George Lawson Gallery is pleased to present Aggregate Exposure, curated by Jennah Ward, and featuring a group of twelve artists from Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York City, and San Francisco who work with photography using a hybrid approach. The exhibition's emphasis is placed on looking at the processes through which the work is made, rather than what is represented in the photographic image.
An orange surface on a baking sheet with a simple white frame, or an orange accent on a small-scale canvas...? What is the deciding factor that differentiates painting and crafts as art forms? How do today's artists deal with the starting point of painting since this problem appeared to have been long resolved but is challenged once again by each generation? These are the kind of questions to which the Elementary Painting exhibition at the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen devotes itself: It confronts the classic colour field paintings with situations which initially determine the paintings by their borders.
