January 20 - March 10, 2018
The artists in SMOKE AND MIRRORS investigate the nature of reality; how objects, memories, ideas come into being, how they persist and how they cease to exist. The works want to make ghosts appear in the flesh and, at the same time reveal their illusionary nature. These artists are magicians
of their trade, oblique translators of both physical and virtual environments, recreating stages and props, histories and identities. By exploring the space between known and unverifiable realities, they shed light on the infinite vagueness of the anthropocentric universe.
The exhibition encompasses video, sculpture, installation and performance and presents artists from Argentina, Finland, France, Italy, Germany and the United States.
Manual History Machines presents Solar Flare; an exhibition featuring artists, Sofía Córdova, Daniel Gibson, Elizabeth Folk, Paul Pescador, Heather Rasmussen, and Shanna Waddell in Gallery Two and The Dark Room of the Torrance Art Museum. The artists in this exhibition each respond to their environment, and their life through a unique lens of recollection and mediation.
