About

Opening February 28th, the Annenberg Community Beach House Gallery in Santa Monica will host a group show of contemporary artists who share the experience of being outsiders in Donald Trump's America. In "Personal Narrative", curators Diane Williams and Sheli Silverio have brought together artists from diverse backgrounds of immigrant diaspora and gender identity.

Intending to stimulate conversation, inspire creativity and increase understanding of contemporary art in the context of today’s society, the curators have collected works that raise issues and question of both cultural and social consciousness. A panel discussion on May 6th underlines this awareness with a dialogue about process and experiences as 21st century artists living and working in Los Angeles.

The work explores materials that promote a sensory experience and story lines from contemporary artists whose works are experimental, provisional, gestural and instinctive. Each artist possesses an individual approach to his or her artistic methods, working and reworking in a range of technique and materials. These themes are examined in their individual bodies of work.

Participating artists:

Mardi De Veuve Alexis, Susan Amorde, Terry Arena, Chenhung Chen, Rick Dallago, Bibi Davidson, Dwora Fried, JJ L’heureux, Tom Lasley, Erika Lizee, Randi Matushevitz, Malka Nedivi, Robert Nelson, Linda Sue Price, Kristine Schomaker, Sheli Silverio, Robert Soffian, Diane Williams.
