The timely, topical and thought-provoking presentation examines the work of 36 contemporary artists—from established to emerging—who are expanding the ongoing dialogue about race and identity, while challenging the very definition of skin color. With works by notable artists such as Kara Walker, Nery Gabriel Lemus and Ken Gonzalez Day, the show promises to be a visual feast with its size and scale, mixed media artworks and powerful content designed to build a greater understanding of racial relations and breakdown negative stereotypes.

L.A. Artcore invites the public to California artist Bruce Barton’s solo exhibit in Artcore’s Little Tokyo, Downtown L.A. gallery space where the artist will exhibit over fifty digital photographic prints in a series that has been three years in the making.
Barton’s work imaginatively questions the relationship between nature and culture by digitally collaging appropriated domestic and wildlife imagery and composing his subjects into deadpan mise-en-scènes. Barton amplifies this artistic intent through stark juxtapositions of subject matter and attention to detail to produce lively and thought-provoking interactions between his subjects, whose very existence is predicated upon folly and chance. Barton’s exacting methodology and painterly technique reveals the way the collage medium has drastically evolved with the use of digital tools such as Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator to bring about a new consistency of contemporary image-making.
Conversation With the Artist Series at 4pm.
