AGCC is pleased to announce the opening of Uplifting Tales and Eroded Histories, an installation by local artists Richard Turner, Michael Davis and Paul Harris. This exhibition presents a speculative geo-history of the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

Uplifting Tales and Eroded Histories takes its inspiration from the unsettled geology of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The exhibition invites us to read rock as a text that is both history and prophecy in two distinct installations. Entering the exhibition, viewers find themselves in a space that is intentionally disorienting, as if it had been shaken by a recent earthquake. The stability of the grid is abandoned in favor of unpredictable angles, tumbled planes and a jarring video of the San Pedro famous locale, Sunken City.

The ambiance of the second gallery is a deliberate contrast. It is a quiet, stable space that summons viewers to sit with stones, contemplate them, and in doing so, begin to understand what they can tell us about their journey through deep time and our own short-lived moment on planet earth.

Join us for the opening reception on January 21st, 3-5pm. The exhibition runs through March 25th.
