Past Exhibitions 2005

Step into Liquid: Jane Callister, Pia Fries, James Hayward, Michael Reafsnyder, David Reed
Guest Curator: Dave Hickey
December 3, 2005 - January 28, 2006

In post-war American abstraction, wet became the new deep. The idea of wetness became a primary metaphor for a whole manner of painting in which the fluidity of the surface provides the narrativity once provided by pictorial depth. Since most wet painting in recent years has been in the figurative idiom, Guest Curator Dave Hickey revisits this tradition of abstraction in some of its current manifestations in Southern California where the language of liquidity has its own iconography.

Standards of Reality: Five Artists from Barcelona
Martí Anson, Carles Congost, Pep Duran, Mabel Palacín, Tere Recarens
A video lounge selected by Ferran Barenblit, Director, Centre d’Art Santa Mònica, Barcelona
June 22 - July 30, 2005

In this Los Angeles debut exhibition, the curator reunites the video work of five artists from Barcelona who have exhibited at the Centre d’Art Santa Mònica in Barcelona (CASM) as part of the institution’s mission to support new work by local and international artists. Mr. Barenblit’s selection reflects on three primary themes he consistently finds in the work of so many contemporary artists: the continuous critique of reality and its underlying inherent contradictions; the power of the moving image in contemporary culture; and the role of the individual in a conflicted society.
