The Torrance Art Museum presents ZOOM, a survey of current developments in contemporary artistic practices from California, Arizona, Nevada, and Baja artists.
In its inaugural year ZOOM will break new ground and investigate a myriad of directions and movements in contemporary art that progress beyond the traditional institutionalized juried show. ZOOM sets a new benchmark with an un-paralleled open application for a museum survey exhibition. The exhibition will seek to reflect current trends, track developments in contemporary practices and explore associations between the regional geographical areas.
Los Angeles is considered one of the most dynamic cities globally for the creation of contemporary art and Torrance sits in the midst of this activity. ZOOM at TAM seeks to redefine this creative hub for contemporary art to include a larger geographical context and expand our local remit to include a larger swath of artists that have a direct influence on the cultural dialogues of our time. As we compare and contrast various art practices found in this larger region of influence we will present a more comprehensive view of current artistic developments regionally and further afield.
