5790projects is proud to present its first pop-up group exhibition for 2014, TRANSMISSION, featuring five LA-based artists largely focused on performance and video. In tandem with an artist talk, the exhibition will be on view for one night only at two separate venues; debuting at the Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock, then traveling to the Orange County Museum of Art.
The artists featured in TRANSMISSION use video as a way of navigating perceived, assumed, and projected identities. By assuming or presenting exaggerated modes of selfhood, each artist delves into the constructs that shape abstract and popular notions of individuality. From Deanna Erdmann's portrayal of the embattled self, to Tyler Matthew Oyer's vulnerable self, many of these videos create discomfort and tension in the mind of the viewer as our protagonists struggle to find a definitive persona. Conversely, Danial Nord's work addresses the fluidity of a manipulated personality, while Elana Mann investigates the mediation of our modern collective psyche. A common thread between each work, the communication and vernacular of a shifting culture – as captured in Emily Mast's piece – largely shapes how we orient ourselves within a greater social topography. These concepts, as well as how the medium of video uniquely contributes to them, will be expounded upon during each exhibition's artist talk.
5790projects focuses on providing a pop-up exhibition platform for emerging artists based in Los Angeles. The artists included in TRANSMISSION encompass a diverse miscellany of practice and exhibition history.
All of the artists live and work in Los Angeles.
