Curated by Elan Greenwald
July 26 - August 16, 2014
Opening Reception: July 26, 6-8pm
Ideal Territory brings together a group of works that obliquely consider territory itselfas domain, history, narrative, and site of comparison. Sliding between conceptual borders that distinguish these properties, the assembled gestures find themselves decisively within a territory of ideals. As if by accidentthough assuredly no accidentthe ground returns as a seeping substance into these works. Together they form a constellated image of that which is shared in common as precisely that which forms the foundation of separation.
Made possible by the generous support of Cirrus Gallery, Ideal Territory features new work by recent UC Irvine MFA graduates Jenn Berger, Sean Cassidy, Michael Moshe Dahan, Heather Delaney, Shaun Garren, Rochele Gomez, Elan Greenwald, Daniel Hawkins, and Isabel Theselius. A catalog will accompany the exhibition.
