Personal Space’s 1 year anniversary!!!

The opening includes live music by Agnes Martian, refreshments by Village, art cake by Lisa Nuñez-Hancock, and savory treats by Leah Tumerman.

Nocturnes presents Personal Space’s sixth exhibition and marks the gallery’s one year anniversary. The dreamy, languid, moody atmosphere imparted by the show’s title, conjures those hazy, magical hours between dusk and dawn, dark and light — a time so slippery it could perhaps only be captured by art. The eight artists gathered here — hailing from Atlanta, London, Los Angeles, New York, Mexico City, and the Bay Area — share interests in this liminal realm. Traversing textile, painting, and sculpture, their works rest somewhere between past, present, and future by offering spaces of refuge, pondering ecology, and considering acts of care, while honoring ancestral histories and beliefs. Bodies and bodies of water feature prominently, shape-shifting and embracing their interdependence with nature and the alchemical aspects of materiality. Seemingly eerie, witchy, and sometimes unsettling, the works give way to hope, transformation, and the start of something new — each their own note in this overarching score.
