Torrance Art Museum invites you to attend the Opening Reception for SOLAR FLARE, curated by Manual History Machines. Solar Flare features Sofía Córdova, Daniel Gibson, Elizabeth Folk, Paul Pescador, Heather Rasmussen, and Shanna Waddell. Occupying Gallery Two and the Dark Room of TAM, the artists selected for this exhibition each respond to their environment and life through a unique lens of recollection and mediation. They reconstruct experiences that reflect the personal, the psychological and the subjective. These practices begin with an examination of the self; whether it be the physical body, personal memory, or a significant place. Through distinct processes, these reflections become reconstructed and removed from the artist to address larger issues that are more environmental, global, political, or existential. Solar Flare serves to honor each of the artists and reinforces the crucial role of the subjective experience as a central core—which everything orbits.
Solar Flare will be on view from January 20th – March 10th, 2018 at the Torrance Art
Museum. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, January 20th from 6pm – 9 pm.
