Jul 13, 4 PM - 6 PM — ends Aug 29, 2020
515 is pleased to host "Inadvertent Protagonists" a one person exhibit of works by HK Zamani, July 11 – August 22, 2020; viewing is by appointment only. A conversation with jill moniz will be posted online. The gallery is located in the Bendix Building.

Conflating three-dimensional and two-dimensional forms is a recurring theme in Zamani’s work of the last three decades, with sculpture representing the body and painting representing the immaterial. His new works, Inadvertent Protagonists focus on the idea of coexistence in their imageries: the paintings actively converse with their sculptural counterparts. As an Iranian-American artist he continues to explore his cultural duality by superimposing the values of both cultures in his work. The binary character structure of these new explorations is a preoccupation with dualities, within self or in contrast to others, and the goal of coexistence without violence

HK Zamani is a multidisciplinary artist and curator, and founder of PØST, an alternative exhibition space in Los Angeles (1995-2020), where more than five hundred exhibits have been hosted. His abstract paintings are terse and meditative, painterly and deliberately composed. These formal abstractions are inspired by earlier works in which the symbolic appearance of a dome or tent structure is recurring. Interested in the shifting nature of perception and optics, Zamani has drawn from a varied sensory spectrum ranging from the ascetic to the psychedelic. He has exhibited extensively, is a recipient of COLA and CCF Grants, and is in the collections of LA County Museum of Art and Berkley Museum of Art.
