Opening Reception, July 22, 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery is pleased to announce Juried Exhibition 2018, a group exhibition introducing a new generation of Los Angeles artists who are taking the pulse of contemporary art practice in the city.
Featuring students and recent graduates from the region’s leading MFA programs, the works in the exhibition represent a variety of mediums, including performance, video, sculpture, painting, ceramics, photography, and installation. The artists also explore a wide range of themes including identity politics and intersectionality; ‘prepper’ culture and psychoanalytic theory; as well as more sustained critiques of the relationship between images and truth in a digital age.
The opening reception of Juried Exhibition 2018, July 22 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery will feature a special performance by Rebecca Bruno, the founder of HomeLA.
Artists were selected from an open call for entries by a jury comprised of Jonathan Griffin, art critic; Jamillah James, Curator, Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and Steven Nelson, Professor of African and African American Art History, UCLA.
The 2018 edition of Juried Exhibition continues to build on its legacy beginning in 1953 of providing a platform for emerging artists in Southern California.
