DESCRIPTION

Beck Gallery

Desire focuses on six Los Angeles-based artists whose works exemplify the contemporary landscape of desire in the City of Angels, a city known for commodifiying sex through its various entertainment industries. Although many typically view desire in terms of pleasure, these artists have also interpreted desire as a feature of alienation, spiritualism, consumerism, and cultural/gender identification. Curated by Shirlae Cheng-Lifshin, this exhibition features work by Gajin Fujita, David Grant, Iva Gueorguieva, Tom Knechtel, Monica Majoli, and Linda Stark.

This exhibition is supported by the Pasadena Art Alliance.
