"Thickening the Plot" is a group exhibition of LA based artists that focuses on gardens (intentional and accidental) and how artists work with the idea of a cultivated (or uncultivated) plot of land. This is done through the use of images, objects, installations and land works. The use of a title like "Thickening the Plot" which is more commonly used to describe written plot lines and not plots of land alludes to the way in which the artists have been encouraged to interpret the curatorial permise to their own ends. It also echoes the re-scripting of space at Angels Gate from a military installation to artist studios interspersed in the hillside above San Pedro.
Participating artists include:
Lisa Adams, Ruth Ann Anderson, Holly Boruck, Cusien Chang, Jill D'Agnenica, Libby Gerber, Stanton Hunter, Noel Korten, Margaret Lazzari, Erika Lizée, Barry Markowitz, Marina Moevs, Jim Morphesis, Jessica Newman-Skrentny, Carolie Parker, Cielo Pessione, Karen Reitzel, Roxene Rockwell, Sharon Suhovy
Thickening the Plot is curated by John O'Brien.
