The Conservation Center >> November at The Center: Bugatti, Modernism, & a Nautical Watercolor


 

NOVEMBER AT THE CENTER


This month at The Center was dedicated to challenging and historically intricate projects. We treated a plant stand by Bugatti (yes, related to that Bugatti) in an incredible process taking up our entire Furniture department, learned more about Modernism through Verve magazine, and treated a nautical watercolor.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at The Center!

Gallery Statement:   
Every year for over 50 years the L.A. Municipal Gallery has held its "Open Call" exhibit where any artist can show up with their art and an entry fee (to benefit gallery programs) and the piece is shown. The Los Angeles Center For Digital Art decided to launch an international experiment of the same nature where the artists upload images that are printed and hung by the gallery. The hundreds of works are displayed in a grid like installation (reminiscent of postcard art shows of the 1980's) where every work submitted is exhibited.
 
The usual (less than democratic) selection process where only the precious few are chosen is turned on its head in a curatorial anarchy where everyone gets to participate and the viewer is literally left to be the judge. The show represents a snapshot of a current moment in art history when digital imaging has reached the hands of the many, an age where "smart culture" belongs to an all pervasive social media. From Thailand to Texas, amateur to academic, beautiful to banal and beyond the monumental quantity and variety of "Snap to Grid" becomes an aesthetic experience where each individual piece adds to an agglomerative effect that has a life of its own.
