Curated by Andrew McNeely

Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions Los Angeles, California, USA 06/29/2019 – 09/01/2019

A NonHuman Horizon explores art that situates California’s ecology in meditations of personal and collective social marginalization. By bringing into dialogue work by Andrea Chung, Eddie Rodolfo Aparicio, Jenny Yurshansky, and The Harrison Studio, this exhibition aims to draw into focus larger questions about the entanglement of the natural world and beliefs in human dignity.

Somehow both artist and work become simplified of their emotions and reality. This expectation of erasure is not surprising, it’s the conscious affect of the Western institution built

According to philosopher Michel Onfray, these new times are of acosmic civilization: the times of those living in cities under a logic of productivism, distanced from the cosmic wisdom of our ancestors; in some sense, those of us who are victims of specialization and efficiency.
