Marx &a mp\; Zavattero is thrilled to present Sea Change\, a thought-provoki ng two-part exhibition celebrating the gallery's 10-year anniversary June 1 1 - 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 Giannetti\, Matt Gil\, Liséa Lyons\, William Swanson\, For rest Williams)\, the show will challenge the traditional idea of a retr ospective. It will not be a rote presentation of the 'gallery greatest hits '\, but rather an exciting showcase of the myriad of relationships and aest hetics that have been formed by Marx &\; Zavattero artists - from the or iginal six\, to those no longer represented by the gallery\, to those new t o the stable - with an eye towards the gallery's aesthetic and curatorial f uture. The goal is to feature unexpected groupings of works\, thus creating new dialogues amongst the artists\, and demonstrating the vitality and sco pe of the gallery's unique programming.

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

Sea Change: Part One will feature three of the 'original six' ar tists: the collaborative Los Angeles-based photography duo Davis &\; Davis\, Bay Area painter Stephen Giannetti\, and San Francisco s culptor Matt Gil. Artists also featured in part one will be Libby Black\, David Hevel\, James Gobel\, Michael Arcega\, Patrick Wilson\, Paul Paiement\, Taravat Talepasand\, Tim Bavington\, and David Lyle. Sea Change: Part Two will feature the other three of the 'original six': New York photographer Liséa Lyons\, Bay Area painter Willia m Swanson\, and New York painter Forrest Williams. Artists also featured in part two will be Bradley Castellanos\, Andrew Schoultz\, Yoo n Lee\, Timothy Nolan\, Paul Mullins\, Dana DeKalb\, David Hevel\, Taravat Talepasand\, and Gary Szymanski.

The abov e-mentioned artists represent a wealth of aesthetic and artistic practices indicative of their strong\, singular voices. Themes that bridge many of th e artists' work and have become identifiable in the gallery program are: pr ocess\, identity\, political/social/environmental critique\, beauty\, and d ark humor - and most significantly - a sense of bold irreverence to trends. A unique aspect of the exhibition will feature a subtle rotation of artist s in and out of the gallery space during the fifth and sixth weeks of the t en-week presentation\, as the show morphs from Part One to Part Two.

Over the last decade Marx &\; Zavattero has mounted ove r 80 exhibitions in the gallery as well as countless outside projects at mu seums\, well-respected contemporary art fairs\, and exhibition spaces natio nally and internationally. The gallery program has shifted over the last de cade\, as Marx and Zavattero's aesthetic tastes changed or were altered by world events. This anniversary exhibition aims to not only showcase the tal ented artists they have had the pleasure to work with\, but also address wi der shifts in contemporary art practice over the last 10 years.

Established in 2001 as Heather Marx Gallery and name cha nged to Marx &\; Zavattero in early 2008\, the gallery has always strived to present artists who examine the timeless questions of identity\ , race\, class\, and beauty. In responding to the world around them\, the a rtists have provided new ways of seeing and understanding. The gallery's pa ssion has been to create a space and program that feels alive\, challenges people's prejudices both socially and aesthetically\, and celebrates artist s who take a constant risk by creating intensely personal work.
