ArtSlant - All venues en-us 40 101/EXHIBIT, 8920 Melrose Avenue, West Hollywood, CA 90069 <p>101/EXHIBIT was founded by architect/collector Sloan Schaffer in Miami, FL. Named after the original location at 101 NE 40th St. in Miami&rsquo;s Design District, the gallery represents emerging and established contemporary artists.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Launched in 2008, 101/EXHIBIT staged shows highlighting figurative painting, design, decorative art, and object-based works, while evolving towards the exhibition of contemporary art exclusively by 2011. Having produced over 20 exhibitions by the winter of 2012, the gallery opened its second location in West Hollywood, CA. The gallery&rsquo;s presence in Miami was subsequently discontinued after the sale of the 101 NE 40th St building, and in the spring of 2013, staff relocated to West Hollywood to continue year-round programming at 8920 Melrose Ave.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>101/EXHIBIT seeks to highlight the exploratory relationship between artist and audience. Through the public exhibition of contemporary bodies of artwork, the gallery explores the potential of the creative process to challenge the assumption that the traditional divisions of intellectual inquiry are still adequate to deal with the meaningful questions of our time.</p> Sat, 29 Aug 2015 00:25:46 +0000 1301PE, 6150 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90048 Thu, 09 Jul 2015 16:10:23 +0000 18th Street Arts Center, 1639 18th St. , Santa Monica, CA 90404 <p style="text-align: justify;">18th Street Arts Center is the largest artist residency program in Southern California.

The Market conceptually re-imagines the neighborhood corner store as a curated idea emporium. Neither exhibition, performance, nor retail environment per se, Alt|Space at Top Tomato functions as a collaborative incubator, provoking dialogue through an interweaving of media and methods-visual and aural, sacred and profane, cerebral and gustatory.<br /><br />There are no guests at Alt|Space, only participants. And participants do not merely encounter ideas at Alt|Space, they engage with them.

The college's exhibition program encompasses the Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery, a separate Student Gallery, various works of indoor and outdoor sculpture, and works on loan to the building's interior. </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;"><b>A</b> student exhibition is mounted three times per year in the Student Gallery, a 3000 square-foot space devoted to showing examples of work from each department of study. The goal of the student gallery is to acknowledge excellence and innovation at all levels of student accomplishment, to inspire and elevate perceptions of quality among all current students, and to share Art Center's standards with potential students and public audiences. </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;"><b>T</b>he 4600 square-foot Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery draws inspiration from all the fertile domains of Art Center's educational programs, producing three major exhibitions per year. Its goal is to be an active partner in the education of intelligent and spirited students who will shape visual culture in the future, and to engage the broader public community in a progressive dialogue about art and design for the 21st century. To accomplish this goal the gallery connects the college's curriculum and student population to both established and emerging artists, looks to history as well as to the present, and has become a leader in the exploration of products, concepts, and expressions forged at the intersection of art, science, and new technologies. </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: small;"><b>E</b>very exhibition in the Williamson Gallery is perceived as an educational hub extending directly into the classroom and the quality of student education, as well as a magnet for drawing the community into a profound experience of art and design. This close alignment between exhibition content and vectors of educational priority assures relevance between the gallery and the classroom. At the same time, the gallery should not be a purely pedagogical forum that only echoes classroom teaching. A gallery centered in Art Center's learning environment, playing the role of both protagonist and antagonist for concepts core to the mission of the college, is what formed and has sustained the vision of the Williamson Gallery. The gallery offers students an opportunity to form authentic and critical insights based upon a first-hand experience of art and design, leveraging the unique ability exhibitions have to resonate deeply, provoke intellectual dissonance, and conjure unexpected pathways of thinking.</span></p> Wed, 01 Oct 2014 20:13:10 +0000 AMBACH & RICE, 6148 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048 Thu, 09 Oct 2014 08:30:32 +0000
