JAMAIS VU

Opening Reception

November 10, 2012
6 to 10 PM

On Saturday, November 10, Space 4 Art will host the opening reception for Jamais Vu an imaginative and skillfully crafted exhibition featuring the work of accomplished Los Angeles artists, Michelle Carla Handel and Michael Arata, and locally renowned artist, Ernest Silva. For this exhibit, the Space 4 Art curatorial committee selected sculpture, photos, and paintings that foster consideration of the darker side of our collective identities. Standing before these works, viewers are transfixed by a moment of┬áparamnesia or Jamais Vu – a disorder of memory characterized by the illusion that the familiar is being encountered for the first time.

The opening reception of this exhibit will also include open artist studios, refreshments, and a wild evening of onstage multimedia performances and experimental music curated by local visual/video artist Mnstrpsy. Performances to include Dancing Strangers, a post-punk, art-rock influenced duo from Tijuana and Innerds, a math-lounge duo who claim influence from Zandar.
