> DESCRIPTION
The artists’ works in the Ground Control exhibition reference environmental awareness in a contemplative and also hopeful manner. The exhibition features legendary artist, educator and iconoclastic designer Ed Fella’s rarely seen masterful collages. These collages, created exclusively for Ground Control, are constructed of bits and pieces collected directly from the streets of Los Angeles. This presentation is significant as it is the first time showing of Ed Fella's artwork outside of the museum setting and in a gallery exhibition.


Our environment is not only the air, water, minerals, organisms, and all other external factors surrounding us at any given moment, but also the social and cultural forces that shape the life of a person or a population. We are currently in a continual struggle with man’s need to exercise dominion over an ever-expanding territory and the detrimental side effects of this obsession with control and consumption. With rising awareness to the obvious changes occurring to our climate and the immediate consequences felt by humanity world wide, one would expect to find artistic translation that speaks to the immediacy of this climacteric event. With Ground Control, the curators have selected a diverse representation of artists that subtly draw the viewer’s attention to this ever-evolving story.

Janet Levy is a curator and gallery founder/director born in Los Angeles, CA. She presented her first curatorial project in Luzern, Switzerland in 1990 and brings years of curatorial, gallery and marketing experience to her success in producing and promoting significant projects by prominent contemporary artists. Levy has demonstrated an extraordinarily intuitive ability for selecting talented visual artists and, in 2006, she founded See Line Gallery, an exhibition space dedicated to supporting the work of these exceptional contemporary artists.

Niki Livingston is a curator and Creative Director living in Los Angeles.  In 2001 she joined forces with Kime Buzzelli in the creative space and later avant garde boutique Show Pony.  By the end of 2005, she ventured out on her own to expand into event production and freelance curatorial advising, as well as taking the creative helm at the iconic contemporary art t-shirt company 2k by Gingham.
