Mark Moore Gallery artist Stephanie Washburn will featured in “This Was Funny Yesterday” at UC Santa Barbara (September 27 — October 19) – and exhibition that explores the use of humor in classic conceptual art, and extends to a broad array of more recent practice. Including Vito Acconci, Brian Bress, John Divola, Martin Kersels, Allison Miller, Camilo Ontiveros, Stephanie Washburn, and the collective D3, this exhibition showcases a kind of humor found nestled at the unlikely intersection of the physical world and abstract thought.
“This Was Funny Yesterday” can be seen in Building 494, in the CCS Gallery, 1-5pm Tuesday through Friday. Additionally, an opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 4 from 6:30 – 7:30pm, following a 1C Colloquium presentation with Jane Mulfinger and Stephanie Washburn, from 5 – 6:30 PM, at Embarcadero Hall.
It is with great excitement that Mark Moore Gallery announces their newest public project: a mural by San Francisco-based artist, Andrew Schoultz.
Known for his large-scale whirlwind frenzy of military horses, flags, tornadoes, seeing eyes, and other imperialistic icons, Schoultz’s mural will be a permanent feature on the west-facing wall of Mark Moore Gallery’s stand-alone building. With solo public murals in cities such as San Francisco, Indonesia, and Toronto, Schoultz is eager to produce his first wall in Los Angeles. Follow Mark Moore Gallery on Facebook and Twitter to stay abreast of his progress, and watch the full transformation unfold…
