Curated by isthmus
October 10 – November 15, 2008
Opening reception: Friday, October 10, 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
DOVA temporary is pleased to join the Ferris Gallery in presenting the curatorial group isthmus in their second project, REVOLUTIONS.
Exhibited here is an array of artists creating work in a variety of media that playfully addresses the concept of “revolutions,” resulting in a multiplicity of interpretations: abstract, formal, technological, social and political. One goal of this project seeks to establish a curatorial tradition based on continuous change, rotation and re-figuration. Ferris Gallery points not only to the revolutionary LA space of the late 1950s and early 1960s, but also the Great Wheel in Hyde Park, both of which sought to signal their locale as a cultural destination. As a whole, isthmus presents a negotiable set of constraints regarding the notion of “revolutions” and its contemporary context.
