Olga de Amaral September 9 - October 10
Reception September 9, 6-8pm
Olga de Amaral transforms two-dimensional textiles into luminous three-dimensional objects using fiber, gesso, acrylic and precious metals. Amaral’s exhibition features her mixed-media work with gold, and runs concurrent with the Getty Center’s exhibition, Golden Kingdoms: Luxury and Legacy in the Ancient Americas. Amaral’s art is included in many collections, including: the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the National Gallery, Washington, D.C., and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris.
Fernando de Szyszlo October 14 - November 14
Reception October 14, 6-8pm
Beginning in the late 1950’s, Fernando de Szyszlo created an abstract language that combined the gestural power of Abstract Expressionism with forms and colors inspired by Peru’s Pre-Hispanic cultures. Szyszlo’s paintings distill vast areas of culture into a visual language that is his own. Szyszlo’s paintings are in the collections of the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, the Solomon Guggenheim Museum, New York, and other important institutions.
Francisco Toledo November 18 - January 13
Reception November 18, 6-8pm
Francisco Toledo is an artist of vast formal range and varied iconography. Individual works may combine oil paint, watercolor, sand and collage. More than a formal enlivening of his art, Toledo’s use of diverse materials reflects a worldview unbounded by categorization and hierarchy. This exhibition will feature the artist’s recent self-portraits. Toledo’s solo exhibitions include: the XLVII Venice Biennale, Venice, the Whitechapel Gallery, London, and the Reina Sofía Museum, Madrid.
Arnaldo Roche January 20 - February 24
Reception January 20 6-8pm
Roche’s paintings are densely layered, worked in a combination of techniques, including frottage (rubbing), grattage (scraping) and monotype (printing). Roche’s paintings explore issues of identity, memory, and our shared vulnerabilities to natural disaster. Roche has exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), and other institutions.
