From Dennis Hopper to Sandow Birk, Andy Moses, Fred Tomaselli, Bruce Conner, George Herms, Jay Mark Johnson, Timothy Williams, Norton Wisdom, and countless others, Venice Beach, California has been more than a shared neighborhood — it's been a muse. Legendary as an attractor basin for poets and artists for a century, it's also a surf mecca; and as the new multi-venue exhibition organized by NYEHAUS amply demonstrates, more often than not, those passions inhabit the same soul. This mammoth exhibition of painting, sculpture, performance, video, and photography runs the gamut of media and image style from the picturesque to the dark and abstract — because after all, there are as many visions of what art can be as there are drops of water in the ocean.
