Try To Forget: A Group Show


Dates:
Sat Mar 08, 2014 20:00 - Sat Mar 22, 2014

Location:
Los Angeles, California
United States of America

In a world where the lines between IRL and URL dissolve through limitless manipulation, we function in communication networks as both alienated subject and mediated object. Virtually extended, representations of history, society, adolescence, youth, and ourselves are commonly perceived as lived experience.  Instruments and vessels of absorption, we inhabit an age where information and value, notions of private and public, as well as distinctions between the natural and the neutralized, collapse into meaningless noise.  Like the Internet itself, the visual and sound artists showcased here recode the past through rearranging fragments into new hybrid forms and futures. The beauty of this new habitat is juxtaposed in a political climate with recurring themes of corruption, immortality, violence, and the invasion of basic privacies.  Deeply entrenched in a lifestyle of manufactured need, looking back less than twenty years ago seems to unearth an eternity of waste.  Overloaded and overwhelmed, the only hope is to Try To Forget.

The Grey Ones, a live performance by the illusory trio WIFE


Dates:
Thu Aug 22, 2013 19:00 - Thu Aug 22, 2013

Location:
Los Angeles, California
United States of America

INSTALL:WeHo and Phyllis Navidad in conjunction with We Open Art Houses (WOAH), MKL Gallery, and FruitFlyLife proudly present The Grey Ones, a performance by illusory LA artist trio WIFE.

Combining surrealist animations with original choreography, costumes, and music, WIFE is an all sensory theatrical experience. Utilizing dance as a vehicle for storytelling, The Grey Ones juxtaposes live projection mapping with ephemeral, fluid movements and statuesque, saintly silhouettes to create a narrative on the evolution of time. Premiering at the 2011 TEDxSoCal event and later airing on The Creator’s Project, The Grey Ones features an original score from electronic music artist Amon Tobin. WIFE has been featured at The Getty's Pacific Standard Time, Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum, Honor Fraser, Human Resources, Pieter Performance Space, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), and more.


Reception 7PM featuring pop-up boutique from mobile retail platform VCR (Vintage Contemporary Reconstructed) and DJs Heidi and Jeniluv. WIFE performance at 9PM.
Reserve tickets online. RSVP on Facebook.
