Multiverse refers to the hypothesis that all of physical reality actually exists within a set of multiple, parallel universes, of which our universe is merely one part. The possibility of many universes raises a myriad of scientific, philosophical and theological questions that have been explored in various branches of theoretical science, disciplines of thought and fiction. Multiverse explores these issues artistically in a dynamic exhibition featuring photographic installations, mixed media sculptures, video projections, installation, and sculpture from paper, among other media.

Artists continually create a visual vocabulary for themselves that parallels and portrays an idealized, imagined or fantasized reality. Nature and its mysteries provide endless departure points for fictitious imagery that is recognizable enough to have relevance, yet abstract enough to interrupt familiarity and probe deeper into our psyches. From chimera to corporeality, Multiverse delves into alternative outcomes for the universe we believe exists in singularity.

Participating artists include:
Sebaastian Bremer (New York)
Jedediah Caesar (Los Angeles)
Emilie Halpern (Los Angeles)
Violet Hopkins (Los Angeles)
Emre Hüner (Istanbul, Turkey)
Miler Lagos (Bogotá, Colombia)
Nancy Macko (Claremont)
Carter Mull (Los Angeles)
Diana Thater (Los Angeles)
Fred Tomaselli (New York)
Kerry Tribe (Los Angeles)

Multiverse artists will engage in an email exchange with local scholars, discussing particular areas of science, psychology or the discipline of his/her choice, which will then be incorporated into the exhibition.
