  • High&Low Bureau is a curatorial duo composed of Yael Messer and Gilad Reich. They curate exhibitions, film programs, performative events and publications, while engaging with a plethora of disciplines, media and modes of artistic expression.Their curatorial practice is dedicated to the exploration of artistic strategies that reflect on, and suggest alternatives to, specific social-political conditions.

  • Los Angeles is a city often described as having no center. Its art community has turned that "disadvantage" into an advantage and given itself a license for adventure. Organizations, galleries, and artists find decentralization to be an exciting option and they establish their addresses in unexpected neighborhoods and zones in the city and even beyond, in other cities and states. What are the challenges and advantages of this programmatic and conceptual strategy? What are the risks, to organization and audience alike? Is this necessary, and if so, is it sustainable?

An installation by Daniel Wheeler
March 13 - April 24, 2004

Large-scale, experiential installation created by Los Angeles artist Daniel Wheeler. Viewers encounter limited vantage points and prescribed perspectives as they explore the 1930s yellow-tiled bathroom with sealed fixtures, travel through a tunnel into an oversized yurt and climb the metal rib-cage ladder to look down upon a profound and wry interpretation of the human body. www.danielwheeler.com

Xawery Wolski: Polvo/Proch/Dust
January 16 - February 21, 2004

The exhibition title “dust” in Spanish, Polish, and English bears homage to Wolski's global citizenry, as well as to the eventual “dust to dust” of the physical body, and the artist’s material. The exhibition highlights work completed in the last several years and includes a giant replica of a forty-foot steel chain; snaking intestinal tracks and elegant, minimal flesh forms; and rings of bulbous “clouds” suspended from fishing wire, all fashioned in smooth, skin-like terracotta.  www.galeriaomr.com
