IT WON'T FIT: Gutbox takes over Los Angeles
June 3 – June 25, 2011
Opening Reception: June 3 from 6:00p- 10:00p
Hibbleton Gallery and Magoski Arts Colony, Fullerton, California
Hibbleton Gallery and the Magoski Arts Colony will present ‘It Won’t Fit’, an exhibition of 2-D works in conjunction with a 3-D installation, that introduces New York based Gutbox Collective to the West Coast. This group’s mission is to create running narrative threads through collective participation. The members of Gutbox weave disjointed stories that don’t suffer the absolution of a beginning or an end. By incorporating panels that vary slightly in size and are under the influence of at least three members before completion, the group allows a film reel like format to take shape without giving way to a truly linear sequence. The result is a vivid display of painterly cooperation that meets naked trust and invention.
Gutbox debuted in New York City in the fall of 2010 at The Y Gallery. The incarnation that will take place at Hibbleton is a phase of Gutbox’s ongoing pursuit of constructivism within it’s own ranks and reaching outward to it’s audience from one location to the next, creating an ongoing narrative through it’s work that oscillates with those who participate.
Gutbox Members: Nick Dyball, John J. Hagan, Heather Hart, Jazz-minh Moore, Seth Mulvey, Ray Sell, Caroline Thaw, Ulrike Theusner, and Thomas Witte.
Visiting Artists: Eun Kang Koh, Kiel Johnson, Klai Brown, Patrick Logan, Kambui Olujimi, John Schupf, Jeff Sims, Jaret Vadera, Lucia Znamirowski and more.
Hibbleton Gallery Hours: Friday from 1pm-5pm, Saturday: 1pm-5pm, Sunday: 1pm-5pm and by appointment.
