MCASD La Jolla's summer exhibit, "Here Not There: San Diego Now," features work by contemporary artists living and working in San Diego County. The museum just announced the list of participating artists (see below). The show opens June 6th. Lots of interesting artists on this list - and some we at Culture Lust are excited to learn more about.

The museum solicited submissions from local artists in the Fall of 2009 and received over 230 submissions. MCASD Associate Curator Lucía Sanromán also conducted studio visits and tapped into networks of local artists to flesh out the list.

In the end, Sanromán selected 43 artists and collectives to participate. Here's the list (note that Ricardo Dominguez, the UCSD professor whose art projects have become the subject of recent controversy is on the list):

From the press release:

"'Here Not There' does not aim to reach definitive conclusions about the nature of artistic production in San Diego County, nor draw a single narrative illustrating notions of identity or regionalism. The main objective is to chart as straight a trajectory as possible: from the artist's studio to the exhibition space. From this investigation, the exhibition emerges as a site of multiple overlapping thematic lines, encircling around disparate communities with their own gravitational centers, each defining a "here" that nearly touches another."
