DESCRIPTION

…And we like the Boom…

Boom. is an exhibition highlighting artworks of all media from current and recent MFA graduates from invited Southern California institutions. This group exhibition unabashedly forays its artistic output into the public sphere, displaying the fearlessness, bravado and sense of risk-taking that is unique to Southern California’s emergent art community. The academic setting of the region has been instrumental as a location for gestation and experimentation on both the part of the students and the faculty. The collaborative nature between graduate student and faculty serves to reflect the most recent practices, ideologies and concepts in art making of the region. Southern California has an illustrious history within contemporary art practices that has subsequently influenced the art community worldwide. In addition to the content of the show, the enthusiasm of the students to interact within a larger setting is revealed through their own participation, which required much dedicated self-organization.

From the handmade to the conceptually driven as well as performative, illusory and/or banal, the work by the featured artists will appeal to a wide, but discerning audience. In an effort to provide ample exposure, Boom. will include several events surrounding the exhibition. The opening reception will take place on July 28th, 2011 from 6pm to 9pm. There will be a programmed panel speaking event featuring guest panelists, as well as performance engagements on August 11th. For those who want to witness the Boom spectra in conjunction with LA Art Walk, Boom will extend its hours from 5pm- until 9pm on August 11th, 2011.
