    Blind Courier Exhibition at the Brand Library & Art Center

    Curators Hilary Baker and Lauren Kasmer originally conceived of Blind Courier as an homage to Los Angeles. Expanding on this idea, they selected artists whose work casts a wider net beyond the boundaries of our city. In this exhibition nine artists bring to the Brand gallery their relationship to a place, their perspectives filtered through memory, imagination, and research. The artists represented offer a compelling mix of work by documenting, re-defining and re-envisioning dwellings, neighborhoods, and landmarks.

    Featuring Artists:

    Robert Aull
    Hilary Baker
    Lauren Kasmer
    Sharon Levy
    Diane Meyer

    Gallery Talk September 11, 1 PM

    As curious human beings, we cannot help but ponder the question of how we come to be here. So while there are many traditions and beliefs that can separate us as humans, I prefer to look at where we share a commonality in our biology.

    Re:Creation is a mixed media with video installation which focuses on a relationship to nature and refers to my own meditative practice while acknowledging a deep respect for physics as well as metaphysical tenets. - Lauren Kasmer
