> DESCRIPTION

Curator’s Statement:
"When it comes to curating group shows, I like to start with an idea, something I can use to tell a story. Sometimes, I carry this idea around with me, looking for a way to get it expressed. Sometimes, it’s the happenstances of time and place that suggest it all. In the case ofCONSUMPTIVE, it was both. I’ve been registering visual art that increasingly reflects our culture of extreme consumption, acquisition, appearance, and materialism -- not always in a positive light. Then I was presented with the opportunity to curate a show in the heart of Beverly Hills at the onset of the be-glittered holiday shopping-season frenzy -- and the story started to write itself on the spot. Together, these eleven artists come with a view of the world predicated on stipulating to the hyper-consumptive character of our society. But after that, each one takes his or her own path, and each draws their own conclusions."
