RACHEL HARRISON and JACQUELINE HUMPHRIES included in Transmissions: Selections from the Marciano Collection

Marciano Art Foundation, Los Angeles
Ongoing

Some of the artists on view deal directly with the history of electronic transmissions, other artists in the exhibition explore transmission through the lens of seeing and being seen. Many of these artists approach the idea of transmission through painting, deploying a wide variety of alternative strategies and unusual materials to disrupt the medium’s traditional applications.

Whether delving into the realm of abstraction or culling images from the world around us, each of these artists generates a kind of transmission, a signal that is projected out to the viewer in order to ask a wide array of questions. Like Velazquez’s Las Meninas, these are works that look back at us looking at them and, like Allora and Calzadilla’s parrot in The Great Silence, wonder why we’re looking for remote signs of life when so many forms have been around us all along, asking to begin a conversation.

Transmissions: Selections from the Marciano Collection is curated by
Hanneke Skerath and Douglas Fogle.
