  Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery’s Juried Exhibition 2018 Fast approaching on July 26 – Sept 16. 2018

Written By: Marcelle - Jul• 15•18

 This topically-themed Juried Exhibition fast approaching on July 26, exploring the concept of truth and identity politics (amongst other themes).

  Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery’s Juried Exhibition 2018 is a large-scale group exhibition introducing a new generation of LA artists from July 26 – Sept 16.  Awarded biannually by the Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), the pioneering Juried exhibitions have been running for six decades and this year’s show builds on its legacy, providing a platform for emerging artists in SoCal since 1953 to exhibit at one of the country’s few remaining municipal art galleries. Featuring students & recent graduates from the region’s leading MFA programs, the exhibit introduces a new generation of LA artists with this year’s show exploring and igniting conversations around topical themes from identity politics and intersectionality to ‘prepper’ culture and psychoanalytic theory; as well as the relationship between images and truth in a digital age at a time when the concept of “truth” is being questioned.

School of Art, Mint Gallery: Hannah Varamini, MFA 1, Art Program

The exhibition continues to be a hotbed for emerging talent with this years show featuring the work of over 50 students and recent graduates across artistic disciplines from painting and ceramics to photography and installation.
Selected from an open call for entries by a prestigious jury panel including: Jonathan Griffin, art critic; Jamillah James, Curator, Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and Steven Nelson, Professor of African and African American Art History, UCLA.
Notable works include Hannah Varamini’s dramatic site-specific seaweed installation, Colony Reprise, and Gal Amiram’s Doubles, a monumental 24-foot inkjet print, which critiques the manipulation of images through digital technology as well as Lena Daly’s sculptural installation ReCharge Battery, employing UV light and ultrasound.
There will be vibrant programming throughout the run including a conversation about how artists get representation on Sun, Aug 26 at 2pm and a closing day performance on Sat, Sept 15 at 2pm by Black Salt Collective with live sets of eclectic sounds complemented by interactive live video-mixing and spontaneous performance.
