Los Angeles Art Association is proud to present Edge of History, a special cultural exchange with Italian and Los Angeles artists.
The project launches in Los Angeles at LAAA's Gallery825 on February 9, 2019 and later moves to Napoli, Italy in May. Juried by: Cynthia Penna (ART1307).
In a period in history characterized by great upheavals, from climatic changes to great migrations, Edge of Historychallenges artists to stop and reflect on our existence and on the future of the world. With this exhibition we invite artists and the public to think about these matters, about their own origins, their traditions and about what will happen to these old traditions and our cultural heritage in the future. In short: what does the future have in store for us? Artists were chosen from different regions and cultures and asked them to enucleate an element that belongs to their tradition and culture, and to project it from the past to the present, and then into the future, asking them to reflect on how it has changed from the past until today, and how it may be expected to change in the future. The participating artists have been asked to make an effort to imagine, to invent, to anticipate the future, because art has a power of foresight that is different from that of science. Edge of Historyfeatures artists Mary Cinque, Linda Kunik, Geppy Pisanelli, Antonella Masetti, Maidy Morhous, Viviana Rasulo, Catherine Ruane, Richard Slechta and Stephanie Sydney.
