Angels Gate Cultural Center is pleased to present Hold Up, a group exhibition spanning all five of our gallery spaces. Participating artists responded to a prompt: sustainability comes from the Latin sustinere (tenere: to hold, sup: up). The ensuing phrase "hold up" evokes conflicting images: a pillar and a blockage. To change personal and collective patterns to ensure that life on the planet can be sustained will create roadblocks, rerouting us to explore uncharted terrain. The artist responses come together to create a non-linear map. The exhibition traverses land and sea in reimagined vehicles wobbling across scrutinized infrastructure that necessarily transforms itself into perches for utopic possibilities to take flight.
The opening reception will be January 23, 2016 from 2 pm - 5 pm Angels Gate Cultural Center is open to the public seven days a week from 10 am to 5 pm and admission is always free. In addition to the opening, there will be a series of performances, workshops and panels through out the Winter/Spring seasons that correspond to the exhibition. Dates and descriptions TBD.
