Curators are in the spotlight at Gabba Gallery with “Curate This, Part Deux,” showing their art in the second installment of this popular group show. You’ll see work from many well known artists who curate, and discover that many curators have a sideline as artists. Full disclosure: I am the latter, and each time I have participated in this show, it give me a new appreciation for artists–and for gallery directors.
This year Gabba Gallery curators Jason Ostro and Phil Santos have assembled artis/curators whose work is a testament to their vision for the Los Angeles art scene. Artists include: A.S. Ashley, Agapito Doronio, Britt Harrison, Dani Dodge, Daniel Rolnik, David Brady, David Cedeño, Huss Hardan, Jason Ostro, Juri Koll, Kat Monroe, Daniella Batsheva, Kristine Schomaker, Lisa Derrick, Mark Farina, Mark Satterlee, Mark Waldman, Mitchelito Orquiola, Nathan Cartwright, Osceola Refetoff, Peter Goode, Phil Santos, Radhika Hersey, Dicapria, Shana Nys Dambrot, Skye Amber Sweet, and Ted Meyer.
Curate This 2 opens on February 6, 2016 and will be on view through February 26, 2016. A reception will take place on Saturday, February 6, from 7 – 11 p.m. and is sponsored by Blick on Beverly, Hubert’s and Perrier.
