On September 11th, we will be opening Landslide slips in time, place and identity: a grouping of solo and two-person exhibitions exploring how place can function as a porthole to the past and imagined future. The title references the 2011 landslide near White Point Nature Preserve, where site-specific works will be installed the weekend of the exhibition”s opening. Both a historic phenomenon and constant possibility in coastal San Pedro and Palos Verdes, Landslide also references the 1975 Fleetwood Mac song, in which Stevie Nicks sings “Can I sail through the changing ocean tides? / Can I handle the seasons of my life.” Together these references speak to the tension between the individual/collective and interior/exterior landscapes the artists in this exhibition -Michael Davis, Alexandra Pacheco Garcia, Vanessa Madrid and Suzanne Wright – address in their distinct styles.
