Lawndale Art Center presents Almendra Castillo, Cinthia Gomez & Yma Luis: Satellite opening reception
Almendra Castillo, Cinthia Gomez, and Yma Luis attempt to recreate a single body of work based upon a series of letters describing each artists sculpture that is then passed on to the next artist for recreation all the while without ever seeing the other pieces. The act is reminiscent of playing a game of "Telephone," where the original message must be interpreted through a series of broken descriptions carried on by the last interpreter. The written pages carry the descriptions over distances; we are in a way functioning as blind satellites relying on our perceived sense of understanding (of one another) and ability to interpret.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 27.
