Opening reception: Thursday, September 8, 6-8pm
Blum & Poe is pleased to announce that the inaugural show will be British artist Anya Gallaccio.
First exhibited in Vienna and London, Gallaccio's installation Stroke is a curious combination of emotions - scatologically hilarious one moment, melancholy the next. Working well within a minimalist tradition, Gallaccio's entropic urges go a step further than Richard Serra's wall pieces or Richard Long's mudworks. Feminist in material, natural in its decay, subversively Freudian, "Stroke" is an enigmatic and challenging work.
The opening reception will be Thursday, September 8 from 6-8pm. Blum & Poe is located at 2042 Broadway in Santa Monica. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11 AM to 6 PM.
