Los Angeles (March 2015): During the historic drought hitting Southern California, two photographers focus their lens on the same topographies of desert and industry. Please join us at Chungking Studio on April 18th and 19th during the Month of Photography LA for an exceptional exhibition featuring the work of Bill Leigh Brewer and Osceola Refetoff.

The curator of the exhibit, art critic Shana Nys Dambrot writes about the exhibition, “The pairing of work by photographers Bill Leigh Brewer and Osceola Refetoff — contemporaries working independently — explores photography’s paradoxical capacity to simultaneously document and interpret the world around us, to elicit fresh details and construct new experiences and narratives from its raw materials. The interaction between their work is particularly well suited to exploring this dynamic, because Brewer and Refetoff are uncannily drawn to many of the same specific topographies of desert and industry, yet they return with vastly different works of art.”

Urs Fisher exhibition at MOCA Grand Avenue Los Angeles till 19th Aug.

URS Fishers

“Spread across MOCA Grand Avenue and The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, the first survey in the United States of the Swiss-born artist Urs Fischer weaves together some of his most memorable and iconic sculptural works while creating an unexpected landscape in both venues. Fischer’s world is fluctuating and unpredictable, and the pleasure that we derive from his sculpture and painting is based on our attraction to and simultaneous repulsion by the dreamlike appearances that he constructs. Fischer’s work is characterized by an unending diversity of materials, strategies, concepts, and images. Sculptures are created through an elaborate aluminum casting process, roughly hewn in wood, or cast in wax only to melt away during the run of the exhibition. The artist delights in the possibilities of surface, but even works that suggest his handmade touch turn out to have been produced through a range of digital processes in order to create the oddly surreal appearance of reality gone wrong.” – MOCA Grand Avenue.

Until 19 August 2013
