Sibling Rivalries at the Torrance Art Museum in CA
January 16 – March 12, 2016
The Torrance Art Museum is pleased to present Sibling Rivalries, a group exhibition of work by artists based in New York City and Los Angeles. The exhibition comprises the work of fourteen New York artists paired with the work of fourteen Los Angeles artists.
The curators, Max Presneill and Ashley Garrett, decided to approach emerging and experimental art spaces in the New York area and asked them to nominate fourteen emerging New York artists. These fourteen New Yorkers then chose fourteen corresponding Los Angeles artists whose work spoke to, inspired and/or informed their own practices
Taking as its point of departure the historic competition between the East and West coasts, Sibling Rivalries transforms the traditional, ‘competitive’ understanding of the term. In this exhibition, ‘rivalry’ expands to encompass a dynamic interaction between art practices occurring in the two primary art and culture production centers of the United States. This exhibition sees the dynamic tension of East Coast, West Coast rivalry as a productive form capable of illuminating contrasting approaches to mutual concerns.
