THE RELATIVE SHARPNESS OF BOUNDARIES

Presented by Building Bridges Art Exchange as part of The Month of Photography LA, with Lucie Foundation, Curated by Marisa Caichiolo

Alessandro Cardinale | Cristina Gori | Hertha Miessner | Nuna Mangiante | Semra Sevin

Building Bridges Art Exchange is honored to welcome the above-mentioned 5 artists to the city of Los Angeles as part of our International Program and as part of the Month of Photography LA 2018. The Relative Sharpness of Boundaries exhibit will explore the contribution of these five artists from Europe and South America, to generate a dialog about identity, boundaries, and tolerance.

Tolerance is a function of the relative sharpness of moral boundaries. As tolerance ebbs and flows in our society today, these works show how the nature of tolerance and intolerance can become very clear through sharp contrasts. Sharpness can be found in the boundary between different tones or shapes; some of the artworks illustrate this contrast with a pattern of increasing spatial frequency. Many works are the result of the artists’ investigations of cosmopolitan cities as well as their own stories, individual perspectives, and cultures. The artworks on view range between photography, photographic installations, and videos.

A special thank you to our sponsors Lidia Rubinstein, MD & Judson Mock.
