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.

Rubén Esparza combines the skills of a multi-media artist and the insight of a gifted curator to synergize intensely cross-referential artworks. Queer AIDS tropes, phallocentrism, and bodily fluids become markers of LGBTQ+ culture from the early ’90s to the contemporary Trumpian zeitgeist. GLoves (Blood Drive), a 1995 triptych, epitomizes many themes of Esparza’s oeuvre. The artist,
