Above: Promotional artwork for "Facing West/Looking East" exhibit at Oceanside Museum of Art. This artwork was done by Bari Kumar titled "Left Right and Center".
Acknowledging the location of Oceanside Museum of Art on the literal edge of the Pacific Rim, "Facing West / Looking East" presents artists who reach across the Pacific to East Asia, Southeast Asia and South Asia for their content and commentary.
The 20 featured artists in this exhibition share a common interest in borrowing, recycling and sampling from the cultural cornucopia of today’s flat world where historical and geographical divisions are becoming increasingly irrelevant.
"Facing West / Looking East" reflects both California’s immigrant history and her embrace of the cultures of Asia. California’s spiritual practices, cuisine, architecture, landscaping, literature, film and music have all been significantly enriched by the diverse cultures of Asia. Like the state itself, the exhibition Facing West / Looking East does not have a dominant narrative. In the work of each individual artist one can find a reflection of aspects of the diverse experience that is contemporary California.
The exhibit starts August 11th and runs through January 13th.
