September 11 – October 23, 2016
Opening reception: September 11 from 1pm -5pm
Angels Gate Cultural Center is pleased to present Landslide: slips in time, place and identity; a grouping of solo and two-person exhibitions exploring how place can function as a porthole to the past and imagined future. The title references the 2011 landslide near White Point Nature preserve, where site-specific works will be installed the weekend of the exhibition’s opening. Both a historic phenomenon and constant possibility in coastal San Pedro and Palos Verdes, Landslide also references the 1975 Fleetwood Mac song, in which Stevie Nicks sings “Can I sail through the changing ocean tides? / Can I handle the seasons of my life?” Together these references speak to the tension between the individual/collective and interior/exterior landscapes the artists in this exhibition – Michael Davis, Alexandra Pacheco Garcia, Vanessa Madrid and Suzanne Wright – address in their distinct styles.
