Opening reception: Wed Apr 28 | 6–9 pm
Artists' talk: 6:00 pm
The group exhibition Never Very Far Apart brings together six projects that cross the poetic and political ground between the individual and the group; the local and the global; this moment in time and that place in history. Proceeding from the conditions in which they live and work, these artists explore distance as both border and bridge—considering how a finite position may parallel or intersect with seemingly disparate places or distant times. The exhibition gathers projects in performance, moving image, painting and printed matter that examine how context is defined and consider how it can be re-imagined to activate social spaces for renewed thought and action. Organized by REDCAT curatorial assistant Ryan Inouye, the exhibition features new and recent works by Terry Chatkupt, (Los Angeles), Michelle Dizon and Camilo Ontiveros (Los Angeles), Jennifer Hayashida and Benj Gerdes (New York), Adriana Lara (Mexico City), Elana Mann (Los Angeles) and RJ Messineo (St. Louis, Missouri).
