Opening: Jamais Vu @ Space 4 Art, San DiegoJuxtapoz // Friday, 09 Nov 2012
Opening Saturday evening , November 10, at Space 4 Art is a three-person show titled Jamais Vu, featuring one of our favorite San Diego-based painters Ernest Silva as well as Los Angeles based artists Michelle Carla Handel and Michael Arata. If you are not already familiar, Space 4 Art is an emerging art venue in San Diego that functions as a collective of studios as well as an exhibition space. This Saturday evening will be a great opportunity to explore what Space 4 Art offers, or if you are already familiar, hang out, enjoy some live music, check out the exhibition, and have a good time.
"For this exhibit, the Space 4 Art curatorial committee selected sculpture, photos, and paintings that foster consideration of the darker side of our collective identities. Standing before these works, viewers are transfixed by a moment of paramnesia or Jamais Vu – a disorder of memory characterized by the illusion that the familiar is being encountered for the first time.
The opening reception of this exhibit will also include open artist studios, refreshments, and a wild evening of onstage multimedia performances and experimental music curated by local visual/video artist Mnstrpsy. Performances to include Dancing Strangers, a post-punk, art-rock influenced duo from Tijuana and Innerds, a math-lounge duo who claim influence from Zandar."
