  • Composer Kubilay Üner offers a reactive experience with a live presentation of a new composition made in response to the exhibition Angie Bray: Shhhh. The performance will be interspersed with conversation between Üner and Bray.

  • Kathryn Andrews gets some of her best ideas driving around Los Angeles, where the visual contradictions she sees every day find their way into her art. Andrews, who is originally from Mobile, Alabama, is known for the commonplace objects she fabricates from highly polished and painted metal, into which she incorporates inexpensive or borrowed finds, including rented Hollywood props.

Joan Tanner: On Tenderhooks
July 22 - September 23, 2006

Large-scale installation created by Southern California artist Joan Tanner, curated by Meg Linton, Director of the Ben Maltz Gallery. Using raw materials like Blister-Pac, corrugated plastic paneling, galvanized metal, air-duct filters, plywood, industrialized coating, light and video, Tanner assembles a precarious environment to tackle the visual paradox of architectonic order and disintegration—ordering to achieve perfection and humankind’s inability to escape imperfection. www.joantanner.com

the epitaph project: 1995 -
A multimedia installation by Joyce Burstein
June 17 - August 31, 2006   Bolsky Gallery

Joyce Burstein began the epitaph project in 1995 by securing a mortgage for a plot at Hollywood Forever, a notable and historic cemetery adjacent to Paramount Studios in Los Angeles. The public artwork exists as a tombstone carved from slate like a chalkboard and is accompanied by a bronze box containing chalk. Passersby are invited to write an epitaph on the stone, and then she collects these sometimes profound or irreverent compositions with a photograph.  The project has extended into a multi-media presentation in the Bolsky Gallery and a forthcoming book with an essay by Peter Lamborn Wilson that enlists the help of all spectators in a process of self-discovery about death and life, as one does not exist without the other.  www.epitaphproject.com

Infrasense
An installation by KIT and Robert Saucier
May 5 - July 1, 2006

Created by KIT, a fluxing collaborative team of international artists, writers, architects and programmers who have been active since 1995, and Canadian artist Robert Saucier. The artists are working with terminology adopted by Internet technology like worms, back doors, Trojan horses, and bugs that are metaphors for viral activities happening to our desktops and laptops in our work and home environments. The Infrasense project takes the Trojan horse and the bug—two digitally bound elements that live and replicate on the Internet—and makes them physical entities inside the gallery controlled partially by the Internet and visitor.  www.kitcollaboration.net

From the Island of Misfit Toys
February 10 - April 15, 2006

Group show that looks at how fine artists are manipulating toys to create sculpture, video, and music that push the boundaries physically, emotionally, or conceptually to address larger themes of consumerism, the surrogate, and death. Through exaggeration of scale, excessive use of material, and do-it-yourself methods, this exhibition introduces a set of artists who are blurring the lines between creative fields and taking toys to humorous, thoughtful, and poignant places.
Artists: Elizabeth Berdann (blu), Deborah Brown, Nathan Cabrera, Jonathan Callan, Jeroen de Vries, Dan Goodsell, Kelly Heaton, Walter Martin & Paloma Muñoz, Anne Walsh, and 8 Bit Weapon
