2010-05-06-23.54.40

“The bumper sticker is one of the more curiously American bibelots of self-expression—a market of semaphores perhaps once meaningful, but eventually re-re-re-appropriated into semantic oblivion. Brendan Donnelly’s windshield assemblages cheerily revive and revile the medium through a series of compromised “portraits” that pair store-bought bumper stickers alongside custom decals designed by the artist himself.” — Press Release Artist Reception at Paul Loya tonight 6-9pm in Culver City!

6) For Export Only at Shulamit Gallery* Opens Sept 6th!

SG-Kamran-Web

Four person Iranian group show featuring a vibrant assortment of media including photography, sculpture, bronze, fabric, wallpaper and video installation.

7) Eske Kath @ Charlie James Gallery
