East Looking West: A Group Show curated by Jonathan LeVine

Jonathan LeVine Projects

Saturday September 16th, 7-10pm
Gallery hours Weds 3-7p, Sat 11-4p or by appt. thru October 7th

Jonathan LeVine Projects and Heron Arts are pleased to present East Looking West, an exhibition of artists currently based on the West Coast, curated by Jonathan LeVine. East Looking West opens on September 16, 2017 with a reception from 7:00-10:00 PM and runs through October 7, 2017. There will also be an exclusive after party with further details to be released soon.

Jonathan LeVine is known for introducing the West Coast lowbrow aesthetic to the East Coast. With a particular style, vision, and palette influenced by comic books, B-movies, advertising, and car culture, the lowbrow aesthetic is both a cultural reality and a romantic encapsulation of how The West is seen from afar. It represents eternal sunshine, a way of life, the possibility of escape, and a fresh start.

A lot has changed since then, global influence has blurred regional distinctions and the West Coast aesthetic has been re-appropriated throughout the world. Interconnectedness, the Internet, and increased mobility has intensified a swirling of cultures. East Looking West is a stylistic melting pot showcasing West Coast natives and transplants. Revisiting our roots, we focus the lens on the West Coast and take a look at what is happening now.
