DESCRIPTION

Playtime

Curated by Leonardo Bravo and Janet Levy
March 22 – May 14, 2011
Opening reception: Tuesday, March 22, 5-8pm

See Line Gallery presents Playtime, a group exhibition curated by Leonardo Bravo and Janet Levy including works by Steven Bankhead, Joshua Callaghan, Sumi Ink Club, Megan Geckler, Gustavo Godoy, Katherine Gray, Katrin Jurati, Siri Kaur, Brian Roettinger, Michael Worthington, Meeson Pae Yang. Playtime includes sculpture, installation, photography and works on paper.

Playtime: a time for play or diversion, is an exchange between the two curators, Leonardo Bravo and Janet Levy, that creates an environment in which ideas and disciplines have the opportunity to interact and bounce off each other. In this exhibition, these artists' works are presented so as to engage in playful interactions that create new meanings due to the cross-referencing of disparate media and methods. These dynamic connections abound from work to work and inspire the viewer with a spirited notion of play.

Leonardo Bravo is an artist, educator, and curator.  He received his MFA from the University of Southern California. Since 2009, Bravo has organized and produced Big City Forum, an interdisciplinary project designed to bring together creative practitioners over issues related the social dimensions of art and public space. Currently Big City Forum functions as a monthly conversation series in which leading architects, designers, artists, curators, and writers share projects with a collective network of peers. These conversations have taken place at multiple sites across LA including the Santa Monica Museum of Art, The Neutra House, The Goethe Institut, LAX ART, and Art Center College of Design.

Janet Levy is a curator and gallery founder/director born in Los Angeles, CA. She presented her first curatorial project in Luzern, Switzerland in 1990 and brings years of curatorial, gallery and marketing experience to her success in producing and promoting significant projects by prominent contemporary artists. Levy has demonstrated an extraordinarily intuitive ability for selecting talented visual artists and, in 2006, she founded See Line Gallery, an exhibition space dedicated to supporting the work of these exceptional contemporary artists.

See Line Gallery hours Monday – Friday 11am-5pm and by appointment. For further information regarding the exhibition please contact Janet Levy cell: 917 604 3114 or email: info@seelinegallery.com.
