Closing Reception for Inadvertent Protagonists by HK Zamani


There will be a Closing Reception for the exhibit on Saturday, October 31, 14:00-20:00.

515 is pleased to host Inadvertent Protagonists a one person exhibit of works by HK Zamani. The gallery is open on Saturdays, 14:00-20:00. Walk-in viewing is allowed with masks and social distancing. It is also open by appointment during the week. The conversation with Dr. jill moniz is available at www.515bendix.com. The gallery is located in the Bendix Building on the 5thfloor.
Conflating three-dimensional and two-dimensional forms is a recurring theme in Zamani’s work of the last three decades, with sculpture representing the body and painting representing the immaterial. His new works, Inadvertent Protagonists focus on the idea of coexistence in their imageries: the paintings actively converse with their sculptural counterparts. As an Iranian-American artist he continues to explore his cultural duality by superimposing the values of both cultures in his work. The binary character structure of these new explorations is a preoccupation with dualities, within self or in contrast to others, and the goal of coexistence without violence
HK Zamani is a multidisciplinary artist and curator, and founder of PØST, an alternative exhibition space in Los Angeles (1995-2020), where more than five hundred exhibits have been hosted. His abstract paintings are terse and meditative, painterly and deliberately composed. These formal abstractions are inspired by earlier works in which the symbolic appearance of a dome or tent structure is recurring. Interested in the shifting nature of perception and optics, Zamani has drawn from a varied sensory spectrum ranging from the ascetic to the psychedelic. He has exhibited extensively, is a recipient of COLA and CCF Grants, and is in the collections of LA County Museum of Art and Berkley Museum of Art.
