The beginning of the year is the ideal time to proclaim one’s personal and creative intentions for the next orbit around the sun. Opening with a public reception, 4 to 6 p.m., January 5th, at Studio Channel Islands in Camarillo, the New Revolutions exhibition rings in the new year by celebrating artists from all over expressing their ambitions for 2019.
In this year, marking the 50th anniversary of the moon landings, we ask artists to consider the bigger picture: the great movements through time and space which we travel through in a year. Artists are invited to make a statement about the upcoming year and consider what 2019 might hold for all our futures, using many different mediums including performance, video, sound, sculpture, and/or visual artistic expression.
Los Angeles artist and curator Max Presneill serves as the juror for this exhibit. An abstract painter with works that explore sub-cultural iconography and masculine identity, he has exhibited throughout the world including New York, London, Amsterdam, Paris, and many more cities. He is currently the Director and Head Curator of the Torrance Art Museum and the Founder of Durden and Ray, an artists collaborative group and gallery in Los Angeles, as well as Founder and Curatorial Director of ARTRA Curatorial, an independent, voluntary, curatorial projects management team.
