Solace / Sublime
Opening Reception July 8th from 3-5pm
Solace / Sublime is a group exhibition featuring the work of artists who look to phenomena of the natural world as a primary source of inspiration. The exhibition, curated by Molly Enholm Velazco, brings together the work of Contemporary Southern Californian artists Samantha Fields, Megan Frances, Yvette Gellis, Virginia Katz, R. Nelson Parrish and Molly Enholm Velazco, seeks to explore a contrasting notion through the very elements often associated with the sublime experience. Through exploring these forces of nature, these artists embrace the dichotomies of the natural world: the minute and overwhelming, the eternal and the ephemeral, the solace and the sublime.
The exhibition will be on view from July 8th – September 9th, 2023.
Part 2 A Shadow Out of the Noise
A hyper-visceral experience is created by Beck+Col’s avant-garde use of opera, heavy metal, and fantastical wearable sculptures in their otherworldly performances. Creating overwhelming sensations that employ both the visual and auditory in decidedly non-traditional contexts, Beck+Col unleash the inner-self to arrive at raw and unrestrained human experience. For this performance of Part Two! a shadow out of the noise, Beck+Col play on the gothic concept of the double, exploring the horror that arises from the appearance of one’s exact duplicate. A followup to part one in which a single being is split into two mirrored images by a dark outside force, Part Two! follows them on a chaotic path desperately trying to reunite in the underworld.
The exhibition will be on view from July 8th – September 9th, 2023. The performance by Beck+Col will include performers Nadia Maryam and Tetiana Skylarova and feature choreography by Kayla Aguila and Tetiana Skylarova.
The gallery is open to the public Thursday – Saturday from 10am to 4pm. To learn more, please visit angelsgateart.org.
