Guided tour of the "Seeing Eye Awareness" exhibition
You are kindly invited to attend the guided tour of the "Seeing Eye Awareness" exhibition with the curator, Jani Pirnat.
The exhibition Seeing Eye Awareness celebrates the artist as cultural clairvoyant, a shaman, as someone having a third eye opened unto the secrets of society, as someone we invite to reveal mystical truths. The artist's truest function has been to uncover mutations and anomalies. These are things that come from a place where language is insufficient or that crosses the border of consciousness, showing us culture’s bleeding edge.
There are multiple kinds of practices and artifacts in this exhibition that offer forms of revelation, fantasy and problem-solving that highlight today's slippery moment of belief. Some artists have cosmic or occult aspects to the work they make and others are ambassadors of mysticism and astral folklore, another group have gifted technological savvy and are outsourced by larger forces for research purposes with goals yet to be determined. The final category is of artists who I fantasize are in fact cultural operatives or moments of scripted avant-gardes.
The exhibition is curated by Aaron Moulton. Based in Los Angeles, Moulton is currently the Creative Director at Nicodim Gallery, Los Angeles.
