View exhibition / Photo Instagram Art and Culture Center / HollywoodPRAN / Today, our accepted process of differentiation seems increasingly out of step with how “web searches” are organized — everywhere and everything has been turned into assemblages of diverse characteristics and qualities rather than discrete entities. New York critic and independent curator Saul Ostrow has organized the exhibition “Drawing on Likeness,” which includes work by Ivelisse Jiménez (Puerto Rico/USA), Gustavo Prado (Brazil/USA) and Lidija Slavkovic (Serbia/USA). The exhibition consists of work that has been previously fabricated as well as site-specific pieces. The artists will arrive prior to the opening of Drawing on Likeness to use the exhibition space as a site of production. A publication of the exhibition will be available online.
