Sarah Danays, Golden Bough - A Featured MOPLA Event

2525 michigan avenue, Suite B7 Santa Monica, California 90404

Admission: Free.

Danays is a British sculptor and photographer. Her work aims to transcend time, scale, cultural and religious barriers. She meticulously photographs her sculptural work, which combine marble and alabaster hand-tooled pieces with sacred and secular antiquities to make a powerful merger of contemporary amulet and archived curiosity. In some cases the object exists in its entirety, in others it does not. In so doing she embraces the ideas of Baudrillardʼs Simulacra and Simulation, where physical objects and actual experience are exchanged for representation and voyeurism. With the real thing swapped for secondary visual stimulus or assumed experience, it is no longer of consequence whether the original exists, as our relationship is only with its copy. These ʻcopiesʼ are available as limited edition Type-C prints. Included in the exhibition are works by Cierra Lopez and Melissa Avilez. Exhibition Dates: March 29 - April 25 Opening reception, a featured exhibition of MOPLA: Saturday April 5 from 5-8pm For additional information please contact info@robertbermangallery.com

From the pastoral grains swaying gently in the breeze to dandelion stalks towering above the grass below, Weeds reveals the dynamic beauty hidden in plain sight. Weeds is printed on large 4x7 aluminum panels to synthesize the resilience of nature with the contemporary medium of photography. Nomadic Camera will be on view from April 5 to May 1 (6 pm - 9 pm) at Building Bridges in Bergamot Station with an opening and artist reception on Saturday, April 5 at 6 pm.

Photography of The Spectacular - A Featured MOPLA Event

Bergamot Station 2525 Michigan Avenue Gallery 8A, Santa Monica, CA

Admission: Free.

For MOPLA, bG Gallery presents the second part of bG’s Art of the Spectacular Series, Photography of the Spectacular, an exhibit of visionary photographers capturing and creating spectacle in their work. The spectacle is now a major part of mainstream film and video games but has its roots in fine art; particularly romantic and surrealist compositions. Art has influenced scenes of the spectacular in contemporary film and video games and these new medias have, in turn, influenced scenes of spectacle in contemporary visual art works. The photographers in this exhibit represent the culmination of this cycle, calling upon past influence and internal psychology to create works of awe and inspiration through spectacle. Reception: April 12, 6-10pm Exhibit duration: April 9-18th

I grew up in Iran in the 1950’s . Technicolor Hollywood movies gave me the chance to escape into a world of beautiful happy people who drove big cars, sang songs and fell in love and then went on to live happily ever after. I wanted to be a part of that world. I was good at drawing and painting. I thought I would grow up to be like Gene Kelly in An American In Paris ; painting , singing , dancing and falling in love.
