This is The Practice of Disguise – Artists in Conversation with artists Ling-lin Ku, Ara Oshagan, and Cynthia Madansky!
Related to Ling-lin Ku’s exhibition The Practice of Disguise, this artist conversation explores the seemingly binary yet in fact blurry relationship of seeing and not seeing, revealing and concealing through creative approaches, personal experiences, and social-political lenses.
The exhibition The Practice of Disguise features new work by US-based, Taiwan-born artist Ling-lin Ku, on view in the Atrium Gallery at 1639 18th Street, Santa Monica (Blue Building) from November 15 – December 17, 2021.
This exhibition features Ling-lin’s new work created during the residency at 18th Street Arts Center, including a multi-channel video and sculptural installation that reflects on the revealing/hidden moments in the intersection of the virtual and tangible world, familiarity and the uncanny, otherness and selfness. In the current age of information, extreme self-exposure, and the constant mediation of fact, Ku explores the ways in which disguise has figured in contemporary art, and our relationship to representation in our modern era.
This exhibition is generously supported by Taiwan Academy in Los Angeles and the Ministry of Culture of Taiwan.
