 Biomorphic Art in Los Angeles

The exhibit will open with a talk by Preston Zappos and three attending artists at 4:30p.m. Oct. 3, 2019 in Room 149 of the Dexter (Bldg. #34) on campus. A reception will follow at 5:30p.m. in the gallery, located on the ground floor of the Dexter Building (No. 34).

Undertones: Biomorphic Art in Los Angeles is an exhibition curated by Lindsay Preston Zappos, including eight Los Angeles-based artists whose work abstractly alludes to the body across mediums of sculpture, painting, and drawing. Beyond references to organic forms, the exhibition spans an array of themes – from technology to power to feminism – while steadfastly arguing for work that delights in beauty, composition, and pleasure.
