Despite what the department store windows are telling us, summer is not over. Thus, the season of dynamic group shows is yet to be concluded, affording you one more month to see top-notch surveys of emerging artists and the like.
One such noteworthy exhibition in particular is at Joshua Liner Gallery, on view from August 14 – September 2, 2010. Featuring MMG’s Kenichi Yokono and Jeremy Fish, the concise and aptly titled “Summer Group Exhibition” will act as a potential preview of the gallery’s 2010/2011 program. Also featuring works by Kris Kuksi, SWOON and twenty others, the show will surely end JLG’s summer on a high note.
For more information on the exhibition or featured artists, visit the gallery’s website.
A sincere thanks to everyone who made it out to Santa Monica for Chad Person‘s first LA solo show opening – between the massive inflatable sculpture photo-ops and a live golf ball cannon demo, we’re confident that it was a unique event in and of itself.
