Thickening the Plot
September 12 - October 24, 2010

Opening Reception: Sunday, September 12, 2-4pm

Thickening the Plot is a group exhibition of Los Angeles based artists that focuses on gardens (intentional and accidental) and how artists work with the idea of a cultivated (or uncultivated) plot of land. This is done through the use of images, objects, installations and land works. The use of a title like Thickening the Plot which is more commonly used to describe written plot lines and not plots of land alludes to the way in which the artists have been encouraged to interpret the curatorial premise to their own ends. It also echoes the re-scripting of space at Angels Gate from a military installation to artist studios interspersed in the hillside above San Pedro.

Participating artists include:

Lisa Adams, Ruth Ann Anderson, Holly Boruck, Cusien Chang, Jill D'Agnenica, Libby Gerber, Stanton Hunter, Noel Korten, Margaret Lazzari, Erika Lizée, Barry Markowitz, Marina Moevs, Jim Morphesis, Jessica Newman-Skrentny, Carolie Parker, Cielo Pessione, Karen Reitzel, Roxene Rockwell and Sharon Suhovy

Thickening the Plot is curated by John O'Brien. In 2006 the Angels Gate Cultural Center commissioned renown labor photographer and long-time AGCC Studio Artist to engage in an ongoing project to document artists working and exhibiting in the Harbor Area. This series is executed in large format, Polaroid Type 55 Black and White Film and captures artists as the working people that they are. This exhibition will be the first time that the series has been exhibited to the public, 150 images from this ongoing body of work will be on display.
