Thaumatrope, is a group show curated by Elonda Billera Norris, Janice Gomez and Fatima Hoang, founders of Summercamp's ProjectProject, an artist run space based in Los Angeles. For this third installment of First Street Gallery's Other Eyes Guest Curator Program, they have invited artists to make work in response to, or in collaboration with, First Street Gallery artists for an exhibition which offers a blend of style, process and inspiration that reflects the wide range of this eclectic group of artists. As the curators describe the impetus for this project:
"It is hard to go to the studio every day. Upon visiting First Street Gallery, we were impressed by the sheer drive and creative fire of the artists. With thaumatrope we hope to open a visual dialogue with artists from Los Angeles who share the same intense focus."
