A screening of\, \;
\n
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 \;deals with awkward& nbsp\;transitions\, smash ups\, and disturbances. Each of the artists grapp les with uncomfortable spaces and \;cacophony. Megan Flanders intervene s in the digital transmission of canonic works by women\, making the viewer hyper aware that history is a construction while encouraging its disruptio n. Inserting feminist voice and personal revelation \;into the binary c ode of works such as Vigé\;e Lebruns' portrait of hat ed queen\, Marie Antoinette tentatively posing in the nursery in a futile a ttempt to remind agitated rebels of her duty fulfilled\, Flanders' gesture serves as spontaneous record scratch in the swirling dialogues of gender eq uality and artistic emergence. Chet Glaze actively observes the conflation of \;textures and surfaces amidst the "Happiest Place on Earth\," put o ff by the inability to interact with exquisitely crafted objects such as th e miniature Edwardian neighborhood in the Peter Pan ride\, and the contrari ly schlocky constructions on the facade of It's a Small World. Glaze's inte nt focus on such awkward transitions (citation needed) magnify signs of dis order that are surprising given how contrary they are to Disneyland's brand ing. Julie Shafer's work navigates the rough political terrain of oil dredg ing in the \;Louisiana \;bayou. As if stealing a peek behind the th eme park facades of Glaze's unnoticed decay\, Shafer's psychologically powe rful (red) photographs also compel revolt.

Building on the themes of tole rance and acceptance ubiquitous in his work\, Rodolfo combines beloved anim ated characters with pop culture icons and scenes from art history with del irious moments of the domestic and the divine.

\n

Wonder Pop is the heroic herald of the zeitgeist .

\n

Happy Endings are no longer the pro prietary dream of fairytale fiction\, but even as taboos crumble\, social v ulnerability reveals a reality hithertofore unseen by the disenfranchised.< /p>\n

How will fragile situations alter ext raordinary beings when notions of sin and suppression have been discarded?< /p>\n

The answer is a heady blend of entert ainment\, fashion\, and excess with a subversive sprinkle of magical kitsch .

Come celebrate the age of equality with Wonder Pop!
