A group exhibition featuring works by Tetsumi Kudo, Lucas Samaras, Max Hooper Schneider and Paul Thek, curated by Jay Ezra Nayssan. This exhibition explores how these artists use the concept of the container as a tool for understanding and transforming the self.
The installation includes Kudo’s seminal cage sculptures, works on paper, and string works (the first time such a comprehensive selection has been shown in Los Angeles); Samaras’ iconic boxes, manipulated Polaroids and works on paper; Thek’s reliquaries, newspaper and acrylic on canvas paintings; and new multimedia works by Los Angeles based artist Max Hooper Schneider following his exhibition at the Hammer Museum in 2020.
