Third Annual Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP) Members’ Exhibition at the dnj Gallery in Bergamot Art Station

The exhibition will run from July 30 – August 27, 2016, with the opening night reception  held on Saturday, July 30, 6-8 pm 2016. The Los Angeles Center of Photography showcases our supporting Members’ work with an annual exhibition. The exhibition, normally programmed in July of each year, is open to Members’ only with the the opening reception at the dnj Gallery in Bergamot Station.

The juror for this exhibition is January Parkos Arnall, who is an interdisciplinary scholar and curator expert in photographic practice, theory and history, and grounded in modern and contemporary art movements in the United States. January is currently utilizing her comprehensive education in cultural studies and visual theory in her position within the curatorial department of the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles focusing on Public Engagement.

In discussing his photograph, Clausing states “This is one of a series of self-images that present anatomically ambiguous formations. Symmetry has always been a measure of beauty, yet here mirroring transforms normal body parts, such as a hand or a foot, into unexpected “scapes” and shapes, transporting the viewer to a world of fantasy. While evoking unexpected associations, these images are in the tradition of mutated body art and evoke both attraction and repulsion, as they challenge our notions concerning human appearance.”

dnj Gallery is located at Bergamot Station, 2525 Michigan Avenue, Suite J1, Santa Monica, CA 90404 & the admission and adjacent parking is free.
