Angela Dufresne: Angela Dufresne as William E Jones' Painting Bottom
January 23 - February 27
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 23, 12 - 6 pm

Dufresne's paintings are expressions of our lived experiences, "the stuff of the world, in dialogue with media, cultural production, and history as performance." In her first Los Angeles exhibition in nine years, Dufresne will present paintings from an ongoing collaborative series born out of her close friendship and confidence with William E. Jones. This exhibition is a portrait of their conversation, of the unabashedly intellectual and queer bonds between Dufresne and Jones.

Mariah Roberts: Repetition
January 23 - February 27
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 23, 12 - 6 pm

The artist's vibrant camera-less photo works-for which she is best known-are made from the basic elements of the traditional darkroom, yet defy the dominant paradigm of photography as a direct observation of life. Examining the process of image-making from its interior, Robertson's photographic practice offers a meaningful understanding of the medium, and its potential for experimentation and disruption. For Robertson, the concrete tools of photography are a system from which to work with, marking the passage of time and creating tension between chance and plan.
