Studio Visit: Rebecca Farr, The Spiritual Embodiment of Empathy
“Empathy makes you imagine the sensation of the torture, of the hunger, of the loss. You make that person into yourself, you inscribe their suffering on your body or heart or mind…Physical pain defines the physical boundaries of the self but these identifications define a larger self, a map of affections and alliances, and the limits of this psychic self are nothing more or less than the limits of love.”  ~Rebecca Solnit, The Faraway ...

Klowden Mann
6023 Washington Blvd
November 18–December 23
In Anastasia Douka and Shana Hoehn’s current two-person show, the past is pulled into the present while the present is pushed into antiquity. In The wife (Oz) 2017 (modified paper cast of “Aspasia” by Mara Karetsou, 1983), 2017, Douka recasts Karetsou’s bust of Pericles’s mistress from a public sculpture in Athens, adorning the figure’s head with a funnel.

Khôra at Mt. San Antonio College Art Gallery
By Larry Gipe
Through December 7th
It’s hard to imagine a slipperier siting for an exhibition than “Khôra”, an evocative three-person show continuing until December 7th at Mt. SAC Art Gallery. To reckon with the meaning of the title, beware: Wiki will promptly plunge you down a relentless rabbit hole of post-structural aesthetics that runs from Heidegger to Iragaray.  At the start, khôra (more often anglicized as chora), was defined by the ...

December 7, 2017–February 24, 2018
Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly takes the migration path of the Monarch butterfly, as a geographic range and a metaphor. The butterfly crosses the border of the United States at its junctions with Canada at the north and Mexico in the south along the entire length of both of these conceptual divides. Bypassing the hotter, desert regions of the country, Monarchs flock along its western and eastern coastal edges, but the ... (read more)
