Opening Reception: Tuesday, October 29th, 6-9pm


"Where all is gold, and steel, and gems, and light" is a quote from Charles Baudelaire's poem, Sonnet XXVIII. Using this quote as a starting point, fine arts students created works inspired by the California City, CA landscape dealing with Baudelaire's ideas of duality and romanticism. The city itself is a failed attempt to become a new Los Angeles in the Mojave Desert, developed by sociology professor, Nat Mendelsohn. Consisting of unoccupied empty suburban lots and abandoned buildings, the uninhabited street plan that was once Mendelsohn's American dream has become an abstract geoglyph. As a group of artists, they were inspired by the urban and natural landscape as well as the phenomenological experience of travelling and exploring together. They approached the land with an eye for not just beauty, but a decadent, romantic quietness that is often overlooked and underappreciated.

The exhibition design is reminiscent of the viewing experience from the inside of the car. By changing the viewing level to correspond to one's eye level while sitting down, the viewer becomes more aware of the gallery space and is asked to spend more time contemplating the work. The space now serves as a container in which the works represents the fragments from the desert landscape.

Where all is gold, and steel, and gems, and light features new works by Ji Sun Kim, Christian Alvarez, Daniel Palacios, Ming Yan Gu, Kevin Colin, Grace Eunchong Lee, Amara Avila, and Tyler Syphers.
