“Imitation of Life,” Kinkead Contemporary, Culver City, CA. January 12- February 9.
“Imitation of Life” presents the work inspired and influenced by cinema. More specifically, their work deals with cinema of the past, which examines both the history of film and a context within which to observe the present. The title of the exhibition is taken from the famous novel written by Fannie Hurst, which was itself subsequently adapted to film in both 1934 and 1959. The phrase suggests an enigma (if not a paradox) – what and where is reality, or life? Artists include Dawn Clements, Angela Dufresne, Susan Silton and Mark Stockton. As soon as the gallery gets images on their website, I’ll add a link.
