ARTISTS: GAL AMIRAM AND SHASHA DOTHAN
This is Not Halfway begins in the transmutation of conditions of vision and experience that define local living in LA: in the eclectic sprawling architecture, the never-ending horizon line of mountains and deserts revealed in the unseen edges of the highway, diverse communal lives, endless congestions, and exceptional cultural richness. Observing works by emerging Israeli artists, this exhibition delves into the junctures of personal and national identities, and their fluctuating transformations. Specifically, it examines the impact of Los Angeles on the viewpoint of alien artists that have made it their home. Suggesting the urban landscape is a central protagonist of the artistic action, this exhibition traces the city in the work, and the work within the city.
