Matthew Craven: FOLK::LORE

2754 South La Cienega Boulevard
Sep 16, 6 PM - 8 PM — ends Oct 07, 2023
From Prometheus and Athena to the Garden of Eden to the Big Bang, Matthew Craven’s solo show FOLK::LORE at Hashimoto Contemporary features new works on paper that explore the myriad creation stories explaining humanity’s role in the cosmos. By re-contextualizing cultural symbols that have endured through decorative motifs, the variegated and intricate compositions that make up the works in FOLK::LORE prod us to reconsider our relationship with mythology and, therefore, our position in the world.

The exhibition opens with a reception on Saturday, September 16th, 6 pm - 8 pm and is on view through October 7th. For more information about the show or exclusive content and images, please email
