Los Angeles-based artist Michele O’Marah explores the effects of popular culture, deconstructing in particular Hollywood genre conventions with both reverence and criticality. Her commitment to involving the arts community as an active participant has always been an underlying element in her work. This exhibition will present a series of video portraits of artists, musicians, and friends, inspired by Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests (1964-66).  The exhibition will include patterned backdrops or wallpapers for each “character.”  The artist will also present a series of still photographs, so that the complete installation ultimately acts as a community portrait.
