BOX SCHEME HOURS: Thursday - Saturday 12-6pm, closed Sunday, Monday - Friday 12-6pm
Leading galleries in downtown Los Angeles' Chinatown open their doors for Box Scheme, the culminating exhibition of California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) graduating MFA candidates. Introducing the next wave of artistic talent, the exhibition will be on view from July 2 through July 9, 2010. Each of the participating spaces will present groupings of work linked by conversations among individual practices--highlighting the diversity of expression from School of Art's Photography and Media Program and Art Program. Spanning experimental forms and critically reflexive expression, the exhibition explores the trajectories and discontents of contemporary discourse.
This year's exhibition is organized by independent curator Ana Vejzovic Sharp. Previously, Ms. Sharp was the director of the David Kordansky Gallery and China Art Objects Galleries in Los Angeles. From 2004 to 2007, she served as the Assistant and later Associate Curator of The Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland, Ohio.
