Bringing together two of LA’s most revered incubators for emerging art, ‘AHORA’ will showcase the work of 44 contemporary artists from around the world, with a focus on Southern California. This special exhibition is being curated by Ozzie Juarez from Tlaloc Studios and Andrew Hosner from Thinkspace Projects. Each curator has chosen a vast array of creatives across various mediums, each with that special something that places them firmly in the current zeitgeist.
From the delicate ceramic work of Lizette Hernandez, Sachi Moskowitz and Maria Paz to the more figurative-based ceramic creations of Sydnie and Haylie Jimenez, Abi Castillo and Kristy Moreno and the sculptural creations of Aaron Estrada, Kiko Miyares, Maria Maea and Toco-Oco, this exhibition run the gamut! Including the photographic work of Felix Quintana and Valerie J. Bower alongside the contemporary portraiture of Brian ‘Dovie’ Golden and Manuel Zamudio, and the surrealist leanings of Young-Ji Cha and Ryo Laksamana (aka Ryol) the juxtaposition is clear and powerful. These perfectly compliment the street art-infused work of Sentrock, Mr. B Baby, Loser Angeles and Motelseven and the observational works of the Perez Bros, Hely Gonzales, Johnny Quintanilla and Alvaro Naddeo. ‘AHORA’ aims to be a snapshot of the now, highlighting the creatives who make work that speak to the major upheavals of our modern times.
Featuring new works from:

Brian ‘Dovie’ Golden
