ECAA is proud to present the work of Kendell Carter, Raúl Cordero, Michelle Grabner,
Michael St. John, and Jeffrey Vallance at Art Los Angeles Contemporary 2018.The
gallery’s debut at the ninth annual edition of Art Los Angeles Contemporary provides
the opportunity to exhibit new and recent work of five artists who explore American
values and its spectrum of heroics and shortcomings, viewed through the lens of
contemporary politics and culture.
Kendell Carter’s sustained commitment to observing and exploring race, gender, history,
and consumer culture manifests in a studio practice that pushes beyond that of a
black artist making art about politics, and towards one that acknowledges the rapidly
integrating nature of today’s visual culture. His multidisciplinary practice has
been exhibited at the UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA; Monique Meloche, Chicago,
IL; The Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach, CA, and Savannah College of Art
and Design, Savannah, GA.
The paintings of Cuban born artist Raúl Cordero oscillate between forms of communication.
Words and images, cinema and video, documentary and narrative, and imaginary and
realistic forms distort the classical figure-ground perception, questioning how
visual language has given way to textual information in contemporary art. His work
is held in public collections including the Musée National D’Art Moderne Centre
Pompidou in Paris, France; Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), The Museum
of Contemporary Art (MOCA), and El Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, in Havana, Cuba,
Michelle Grabner works across mediums including drawing, painting, video and sculpture.
Her recent body of sculptural work is comprised of found blankets cast in bronze.
Though the drapery and patination recall Classical antiquities, the hand-crocheted
nature speaks to domestic labor, and confronts the traditional views which still
pervade the inclusion of “women’s work” in the fine art context. Her work is included
in the permanent collection of Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; Museum of Contemporary
Art, Chicago, IL; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington D.C. and the Victoria
and Albert Museum, London, UK, among others.
Off the back of his recent solo exhibition at ECAA, Portraits of Democracy,
Michael St. John’s identically scaled, small-format works depict aspects of our
current culture and society through images of people and objects. Through a strategic
selection of processes including appropriation, assemblage, painting, and collage,
St. John’s new paintings observe an underbelly of the American experience. Recent
solo exhibitions include Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York, NY, and Team Gallery, New
York, NY, and his work is included in numerous public collections such as The Rubell
Family Collection/Contemporary Arts Foundation, Miami, FL; Neuberger Berman, New
York, NY, and MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge MA.
Throughout Jeffrey Vallance’s works, unexpected images of the commercial, the personal,
and the political collide with his sincere exploration of idiosyncratic iconography.
Vallance, whose practice often includes the obsessive archiving of arcane objects,
finds a perfect subject in Bob Flanagan, an American performance artist known for
his work exploring the convergence of cystic fibrosis and sadomasochism. Recently
exhibited in “Every Breath You Take” a group exhibition at Jason Vass Gallery (Los
Angeles, CA); as Whitehot magazine described, “Vallance succeeds in bringing us
closer to Saint Bob, through objects that still gleam with menace and power.” Vallance
has exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles and The Andy
Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA among countless others, and his works are held in
such public collections as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Hammer Museum,
Los Angeles, and Moderna Museet, Sweden and The Vatican Museum, The Vatican, Rome.
