Emily Hoerdemann: One Word Poems & Other Interesting Colors

1820 Industrial St, Los Angeles, CA 90021
Jun 22, 5 PM - 8 PM — ends Jul 20, 2019
Garis & Hahn is pleased to present One Word Poems & Other Interesting Colors, marking Los-Angeles based artist Emily Hoerdemann’s debut solo show with the gallery. The exhibition will open on June 22 and remain on view through July 20, 2019. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, June 22, from 5 to 8pm. Hoerdemann’s latest series investigates contemporary femininity and what it means to be a female in our current moment. Heavily influenced by interrogations and appropriations of language, art masters, and ideas of objectification and the feminine, the artist repurposes materials, textures and techniques of creation traditionally associated with femininity to create analog cut-and-paste collages and small embroidered works. Many of the pieces incorporate appropriated images from auction catalogs and magazines, recontextualizing and renewing artworks by recognized artists. Free and open to the public.
