Dreamlands: An Exploration of the Landscpaes of our Dreams (Curated by Caro)
On Saturday, March 14, Corey Helford presents “Dreamlands” a group show, curated by Sweet Streets’ fabulous provocateur, Caro. The 35 new contemporary artists chosen for this show hail from different countries, and work in dynamically unique styles, but share a sparkling, dreamlike sensibility in their end result. While there is a notable Japanese sensibility, it was important to Caro to open the universal theme of “dreams” to artists from different cultures as well. Just as our own dreams weave in and out of reality, the new Dreamlands’ work pushes the boundaries of what we stylistically define as painting today, whether its demonstrated by Yoh Nagao’s super flat rainbow colors or Kazuki Takamatsu’s graphic, black and white “depth paintings”, Dream- lands aims to inspire your next respite.
Participating artists include: Amy Sol, Aron Wiesenfeld, Atsuko Goto, Caitlin Hurd, Carol Liu, Ciou, Hannah Yata, Herakut, Hikari Shimoda, Jessicka Addams, Joanne Nam, Kazuhiro Hori, Kazuki Takamatsu, Kazuki Umezawa, Krista Huot, Lola, Lori Nelson, Lu Cong, Mab Graves, Michael Page, Naoto Hattori, Natalia Fabia, Natalie Shau, Nouar, Rebecca Leveille Guay, Sonya Fu, So Youn Lee, Simone Legno, Tara McPherson, Teiji Hamaya, Tom Bagshaw, Yoh Nagao, Yoko d'Holbachie, Yosuke Ueno, and Yumiko Kayukawa.
The opening reception for “Dreamlands” will be hosted on Saturday, March 14, 2015, from 7-10pm at CHG Circa. The reception is open to the public, and the exhibition is on view through April 11, 2015.
Curating this exhibition is Caro, an independent artists’ agent and curator specializing in Japanese contempo- rary art who has become an institution in the LA New Contemporary art scene with her recurring articles and reviews of the Japanese art scene for the well-known art publication Hi-Fructose Magazine. Recently, she has contributed to curatorial projects for the Edo-Tokyo Art Museum (2014) and Spiral Contemporary Art Gallery in Tokyo (2015), as well as being the agent of rising Japanese painter, Hikari Shimoda. This is Caro’s first cura- tion with Corey Helford, only the third outside curator to ever assemble an exhibition for the gallery.
