Curated by isthmus
5228 S. Harper Ave

Hosted by DOVA temporary
Presented here is an array of artists creating work in a variety of media that playfully addresses the concept of "revolutions," resulting in a multiplicity of interpretations: abstract, formal, technological, social and political. One goal of this project seeks to establish a curatorial tradition based on continuous change, rotation and re-figuration. Ferris Gallery points not only to the revolutionary LA space, but also the great wheel in Hyde Park, both of which sought to signal their locale as a cultural destination. As a whole, isthmus presents a negotiable set of constraints regarding the notion of "revolutions" and its contemporary context.
