Happening 2013: LACE Benefit Art Auction is almost here!
28 June 2012 8 - 10 PM
Gina Osterloh: Group Dynamics & Improper Light | Steve Roden: Shells, Bells, Steps and Silence
Join us in celebrating the opening of our summer season! LACE will present the solo exhibitions of two Los Angeles artists, Gina Osterloh and Steve Roden.
Group Dynamics and Improper Light
For the past several years, Gina Osterloh has constructed life-size room environments through still serial performances with anonymous women, paper-maché models, and cardboard cutouts. Taking place in our main gallery, she will create three stage sets that explore the relationships between abstraction and identity, the space between individuals, and what determines “a group” within a social context. Each stage set will be unique in both material and lighting. Building upon previous working methods, the artist will conduct a series of photo and video shoots in each set with volunteers from the public, as well as cardboard cut outs of human figures.

Shells, Bells, Steps and Silence
LACE is proud to present Shells, Bells, Steps And Silence, a new video installation and film survey by Los Angeles artist Steve Roden. This poetic new work incorporates 3 research projects conducted by the artist over the past year: a collection of sea shells acquired by Roden from the estate of modern dancer Martha Graham, notes from a recent residency at the Walter Benjamin archive in Berlin, and John Cage’s seminal 4’33”, a work that Roden performed daily over the course of an entire year.
Shells, Bells, Steps And Silence will also be accompanied by a series of events, open to the public, including sound performances, a workshop, and more. Stay tuned for more information at welcometolace.org/exhibitions/view/steve-roden-shells-bells-steps-and-silence/
