Two Exhibits Opening in August at Grand Central
July 23, 2013
Two new exhibits will open Aug. 3 during Grand Central Art Center's First Saturday festivities. Opening receptions for both shows will be held from 7-10 p.m.
"The Time Machine," featuring the works of Beatriz Cortez, opens Aug. 3 and continues through Oct. 13 in the Project Room Gallery. The exhibition is described as an installation "that explores the dual realities of a first world metropolis, Los Angeles, and of urban space in a developing region of the world, in this case, San Salvador. These spaces coexist in the same hemisphere, separated by over 2,300 miles. However, they have strong connections to one another through labor and culture. Los Angeles is home to the largest Salvadoran population outside of the capital city of San Salvador."
Also on show Aug. 3 through Oct. 13 will be "Eamonn Fox: Solo Residency Exhibition for the Purposes of Furthering my Career" in the Education Gallery. The solo residency exhibition is described as a "real-time adventure in art making .... as a fluid series of related events, as opposed to an exercise in the arrangement of static objects. Featuring sculpture, photography, printmaking, painting, and performance in a bizarre and unpredictable rotation - the artist hopes to engage audiences on a personal level, one individual at a time." The artist plans to be in "residence" at the gallery during exhibition hours to collaborate with patrons or field questions.
Continuing through Sept. 22, will be Adriana Salazar's exhibit "Nothing Else Left" in the Grand Central Art Gallery.
