Los Angeles Art Association presents new exhibitions opening Saturday October 11th, 2014 from 6:00-9:00pm at Gallery 825 in West Hollywood. Their north gallery will feature Inforamtionary, a group exhibition demonstrating the role of visual information in today’s information culture, juried by Herair & Lori Garboushian of the Beverly Hill-based Garboushian Gallery.
Informationary also features in “Multiple Feeds,” an online and gallery video presentation with a unique design to allow the viewing audience to create and post their own video content in response to the videos by LAAA artists Dani Dodge, Tanya Nolan and Kristine Schomaker. These LAAA artists’ videos will be played alongside the videos created in response at Gallery 825, to encourage a dialog between the LAAA artists and the audience.
LAAA will also feature solo exhibitions by Tom Lamb and Joan Wulf. Lamb, a landscape and ethnographic photographer, implements pioneering trends in new media. His new body of work, “Marks on the Land:The View From Here,” examines how we interact with the planet’s most valuable but increasingly threatened resources. “Marks on the Land” is comprised of compelling photos from the air and the ground, are of the built and un-built, often abandoned or in transition landscapes.
In her new series “Catalyst”, Joan Wulf experiments with fire as catalyst, medium and method of art creation. Wulf’s process consists of licking a surface of paper, wood or raw canvas with a flame to harness the unpredictable patterns of smoke. In this interchange with fire, she balances chance and choice, playing with cause and effect, order and disorder.
