OVERTONES is pleas ed to present the “Pandemic Show”\, a group exhibition of artist-designed s urgical masks.  The exhibition is conceived by Los Angeles artist Sandra Lo w and co-curated by Sandra Low and OVERTONES gallery’s director Elizabeta B etinski.

The artworks on display were created specifically for this exhibition. Over 60 artists were sent masks\, and asked to interpret and customize these seemingly flimsy facial prophylactics into unique works of art. Inevitably\, the resulting works are deliciously unpredictable\; a display of pathos and deadpan humor that reflects upon our collective para noia as well as our desire to survive.

News footage of brush f ires\, earthquakes\, and pandemic flu invariably feature people swathed in the now familiar masks. Worn as intended\, they become blanks upon the face that beg to be filled. Mutations have begun to emerge. In China\, masks ha ve featured Burberry plaids and cartoon critters. Painted skulls and Sharpi e-pen smiles are recorded in Mexico City.

The surgical face ma sk has become a global symbol of dystopian microbial assault. Toxic ash and rubble. Swine flu. Botched rhinoplasties. We are all going to die. Protect yourself. Do it with style.

“Pandemic Show” marks seven years of existence for OVERTONES gallery—a contemporary Los Angeles exhibition s pace whose program has strived to intertwine beauty and social action\, and reach out beyond the confines of established art-world structures in an ef fort to engage a wide range of audiences.  Since its inception\, OVERTONES has presented the work of 77 artists in 43 exhibitions.  
“Pandemic S how” is the last group exhibition presented by OVERTONES: it is a call to c elebrate life\, embrace change\, and utilize our creativity to fight off th e biggest and most damaging pandemic of all: fear.
