the long-lasting intimacy of strangers
Luckman Gallery, Cal State L.A.
March 26, 2016 – May 21, 2016
the long-lasting intimacy of strangers is a group exhibition that engages principles of co-evolution. Looking at nature and the social meanings we make around origins and inter-species interactions, the works in the exhibition bring out the fantastical dormant within the seemingly ordinary objects that surround us: stones, plants, animals and bacteria. The artists in the exhibition probe our ideas around animacy, collaborating with monstrous rocks, extinct flowers, and alchemical microbes. The group exhibition is curated by Los Angeles-based artist Candice Lin, and features artists Christina Agapakis, Mehraneh Atashi, Bruce Bickford, Ai Hasegawa, Ulrik Heltoft, Miljohn Ruperto (with Aimee de Jongh), and Sissel Tolaas.
