HINDSIGHT IS 2020
Dispatches from the Edge of an Apocalypse
The Cerritos College Art Gallery is physically closed through Spring 2021, so our Fall 2020 exhibition has gone mobile. Inspired by art historical precedents - such as Marcel Duchamp’s Boîte-en-Valise, the Fluxus Fluxkits, and Wallace Berman’s Semina mail art project - our Fall show is presented as a limited-run ‘exhibition-in-a-box.’ In the spirit of mutual aid food banks, the gallery will be distributing these art boxes free-of-charge (while supplies last) to anyone that requests one.
The exhibition, Hindsight is 2020: Dispatches from the Edge of an Apocalypse, consists of miniaturized reproductions of works by fifteen contemporary artists exploring the events and anxieties of the last year, including: plague, virality, isolation, remote contact, face masks, parenting/childhood under lockdown, work/food/housing precarity, struggles in the service industry, plight of frontline/essential workers, disinformation campaigns, conspiracy theories, the constitutional crisis, the rise/return of fascism/anti-semitism, armed militias, police/state violence, protesting bodies, structural racism, xenophobia, the climate crisis, wildfires, etc.
The participating artists are Carmen Argote, Badly Licked Bear, christy roberts berkowitz, Michael Hanson, stephanie mei huang, Michele Jaquis, Jacqueline Bell Johnson, Elana Mann, Narsiso Martinez, Thinh Nguyen, Dominic Quagliozzi, Conrad Ruiz, Allison Stewart, Chester Vincent Toye, and Gordon Winiemko.
(The art gallery is closed during all national holidays, spring and winter recess, the summer semester, and during installations)
