Rule No Rule


The West Coast art scene is famous for breaking, and re-making the rules. The same way that the advent of abstraction disrupted numerous art historical traditions, interdisciplinary art making blurs and shifts the expected boundaries of each medium. This show embodies the freedom and fluidity of our local art institutions, showcasing joyously uninhibited work from the “Wild West.” While paying homage to precedents set in the 1960s and ‘70s by the folks of Ferus gallery, environmental land artists, and the Californian light and space movement, these artists reinvent the rules of presentation, technique and concept, with distinctly contemporary results.

Particiapting Artists: Amy Cella, Yangyi Chen, Joseph Ferriso, Sean Howe, Charmaine Koh, Emily Meisler, Leslie Samson-Tabakin and Ans Li
