Expansion Joint is an investigation on space by Los Angeles artists whose works are influenced by the particular nature of space both vertically and horizontally in Southern California. LA as a city is unique in that it has both vast open spaces such as deserts and
compressed vibrant spaces like its downtown areas. Taking inspiration from the architectural element known as an expansion joint, this exhibition includes works that expand out into the gallery space as well as works that compress space within the picture plane.
Expansion Joint features artworks that both expand and compress, creating spatial interactions throughout the gallery. These expansions also create surreal and challenging environments for the viewer to navigate.
