Los Angeles, CA- Morono Kiang Gallery presents Edifice Cache, Curated by Shervin Shahbazi and featuring new works by by Augustine Kofie, John Carr, Favianna Rodriguez and Yuri Shimojo.
The exhibition will run from January 18 to February 19, 2011. The first of four receptions for the artists will be held on Saturday January 22, from 6-9 pm.
The concept of Edifice Cache is based on the idea of Exquisite Corpse whereby a work of art is created through the collaboration of a group of artists who add their work to components of, in this case, a single installation in a sequential order. Over the course of four weeks, Augustine Kofie, John Carr, Favianna Rodriguez and Yuri Shimojo will each proceed to create their own works, which will be inlayed into Russek’s original creation.
As the artists work on creating the installation “the Edifice”, their processes will be recorded on time-lapse video and will be on display as the memory component, “the Cache”, of the exhibit. Sketches and pieces of the process from all involved will also be on display.
Starting on January 18, 2011 the public is invited to come and witness artists at work during gallery’s regular business hours. At the end of each week on the corresponding Saturday there will be a reception for the finishing team and the following component will be in place for the next team.
Edifice Cache will be created from January 18 – February 19, 2011
Opening reception for each artist team will be held on:
Saturday Jan 22, 2011 6-9 pm – Augustine Kofie
Saturday Jan 29, 2011 6-9 pm – John Carr
Saturday Feb 5, 2011 6-9 pm – Favianna Rodriguez
