ASSEMBLAGE: An Organically Grown Exhibition is a yearlong visual art project on the first floor of the Culture Lab.
ASSEMBLAGE will begin with two artists, Ioanna Pantazopoulou (New York/Athens) and Jennifer Steinkamp (Los Angeles), and additional artists will be integrated until the exhibit’s culminating event in December 2018.
Pantazopoulou’s vibrant interactive work titled Oasis consists of nine unique hammocks that weave in common objects and are hung in a carousel-like display, lush with local plants. Visitors are invited to literally lie back into these sculptures where they are simultaneously captivated by Steinkamp’s nearby projection titled Cultured, depicting large scale, gently swaying pearls. This masterfully rendered digital artwork is playfully site-specific within what was the “jewelry section” of the former department store.
This evolving exhibition will be free of charge and open to the public during the Culture Lab’s normal hours Friday-Sunday, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. with additional hours of 3 – 6 p.m. during weekdays through Art Affair.
Thank you to Culture Corps, our curatorial advisers.
