In her practice as choreographer, dancer and performer, Jeong constantly renegotiates the relationship between the human body and the objects that surround it. She has built up a collection of plain everyday objects upon which she bestows a bizarre, disconcerting life through an intense and risky interaction with her own body to challenge notions of sexuality, technology and the female body.

I met Jonas when he was still a young man. I think he was 75 years old… I was intrigued with Jonas from the first moment I met him, maybe from the first thirtieth of a second or the first twenty-fourth of a second that I met him. That’s where my intrigue comes from.
—Douglas Gordon

Long before I met Douglas I met his films and they were exciting. I like them because they are so different from what I or anyone else is doing. His films open a totally new invisible window full of visual excitement. And I like Douglas himself, because he’s always 200% himself, and is always unpredictable, like his films.
—Jonas Mekas

Open: 1pm -7pm Tue-Sat

EO6 asks serious questions about artists contemporary practice and their place within art history’s foundations by dealing in the tropes of Photography, Abstract and Urban Expressionism, Surrealism, Modernist regard for material, with a Postmodern ease in mixing references.
The artists work to establish a distance between themselves and their work to create the void which allows them to reflect on and then push at the boundaries , the edges of their practises, and into this same space the viewer is invited to find their own perspective on the exhibited work.
Eight artists present to you an exciting range of work that inspires the conversation about the current and the exhibition is in media that ranges from Sculpture, Installation through Painting, Printmaking and Photography.

Artists:
Richard Brayshaw, Andrea Coltman, Charlie Dillon, Naya Eleftheriou,
Pamela Gerrie, Joanna Gilbert, Gail Olding, Maria Vesterinen

Night Gallery

2276 E 16th Street
Los Angeles, CA, 90021
+1 323 589 1135
Open: 12pm – 7pm Tue-Sat

 Hidden in a sketchy neighbourhood in east Los Angeles and far away from the busy commercial art neighbourhood of Culver City, Night Gallery opened its doors in the winter of 2010. Spearheaded by artist Davida Nemeroff, Night Gallery, as the name suggests, is only open at night, from 10pm to 2am. Part laboratory for emerging artists, part meeting point for the creative communities of the city, Night Gallery organises exhibitions and events in an unusual space that – with its black painted walls – resembles a 1920s boudoir more than a conventional white cube. Located in a city usually associated with beautiful sunny days and palm trees, Night Gallery feeds off the nocturnal forces that agitate the dark side of LA.

 Work by emerging artists from the UK and Italy.

Curated by Liane Lang & Becca Pelly-Fry

This new exhibition at the Griffin Gallery brings together art students and recent graduates from Italy and the UK. The Italian artists have each won a prize in 2012, awarded in one of three categories by the Italian AOP Academy, supported by Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Conté à Paris. The artists from the UK are students or recent graduates from the Royal Academy Schools in London, selected from their proposals. By bringing together artists from two different countries and contexts, the Griffin Gallery aims to foster dialogue and discussion, expand artists’ networks and provide exposure for a group of exceptionally talented emerging artists.
The themes and media from this small snapshot of current artistic practice are varied, but the conceptual and formal concerns converge on a preoccupation with material surfaces, with the structures and devices of presentation and an engagement with abstraction. The works are exquisitely produced and constructed, tone and texture is a selection device, which often overrules the origins or narrative dimension of an object or form. This accomplished and self- analytical approach results in works which are contained, engaged in a suggestive interior monologue.

Artists:
Rebecca Ackroyd, Marisa J Futernick, Ziggy Grudzinskas,
Oscar Isaias Contreras Rojas,
Isabella Nazzarri, Patrick Tabarelli
