Shulamit Nazarian on Gallery Platform Los Angeles

We are thrilled to partner with 80 Los Angeles galleries on GALLERYPLATFORM.LA, an online platform created by the newly formed Gallery Association Los Angeles (GALA), to promote engagement with local and international art audiences through weekly rotating gallery viewing rooms and original editorial content.

 

Little did we know when we titled our current exhibition Turn Back, Turn Back! that we would have to temporarily close the gallery just days after opening. The exhibition features works by Diana Yesenia Alvarado, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Rainen Knecht, Lila de Magalhaes, Elham Rokni, Summer Wheat and Tori Wrånes.

 

For our debut GP.LA presentation, we paired two established gallery artists with two emerging Los Angeles-based artists: Trenton Doyle Hancock with Diana Yesenia Alvarado, and Summer Wheat with Lila de Magalhaes.

 

Amalgamating images related to culturally significant stories, these artists examine how fables serve as guides to the unconscious, using metaphors to explore age-old fears, anxieties, and shared beliefs.

 

We invite you to explore our GALLERYPLATFORM.LA viewing room through May 27th!
