LOOK! presents a collection of Los Angeles and San Francisco based artists employing a variety of mediums: paintings, sculpture, collage, drawing and installation. Curated by Emily Sills, the exhibition includes artists Deedee Cheriel, Courtney Duncan, Katrin Jurati, Katie Lewis, Lumivalkoinen, Sam Lubicz, Sarah Jean Madson, Tim Presley, Bailey Salisbury, Carlos Saul Laszlo and Daren Wilson.
LOOK! constructs sporadic interconnectedness through the relationship of the different pieces to each other. The cohesion of the show is the story of the art itself and the story each artist tells via their medium. Adapted from the School of Language Poets’ concept of “The New Sentence,” LOOK! takes the idea of object referentially or objects posed for friction to create meaning. The exhibit offer lapses and layers so the mind can move freely from one subject to other, welcoming the onlooker to participate and bring their own interpretation or unedited stream of consciousness. LOOK! is to stay in a perpetual beginning where each piece comments on and are commented on by the surrounding pieces.
