DESCRIPTION

 ShoeboxLA Presents

Amy Maloof: Grave Architecture

Saturday, September 17, 2011 from 4-7pm

Little Tokyo Galleria – Second Floor

333 S. Alameda St (at 3rd), Los Angeles, CA 90013

Our inaugural exhibition will feature Pomona-based artist Amy Maloof.  Maloof explores the odd-ball and humorous architectural motifs of mini-mall and strip mall culture seen around Southern California. The artist isolates these strange icons, calling more attention to their general weirdness beyond their original environments. These images have a cartoony or folksy look yet are used for serious marketing purposes.  Maloof's monuments celebrate our submission to the passive pleasures of mass visual consumption.  

ShoeboxLA gives Los Angeles artists an opportunity to do one-day, site-specific exhibitions outside the traditional gallery setting. Founders Sophia Allison and Paul W. Evans provide an intimate space that challenges artists' and viewers' expectations of size and scale. Locations change for each show but the space remains the same.
