Oculus Clamantis in Deserto: Splendor and Disaster in the California Outback
Curated by Peter Frank this special presentation samples the work of several artists, both local and Los Angeles based who have embraced the desert as a spiritual and /or social as well as physical site. They view the desert not as a wasteland, but as a terrain as fragile and poignant as it is harsh and alien - an ecosystem stabilized by it's inherent contradictions and at the same time threatened by new ones.
Participating artists include Bill Leigh Brewer, Alexander de Cadenet, Carol Es, Doron Gazit, David Green, Mark Indig, Deborah Martin, Osceola, Stephanie Schneider and Susan Schulten.
