About the Exhibitions

Artworks featured in Revision exist as paintings, photographs, sculptures, site-specific installations, and hybrid forms that propose new uses for domestic objects, symbols of nostalgia, historical artifacts, and tools of perception. Presented in the center’s Main Gallery and Gallery 2, works on view propose a reconsideration of “ordinariness” by reassembling found discarded personal items, playfully juxtaposing industrial and commonplace materials, and experimenting with visual language and meaning-making.

Showing in the center’s Gallery 1, Into the Garden couples works on fabric by Dani Dodge and sculptural works by Carolyn Mason in an environment that invites viewers to indulge in the act of looking and imagining. The exhibition features Mason's vivid sculptures comprised of expanding foam, wood, various metals, and felt. Similarly evocative of a sense of wonder and discovery, Dodge’s fabric and ink installation reflects affirmative moments the artist has spent in the Southern California desert.
