ABOUT ART OFFICE
As an ongoing platform for critical investigations and artistic projects, ART OFFICE for Film + Video actively seeks, promotes and presents contemporary video and film in art contexts. Founded by artists and CalArts alums Victoria Fu, Julie Orser and Jennifer L. Porter, ART OFFICE was formed to expand both emerging and established artists working in time-based media in the Los Angeles area.
Slab is an exhibition method founded by Los Angles-based artist Wendy Mason and Houston-based curator Nancy Zastudil. Enacted in unexpected locations, Slab functions as a platform for artists' works, including solo, group and collaborative projects. We consider the transitory roles of artists and curators while aiming to facilitate artist's projects and events, exploring the fun and experimental nature of creative activity.
Wendy Mason and Mindy Rose Schwartz
Opening reception February 26, 6pm - 8pm, February 27, 2008 thru April 20, 2008
Wendy Mason and Mindy Rose Schwartz explore their mutual interest in how objects and spaces hold the history of human interactions and the physical and ephemeral traces of their use. Their collaboration suggests a fullness that occurs inside of a space that extends beyond the structure of what is meant to contain it. The natural organization of objects and meaning is changed when what is normally hidden is revealed.
