Las Cienegas Projects is proud to present Landscape Memories Revisited, an exhibition curated by Steven Hull.  Based around the notion of the landscape and its multiple interpretations, whether through memories or through pre-constructed images from literature and popular media, the exhibition takes the position that every fragment of the physical world  exists only through our memories and experiences of it.  Hence, the term "landscape" not only refers to physical settings but may also include people, events, ideas, and concepts subject to memory.  These memories in turn become highly personalized landscapes.

This exhibition is the sequel to Landscape Memories, originally hosted at Rosamund Felson Gallery in 1999. Landscape Memories Revisited will feature a range of works, diverse in both scale and medium, by an outstanding selection of local and international artists (the majority of whom were in the original exhibition) including Derek Boshier, Tami Demaree, Charles Gaines, Isabell Heimerdinger, Steven Hull, Jonathan Monk, Paul Noble, Stephan Pascher, Terri Phillips and Georgina Starr.  A publication will accompany the exhibition, which features works by all the artists and two fictional texts by Tony White and Heidi-Annette Hall. (Main Gallery)

"Immergence": installation by the artist Patrick Killoran in which a Coke machine is altered to serve as the entrance and exit to the gallery's main exhibition space. (Project Space)

"Dark Web": a new series of 8 paintings by British pop artist Derek Boshier.  Boshier's work can be found in  prominent collections around the world including the Tate Gallery, London, MOMA and the Brooklyn Museum, New York, and the Centre Pompidou, Paris. (Back Room)
