SHRINE: EXPANSION TOWERS
A collaboration with Aaron Taylor Kuffner and Mia Dungeon
The Center Courtyard
Shrine is a multi-faceted artist who has been making work across disciplines for over 30 years. The richness of his practice comes from lovingly embracing the unknown, working with items discarded by humans all over the world, and the complete dedication to his immersive process. Shrine’s work can be seen in countless countries on nearly all 7 continents.
While tending to create larger than life installations in public spaces, these works are often made up of smaller sculptures, paintings, and found objects that come together, transforming themselves into something even greater than the sum of their parts. His installations range from large outdoor pieces at major festivals, humanitarian work in multiple countries as well as being no stranger to the gallery world, including solo project spaces at Art Basel Miami, the Craft and Folk Art Museum and La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, as well as the Yerba Buena Art Center in San Francisco.
AARON TAYLOR KUFFNER: THE GAMELATRON GANDABERUNDA
The Art Association Gallery
Kuffner is a conceptual artist whose dynamic work reaches far outside conventional forms of representation and is uniquely attached to the idea of providing conceptual tools that further the evolution of consciousness through experiences of beauty and the sublime. Gamelatrons draw on the thousand-year-old sonic tradition of Indonesia–Gamelan–and the emerging field of robotics to create magical, viscerally-powerful, site-specific performances, installations and stand-alone art works.
MIA DUNGEON: DESERT BLOOM
The Center Theater Gallery
A self-proclaimed Hermit Crab, Mia Dungeon lives and works out of her 1986 Toyota van. Navigating ever-changing landscapes, her work is a sponge to the constant influx of the vast visual stimuli innate to life on the road. The windshield of this 6’x8’ live/work space on wheels provides a viewing portal that frames her transient experiences that Mia translates into Surreal paintings. Her most recent series “Desert Bloom” was inspired by, and created in, Mia’s time spent in the Mojave Desert between Joshua Tree, Palm Springs, and the West Coastline of Southern California. This series is infused with desert flora and fauna from the Saguaro Cacti, Date Palms, Golden Poppies, Greater Roadrunners, California Quail, and nights in natural mineral pools under the desert stars.
