or sheet of paper. For this exhibition\, Reihsen continues his explorat ion of the medium of paint\, but on large-scale surfaces. Each panel deftly synthesizes three particular methods that Reihsen utilizes&mdash\; the bac kground stripes\, gestural swathes of gesso emphasized with pneumatic paint ing devices\, and the newest addition of paint &ldquo\;skins&rdquo\; applie d to the top most layer of the abstraction.

\n

The amalgamation of Reihsen&rsquo\;s techniques creates panels that are entrenched in the language of abstract painting\, while still exerting their relationship to contemporary digital culture. Like the ubiquitous dig ital screen\, each of Reihsen&rsquo\;s panels contains a profound sense of physical depth while remaining almost entirely flat. \;Aftermarket Interior\, Factory Paint \;is a collection of Joe Reihsen&rsquo\;s most sophisticated works in which the tensions between abstraction\, digit al technology and industrial materials are collapsed into monumental painti ngs.

\n

Joe Reihsen (b. 1979. Blaine\, M innesota) lives and works in Los Angeles. Joe received his BFA in painting and New Genres at the San Francisco Art Institute. In 2008\, Joe received a n MFA from the University of California\, Santa Barbara where he was awarde d the UC Regents Fellowship. Recent exhibitions include a solo presentation at Miart Milan. Upcoming exhibitions include a solo shows at Brand New Gal lery\, Milan\, and Praz-Delavallade\, Paris.

Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow is proud to pr esent Expression Session 2\, a
group exhibition of works spanning two generations of surf culture\, featuring seven of its most influential artis ts.
Selected by guest curator Will Pennartz\, founder and owner of The Surf Gallery (2001-2010)\, the exhibition consists of
paintings\, pho tographs\, prints and posters by John Severson\, Mike Salisbury\, Rick Grif fin\, Thomas Campbell\, Geoff
McFetridge\, Andy Davis and Tyler Warren . The show will be on view September 4-28\, 2014 with an opening reception< br />on September 6. Among the works available will be never-before-exhibit ed prints of 1960s-era Surfer Magazine
drawings by Salisbury\, as well as a new limited edition print from Thomas Campbell.
The Surf Gallery &rsquo\;s temporary return to Laguna Beach is notable\, because\, AR4T Gall ery owner Torrey Cook explains\,
its 2010 closure left a hole in the L aguna Beach art community: &ldquo\;Will created a incubator for the most in novative artists
in surfing and nothing can take its place\,&rdquo\; s he said. From 2001 through 2010 Pennartz presented a reflection of the
changing modern surf culture by blending contemporary art and more traditi onal surf imagery in the small gallery\,
which was just up the steps f rom the famous Thalia Street surf break. He also organized exhibitions in N ew
York\, Tokyo\, London\, Paris\, Sydney\, Sao Paulo and more. In 201 3\, Expression Session 1 at Artists Republic 4
Tomorrow featured works from 16 influential contemporary artists in surf culture throughout the fi rst decade of the
2000s.
In Expression Session 2\, Pennartz bring s two generations together starting with the very beginning: &ldquo\;John S everson
was an inspiration for me to open The Surf Gallery\, and I'm t hrilled to still be working with him again\,&rdquo\; he says. &ldquo\;I've< br />always been a huge fan of Mike Salisbury's work - from his early drawi ngs in Surfer Magazine to his photography and
design work. Thomas Camp bell is a legend in his own right.&rdquo\; Tyler Warren\, 28\, who Pennartz has featured in several
exhibitions\, says\, &ldquo\;I am honored to be in such good company in this show. Andy\, John\, and Thomas are some of my
favorite artists. I have pieces by each of them in my personal coll ection.&rdquo\;
"The combination of this carefully selected group of c ontemporary artists\, alongside the original visionaries of the
indust ry\, highlights the generational influence that this art has had on culture as a whole\,&rdquo\; says gallery co-owner and
co-curator Mark Weiner . &ldquo\;The Surf Gallery helped shape my interest not only in surf cultur e\, but in contemporary art in
general. I am very excited to be workin g with Will again in presenting works that I believe will also inspire gene rations
to come."
