A group exhibition at No Gallery – 1115 S, La Brea Ave. LA Ca 90036. Opening reception: Jan. 18, 6-9 pm.
Von Ammon Co., No Gallery and Anonymous Gallery is happy to announce the 4th edition of the exhibition 100 Sculptures. 100 Sculptures is as advertised and features over one hundred small sculptures created by over one hundred international artists – the only given framework being that no sculpture have more than a 5 x 5 inch (12.7 x 12.7 cm) footprint.
This travelling, regenerative, and celebratory exhibition is a meshwork; an extremely populous show with the objective to create the most dynamic, non-hierarchical system that is possible within the limited confines of a gallery. The one hundred (+) objects on view have the ability to interact and decode one another freely. The exhibition acts like a circuit board, wherein each artwork behaves like an attractor in the network.
Through the use of media including casts, cloth, ceramic, found objects, paper, bronze, concrete, aluminium, and more, the pieces on view appear plush, metallic, functional, mobile, automated, geometric, sensual, rhythmic, or even biologically subversive. Meanwhile, the works conceptually range from spiritual and optimistic to dark, disarming, and uncanny. Each piece, despite its diminutive scale, maintains its own singularity and pathos as displayed unified amongst many other similarly sized objects. Shown here at its maximum degree of variety and difference, the works on view assemble mutual logics and codes.
Originally conceived by, and co-curated with Todd von Ammon, the exhibition was first presented at Anonymous Gallery in Mexico City (September 2018). The exhibition has since traveled to Paris, France (May 2019) and was most recently constructed anew in San Juan, Puerto Rico (November 2019). As the exhibition continues travelling new pieces are supplemented from those sold and new artists are invited to participate in each location. Anonymous and Von Ammon co. are happy to be partnering with Casey Gleghorn at No Gallery who is contributing to the organization and curation of the 4th presentation in Los Angeles, opening January 18th. 6-9pm.
The participating artists represent a majority of those with whom the curators have collaborated over the last decade.
