Marx &\; Zavattero is thri lled to present Sea Change\, a thought-provoking two-part exhibition celebrating the gallery's 10-year anniversary June 11 - August 20\, 2011. With special focus on the six artists that have been part of the gallery's stable since the gallery's inception (Davis &\; Davis\, Stephen Giann etti\, Matt Gil\, Liséa Lyons\, William Swanson\, Forrest Williams)\, t he show will challenge the traditional idea of a retrospective. It will not be a rote presentation of the 'gallery greatest hits'\, but rather an exci ting showcase of the myriad of relationships and aesthetics that have been formed by Marx &\; Zavattero artists - from the original six\, to those no longer represented by the gallery\, to those new to the stable - with an eye towards the gallery's aesthetic and curatorial future. The goal is to feature unexpected groupings of works\, thus creating new dialogues amongst the artists\, and demonstrating the vitality and scope of the gallery's un ique programming.

The gallery began its build out in September 2001 - 10 days before 9/11 - and has persevered through the dot.com crash and the new depression \, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq\, portions of four presidential terms\, major natural disasters\, and one of the most intense shifts in American a nd world identity in history. Like the artists' bodies of works\, Marx & \; Zavattero feel the history of the gallery presents a personal history th at is unique to them and to their artists' individuality\, courage\, and ta lent. Sea Change promises to boldly shine a light on the last decade .

Sea Change: Part One will feature three of the 'original six' artists: the collaborative Los Angeles-based photography duo Davis &\; Davis\, Bay Area painter Stephen Giannetti\, and San Francisco sculptor Matt Gil. Artists also featured in part one will be Libby Black\, Da vid Hevel\, James Gobel\, Michael Arcega\, Patrick Wilson\, Paul Paiement\, Taravat Talepasand\, Tim Bavington\, and David Lyle. Sea Cha nge: Part Two will feature the other three of the 'original six': New Y ork photographer Liséa\, Bay Area painter William Swanson\, a nd New York painter Forrest Williams. Artists also featured in part two will be Bradley Castellanos\, Andrew Schoultz\, Yoon Lee\, Timothy N olan\, Paul Mullins\, Dana DeKalb\, David Hevel\, Taravat Talepasand\, and Gary Szymanski.

The above-mentioned artists represent a wealth of aesthet ic and artistic practices indicative of their strong\, singular voices. The mes that bridge many of the artists' work and have become identifiable in t he gallery program are: process\, identity\, political/social/environmental critique\, beauty\, and dark humor - and most significantly - a sense of b old irreverence to trends. A unique aspect of the exhibition will feature a subtle rotation of artists in and out of the gallery space during the fift h and sixth weeks of the ten-week presentation\, as the show morphs from Pa rt One to Part Two.

Over the last decade Marx &\; Zavattero has mounted over 80 e xhibitions in the gallery as well as countless outside projects at museums\ , well-respected contemporary art fairs\, and exhibition spaces nationally and internationally. The gallery program has shifted over the last decade\, as Marx and Zavattero's aesthetic tastes changed or were altered by world events. This anniversary exhibition aims to not only showcase the talented artists they have had the pleasure to work with\, but also address wider sh ifts in contemporary art practice over the last 10 years.

Established in 2001 as Heather Marx Gallery and name changed to Marx &\; Zavattero i n early 2008\, the gallery has always strived to present artists who examin e the timeless questions of identity\, race\, class\, and beauty. In respon ding to the world around them\, the artists have provided new ways of seein g and understanding. The gallery's passion has been to create a space and p rogram that feels alive\, challenges people's prejudices both socially and aesthetically\, and celebrates artists who take a constant risk by creating intensely personal work.
