The exhibition spans two galleries and college campuses, and explores the spiritual, metaphysical and alchemical in contemporary art.
The Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art and Design and the Laband Art Gallery at Loyola Marymount University also present three months of related exhibition programming.
Tapping the Third Realm presents the work of thirty-four artists who deal with ideas of spirituality through four main avenues: conjuring, communication, collaboration and chance. It explores how artists tap into another dimension, whether it be a place of spirits, ideas of heaven, or the collective unconscious. Elements of magic, witchcraft, and profound attention or intuition are evident in the artists’ creative processes. In this collection of work there are portals to the spirit world, communications with the dead, spells manifested in glass, prayers as drawings, potions as paintings, and dreams transformed into sculpture.
