The AVC Art Gallery is proud to host the Los Angeles Experimental Artists Group-II in a group exhibition of new work. The LAEA Group-II fosters mutual creativity, with members continually learning new methods and teaching these techniques and approaches to each other. This year the artists are uniting around the theme of DWELLINGS, incorporating many different media and techniques. Dwellings evokes conceptions of abodes, buildings, and homes, but, as the German philosopher Martin Heidegger explained, this theme also includes nature (the seasons, the cycles of life, the growth of living things, etc). The earth itself which we dwell upon as humans, the sky above us that we dwell under, and the spiritual realm of life that exists both within and outside all evoke this connective theme. The group is thus exploring this theme broadly to consider the various dwells that exist within the mind, heart, body, and dreams. The artists contemplate what dwells within us as well as the accumulated meanings of actual or imagined dwellings. The LAEA Group-II is made up of seasoned experimental artists who have worked in many media and exhibit widely.
