Artist Sean Duffy will take a journey that will make its way to his exhibition at the Museum. The story of this journey will unfold over four distinct spaces: the curb just outside the main entrance; the lobby, which is visible from the street; the stairway and Brief Gallery; and Segerstrom Gallery. Each space will contain separate elements linked by the story. All the elements in Duffy’s installation are connected by his history, whether through elements or interests from past bodies of work (e.g. turntables, vinyl records, cars, modern design, fuel containers, etc.) or autobiography. Together, they map a progression toward a deeper understanding of Duffy’s particular place and time, as well as a personal observation of Southern California.
Curated by Grace Kook-Anderson, Curator of Exhibitions at Laguna Art Museum. This exhibition will be on display at the same time as John Paul Jones, Roscoe Shrader, and Masterstrokes.
