Elemental Exigency: An Environmental Arts Initiative
Small Green Door is pleased to present “Elemental Exigency” – an environmental arts initiative that explores the elemental repercussions of human habitation on Earth through photography, painting, sculpture, performance, poetry and immersive installation. As life on this planet faces increasing threat by climate change accelerated by human impact, this exhibition will showcase how a number artists in Los Angeles and beyond are responding to the elemental forces in their natural environment.
Elemental Exigency will feature work by artists Adrienne Adar, Gabrielle Greenberg, Dante Marshall, Alexis Myre, Orson Oblowitz, Rezm Orah, Gretchen Ryan, Tushar Routh, Alexandre Velasco and Eddy Vajarakitipongse. This exciting new group of artists uses the practice of art as a means to examine the intricate processes and patterns in nature. Their work reveals new potential for humanity’s complex relationship with the natural world. These artists represent a spectrum of artistic disciplines with diverse vantage points shaped by their landscape, terrain, culture and identity. In experiencing their work we come to understand personal accounts of survival and regeneration in the human habitable range.
This evening will also feature a solar powered concert. Drinks and food will be served! All are welcome, free and open to the public.
