Capturing an array of artists to celebrate Durden and Ray's new home in the Bendix Building.
Opening: Saturday, June 30, 2018
Durden and Ray presents “Dragnet: 832", a multidisciplinary exhibition featuring the work of over 40 artists, kicking off the collective’s curatorial programming at their new gallery in Los Angeles’ Fashion District. The move to the Bendix Building places Durden and Ray in the company of numerous other artist-run galleries like JOAN, Chateau Shatto, Monte Vista Projects, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, PØST, and Track 16, as well as countless artist studios and ateliers, creating a hub of art and culture in the 92-year-old industrial building.
Durden and Ray organizers cast a wide net with “Dragnet: 832”, asking each member from the collective to invite one artist with whom they share a mutual admiration from diverse media and backgrounds. “Dragnet: 832” will run in tandem with PØST’s “Spell Check: A Kamikaze Event”, which is curated by Durden and Ray artist Dani Dodge. “Spell Check” will be on view Tuesday, July 10, from 7-9pm.
“Dragnet: 832” artists include: Kim Alexander, Richard Ankrom, Carlos Beltran Arechiga, Arezoo Bharthania, Carl Berg, Sandow Birk, Jorin Bossen, Rochelle Botello, Gul Cagin, Jennifer Celio, Sijia Chen, Joe Davidson, Dani Dodge, Tom Dunn, Roni Feldman, Yvette Gellis, Ed Gomez, Jenny Hager, Matt Hayward, Ben Jackel, Dion Johnson, Kysa Johnson, Brian Thomas Jones, Gegam Kacherian, Jeremy Kidd & Iva Gueorguieva, David Leapman, Albert Lopez, Jr., Constance Mallinson, Alanna Marcelletti, Abdul Mazid, Rebecca Niederlander, Sean Noyce, Sabine Pearlman, Ty Pownall, Max Presneill, Mei Xian Qui, Umar Rashid, Sam Scharf, Kristine Schomaker, David Spanbock, Curtis Stage, Ami Tallman, Tyler Vlahovich, Valerie Wilcox, Sergio Witrón, Steven Wolkoff, and Alison Woods
