Crystallomancy at Control Room


OPENING Friday, January 20 7-10pm

Open hours Saturday and Sunday evenings 6 - 9pm, through January 29

Crystallomancy brings a group of artists from the dynamic and emerging art scene of Oslo, Norway to Los Angeles. Curated by Tommy Høvik and Zac Tomaszewski, the show brings together disparate practices across a wide range of media united by a bedrock engagement with ideas of perception and expanded reality - whether by referencing sci-fi tropes or the paranormal, or by trying to craft perceptual experiences that are surprising to apprehend, for their novelty, confounding nature, or overwhelming aspect.

Featuring work by:
Javier Barrios
Thomas Falstad
Christer Glein
Tommy Høvik
Are Mokkelbost
Tara Rolfsen & Oda Broch
Hans Christian Skovholt
That Purple Stuff
Zac Tomaszewski

Supported by the Office of Contemporary Art Norway
