Lawndale Art Center will present four new exhibitions: ArtFiction: Ten Fictional Modernists from Texas, Traded, Mystic Dumb-Dumb, and Idiot Machines/Infinity Loops.

  • In the John M. O'Quinn Gallery, ArtFiction, curated by Rino Pizzi, involves exchanges between ten writers, visual artists and actors/performers addressing the relations between art production and critical narratives and the effect artists' biographies have on the public perception of their work.
  • In the Cecily E. Horton Gallery, Traded is a group exhibition consisting of artists who have traded works with one another curated by James Scheuren. The exhibition presents an artistic sensibility from the perspective of the artist, as opposed to the collector/curator, and also evidences a form of artistic exchange that circumvents the traditional art market.
  • Joe Wooten presents new mixed media collage works in the Grace R. Cavnar Gallery for the exhibition Mystic Dumb-Dumb.
  • In the Project Space, Trey Duvall's Idiot Machines/Infinity Loops include a series of work emphasizing humor, futility and failure consisting of closed loop systems and tools that don't achieve a purposeful outcome echo the ridiculous humor of quotidian life. 

Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display through October 22.
