Look at Me Hungry
curated by Mel Prest
April 13–May 25, 2019
Featuring Kim Bennett, Arthur Huang, Xi Nan, Joyce Nojima, Sandra Ono and James Sansing
The works in this exhibition evolve from an obsessiveness and immersion in the process of making — something like hunger — while evoking the tension between being fully realized abstract “things” and pieces disintegrating into their many components. Crossing boundaries between painting, sculpture and installation, the artists in the show lay bare their creative processes through works that embody time and the presence of their hand.
GLAS Animation Festival
Featuring Kim Laughton
March 21–24, 2019
Kim Laughton is a Shanghai-based digital artist specializing in new media. His work blurs the boundaries between tech demo, music video, experimental film and viral content — often exploiting cutting-edge imaging techniques to conjure feelings of nihilistic dystopia. Much of his work explores the notion of the uncanny valley, a computer animation concept describing the point at which an audience's empathy becomes revulsion while watching an animated character that is too realistic (but not realistic enough to feel like an actual human).
