This exhibition juried by John Seed, Aleah Chapin, and Timothy Robert Smith explores representational art that has been reshaped and “disrupted”—including by abstraction, web-based imagery, and socio-political concerns—in response to contemporary life and its challenges.
Faced with an overflow of images, today’s artists are challenged to find the combination of subjects and individual hybrid styles that best express what it feels to be alive now. Responding to life’s disruptions engages their artistic imagination and the resulting works energize the flux of contemporary representational art.
This exhibition is inspired by John Seed’s book of the same name as well as his earlier book Disrupted Realism: Paintings for a Distracted World. It also celebrates OMA’s mission to share the art and stories of Southern California artists. Jurors and featured artists Aleah Chapin and Timothy Robert Smith are among the artists in the book More Disruption: Representational Art in Flux. Their work will be presented along with work by 48 Southern California-based artists selected from an open call.
Made possible with support from the Negri Foundation and Lisa Bebi of the Artist Mentor Project.
