DESCRIPTION

CB1 Gallery is pleased to present Tomorrowland, a group exhibition curated by Rory Devine. This group exhibition posits the question: How will work made in the present be read in the future without a contemporary context? The exhibition opens on April 14 and remains on view through May 19. An opening reception will be held on Saturday April 14 from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm.

Each of the artists, who all live and work in Los Angeles, (The Real Tomorrowland) were asked to view this exhibition as a bit of a time capsule, one where meaning, form and content are constantly in a fluid state, or to consider EVERY Twilight Zone Episode. Thematically linked to the well-known Disney Attraction, Tomorrowland, this exhibition addresses how the future, or our culturally collective construct of the future, is in constant state of remodeling or updating.

The artists included in Tomorrowland are:

 

Lisa Adams
Jeff Colson
Sean Duffy
Kathleen Johnson
Marion Lane
Pat Murch
Patrick Nickell
Rebecca Ripple
Richard Roe
Matthew Scarlett
Keith Walsh

Devine envisions a kind of visual mash up suggestive of all The Twilight Zones. The work highlights the present with a kind of sci-fi, futuristic or otherworldly quality about it. Just like our reading of the past, through artwork created centuries ago, has a very different relationship to the time in which it was made, we can only imagine how contemporary art might be interpreted in the future.
