Goddesses & Gods, Chinatown, Los Angeles: Until 20 July
June 22 @ 1:00 pm - July 20 @ 6:00 pm
Celebrate the solstice with a Midsummer Night along Chinatown’s historic gallery row at the opening of Goddesses & Gods, presented by Coagula Curatorial and Lisa Derrick Fine Arts.
Conceived and curated by Lisa Derrick, “Goddesses & Gods” explores concepts of apoptosis, apotheosis and auto-theogony through a range of artists drawn primarily from the Los Angeles area. Works embrace both classical and modern techniques; themes pull deities, traditional and self-created, from sacred texts, folk traditions, and artistic gnosis while eschewing rigid fundamentalism in both inspiration and execution.
Opening night on 22 June will include a DJ set by Spirits of the Night and a live performance by Marty Gold and the Gold Standard, as well as a special ritual performance.
Artists: Michelle Alb, Regina Argentin, Clive Barker, Jean-Pierre Boccara, Lili Bernard, RICK CASTRO, Alex Chaves, COOP, Aleka Corwin, Sequoia Emmanuelle, Sandra Equihua, Maria Gkinala, Sophía Gasparian, Golgo, Brian Grillo, Stephen Holman, Louis Jacinto, Shaelin Jornigan, Lizz López, Eva Malhotra Aline Mare, Pres-One, Rosie One, Parris Patton, Eva Polonkai, Kim Seltzer, Melinda R. Smith, James Stanford, Rodriel Trammell, David Van Gough, Stephanie Vega, J. Michael Walker
