The Path of Darryl Curran: from the 1960s - the present (and the Origins of Conceptual Photography)
3015 Ocean Park Blvd
Jan 11, 4 PM - 6 PM — ends Feb 29, 2020
Darryl J. Curran is one of the major conceptualists of Southern California photography, and this exhibition recognizes his place at the forefront of the movement. He introduced the word conceptualism to our vocabulary, allowing an intellectual type of reasoning to be included in our art making. Borrowing from current trends and developments, he offers further, affected associations with cultural icons. Curran’s artwork demonstrates seeing and vision, capturing the ideas in the process -- in the midst of their expression. He combines images and found pictures, presents relationships and memories, and creates juxtapositions that encourage reflection and ask consequential questions. As a result, his pieces are not only visually pleasing, but thought provoking and timeless as well.
