DESCRIPTION

A nomadic pop-up, two-day-only show at the Torrance Art Museum!

Opening on

Saturday June 30th, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm



"Blank Land" is collaborative show exploring urban identity crises, sacrifice, and heroism through the lens of mythology and American values.

The show features the work of over forty artists.

Oh Nancy is an national art collective that provides a vehicle for artists -- presenting them with a narrative structure that facilitates collaboration and multiple-authorship. Using contradiction, symbolism, and coincidence histories are created and layered-- anchored in this narrative blueprint. The story is a mythical and satirical portrait of Americana that examines fanaticism and the complexities of the American hero. Artists respond to different facets of the story, organically building it along the way, each exhibition the latest chapter in an ever growing epic.

Oh Nancy was created and is directed by Arthur Henderson, Nathan Wellman and Fionn McCabe.

The "Blank Land" is also open for viewing on Tuesday, from 11:00am to 5:00pm
