LA Weekly: Irrational Exhibits 9: Reports from the Field

By Catherine Wagley

Sixteen artists will present new work all at once this week at “Irrational Exhibits 9: Reports from the Field” at LACE. Part of a series launched in 2001, “Irrational Exhibits” are conceived as live group shows. The artists perform at the same time, some all evening long. Liz Nurenberg, who makes seductive conversation pieces meant to be worn by two people at once (maybe you put your heads into a soft sculpture, so that you face each other), will perform. So will Liz Young, who’s made oversized stuffed animals and videos about taxidermy.

Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions presents Irrational Exhibits 9: Reports From the Field on June 8, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.

The one-night event features live art curated by Deborah Oliver and includes works by Claudia Bucher, Ryan Bulis and Brian Black, Kent Anderson Butler, Marsian De Lellis, Monica Duncan and Samantha Mohr, Kristina Faragher, Janice Gomez, Flora Kao, Curt LeMieux, Juan Meneses, Thinh Nguyen, Liz Nurenberg, Nancy Popp, Bradford Chan Prairie, Lara Salmon, and Liz Young.

Sixteen new works will be presented in this one night only performance exhibition centering on the artist’s “constructs” of our rapidly changing social landscape and reflecting their “reports from the field” in a new millennium reality. This is a real time event.   Explore the artwork while performance actions are taking place. Observe how artists describe and comprehend shifting realities, whether social, political or personal. How do we, as artists, negotiate these shifts as they arise? How do we stay connected within a confused cultural fabric? How do we function in an increasingly dense physical environment?

Tickets are $10. Discounted tickets for students/seniors are $8 w/I.D. Tickets will be available at the door.
