"Unfinished Paintings" at L.A.C.E. Hollywood, California

Unfinished Paintings is a provocative curatorial project organized by Los Angeles artists Kristin Calabrese and Joshua Aster. The headlining exhibition for our 2011 summer season, Unfinished Paintings is an exhibition of 38 medium sized paintings by 38 artists, hung alphabetically by the artist’s first name.  This show is meant to dissect and turn contemporary painting inside-out. Works-in-progress will be put on view and offered as a point of entry into each painter’s respective creative world.
Artists and audience members alike will stand in front of the works, wondering why the artist decided it was unfinished, and what would make it finished? The organizing principal of this show is meant to provoke a healthy ambivalence and seed the desire for dialog and feedback. These are critical junctures in the art making experience. Calabrese and Aster now invite the public to engage in this part of the painter’s practice too.
Unfinished Paintings features work by Lisa Adams, Josh…
