Kara Tanaka

This first survey exhibition of Los Angeles based artist Kara Tanaka spans her work from 2005-2011. The exhibit will feature a cross section of Tanaka’s work, which has often explored the central themes of transcendence through her own aesthetic synthesis that merges the primitive with the futuristic.  

Her work often reveals the shared relationship between different forms of religious mysticism and the metaphysical undertones of our own technological progress.

the long-lasting intimacy of strangers

Ai Hasegawa, I wanna deliver a dolphin, 2013, HD video, TRT 00:02:39     

On view: March 26, 2016 - May 21, 2016

the long-lasting intimacy of strangers is a group exhibition that engages principles of co-evolution. Looking at nature and the social meanings we make around origins and inter-species interactions, the works in the exhibition bring out the fantastical dormant within the seemingly ordinary objects that surround us: stones, plants, animals and bacteria. The artists in the exhibition probe our ideas around animacy, collaborating with monstrous rocks, extinct flowers, and alchemical microbes. The group exhibition is curated by Los Angeles-based artist Candice Lin.

Featuring artists: Christina Agapakis, Mehraneh Atashi, Bruce Bickford, Ai Hasegawa, Ulrik Heltoft, Miljohn Ruperto (with Aimee de Jongh), and Sissel Tolaas

Opening reception: March 26, 2016 from 6 - 8p.m.

Gallery hours: Monday through Thursday & Saturday, 12-5 pm.

Admission to the Luckman Gallery is free of charge.

On view: January 16 - March 12, 2016

PAIN POINT SCHICHT
organized by Karin Mayr and Martin Sturm

Karin Mayr and Martin Sturm formed a multimedia collaborative based out of Vienna, Austria that creates projects that combine their artistic work with their curatorial practice. They developed this unique combination when they co-founded the artist-run space project LOVE_ in Vienna, a composite of art and curation that counteracted the conventional showcasing of their work through an integrative approach to exhibition design. For their exhibition Pain Point Schicht at the Luckman Gallery, they will combine this unique blend of artistic creation and curation by working with a selection of European artists who work outside the normal exhibition circuit.

Featured artists: Albert Allgaier, Cara Chan, Gabriele Edlbauer, Andrea Lüth, Karin Mayr, Noële Ody, Gerald Rossbacher, Martin Sturm, and Jakub Vrba.

This exhibition was funded in part by the generous support of the Austrian Consulate General Los Angeles, Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Government of Upper Austria, and Government of Tyrol.

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 16, 6-8 pm.

Gallery hours: Monday through Thursday & Saturday, 12-5 pm.

Admission to the Luckman Gallery is free of charge.

ANDY FEDAK

On view: November 7, 2015 - December 19, 2015

Utilizing stereoscopic projection and computer graphic techniques appropriated from contemporary Hollywood production, Andy Fedak augments the world around him into surreal narrative vignettes focusing on anxiety, consciousness, anarchism, and revelation.  Some macabre, others humerous, each piece digs deeper into an unknown territory that is uncanny, yet familiar. You Have Nothing to Worry About is Andy Fedak's first solo exhibition that comprehensively situates rarely-seen past projects alongside new work.

 

Opening Reception: Saturday, November 7, 6-8 p.m.  

Gallery hours: Monday through Thursday & Saturday, 12-5 p.m. 

Admission to the Luckman Gallery is free of charge.
