Rivera Gallery in West Hollywood is opening an exciting group exhibition this Saturday, October 15. Entitled anthro(physis), it features a dynamic fusion of sculpture, photography, film, paintings and works on paper by nine artists from around the world – Néle Azevedo, Vaughn Bell, Robert Cannon, Aharon Gluska, Claire Morgan, Robert Standish, Jason deClaires Taylor, Levi van Veluw and Yuriko Yamaguchi (pictured above). Talent from Brazil, Israel, Japan, the Netherlands, Northern Ireland, the UK and the US are all represented here.
The works featured in the show, which was curated by gallery director Maryam Parsi, enlarges on the ever-evolving relationship between human beings and their habitat. From installations that offer poetic depictions of man’s transience and vulnerability to works that forebode the downward spiral of the natural landscape, anthro(physis) subtly fosters in the minds of viewers a more conscientious understanding of the ramifications of society’s connection to the physical foundations upon which it was built.
