Please join us for a late summer closing reception to celebrate the artists included in our exhibition When we were young featuring John Divola, Christina Fernandez, Ron Jude, Mark Ruwedel and Catherine Wagner.
The exhibition includes some of the earliest works ever produced by the artists, working through concerns of the photographic medium in roughly the years 1970-1985/2010 is visible in the artists’ varied approaches. Individually, the works in the exhibition interrogate the notion of photograph as document, about the gaps inherent to narrative, and images existing not for a market, but for dialogue and contemplation as strategies to move individual practices and the photographic medium forward. The exhibition has the benefit of retrospectively looking at past moments of artistic success and placing them on a larger trajectory of artistic mastery.
The reception will begin tonight from 5-7pm at Gallery Luisotti (2525 Michigan Ave A2, Santa Monica, CA 90404). For inquiries please call 310-453-0043.
