Anxiety Group Show – Los Angeles

November 4th - December 16th, 2016

“Anxiety” engages with the common suggestion that art is a reflection of society. Art can serve as an expressive platform for individuals, groups, as well as society as a whole, especially accessible when radical changes or impactful events occur. It is powerful enough to portray the current emotions of a society, exposing harsh and subtle truths, while encouraging a change for the better.

The exhibition explores and addresses the idea of art as a vehicle to illustrate and illuminate events and experiences. “Anxiety” addresses the unnerving tension of the strange climate of present day. Whether personal, political, economic, social, or geographical, it’s undeniably a strange moment on every macro and micro level. This show is an investigation of individual responses to a collective uneasiness.
