Dear friends, we are excited to announce LOVE//WAR, our latest curatorial project taking place this week in Los Angeles in conjunction with the LA Art Book Fair.LOVE//WAR is an exploration of the conflicting relationships that drive our daily lives: Birth vs. Death, Good vs. Evil, Now vs. Never, and Young vs. Old—as understood by a multitude of creative perspectives. We examined the landscape of the artists and photographers we work with and realized their work ties into a distinct theme: because we are touched by uncertainty and contention, personal desire and public power are a constant and inevitable force behind everything that is good and equally bad.
As the late theologian William Ellery Channing put it: ‘Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.’”
