The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery is pleased to announce Juried Exhibition 2018, a group exhibition introducing a new generation of Los Angeles artists.

About

Featuring students and recent graduates from the region’s leading MFA programs, the works in the exhibition encompass a variety of media, including performance, video, sculpture, painting, ceramics, photography, and installation. This large-scale exhibition takes the pulse of contemporary art practice in the city.

The opening reception of Juried Exhibition 2018 will feature a special performance by Rebecca Bruno, the founder of HomeLA, with Samantha Mohr. Other notable works include Hannah Varamini’s dramatic site-specific seaweed installation, Colony Reprise, and Gal Amiram’s Doubles, a monumental 24 foot inkjet print, which critiques the manipulation of images through digital technology.

Also not to be missed are Lena Daly’s sculptural installation ReCharge Battery, employing UV light and ultrasound, Aniko Kuikka’s video installation, White Sugar, which offers a compelling fairytale for the modern age, and Adee Roberson’s vibrant paintings that speak to African diasporic memory.

Artists were selected from an open call for entries by a jury comprising Jonathan Griffin, art critic; Jamillah James, Curator, Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and Steven Nelson, Professor of African and African American Art History, UCLA. The 2018 edition of the juried exhibition builds on the legacy of this pioneering exhibition, which historically has provided a platform for emerging artists in Southern California since 1953.
