“The Stand In (or A Glass of Milk)” at The Museum of Public Fiction, Los Angeles

Curated By Alexandra Gaty & Lauren Mackler
The Stand In (or A Glass of Milk)

We are proposing an exhibition whose arrangement is unstable, whose parts accumulate and change over time. An exhibition, like a surrealist exercise; nonlinear, non-narrative, symbolic and referential. During three months, in three configurations, we will involve artists whose work mirror these ideas. Artists who flex material and content to stand-in for something else: a still life for a portrait, a film for a performance, a performance for a painting, a painting for a sculpture, a sculpture for a photograph. A presentation, in iterations, within which we play with the promise that the exhibition is a medium in itself. This new series includes artists from Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Paris, London, and Berlin, with works by: Trisha Baga, Scott Benzel, Gabriele Beveridge, Lucas Blalock, Nina Canell, Marieta Chirulescu, Isabelle Cornaro, Deanna Erdmann, Erik Frydenborg, Amy Granat, Nathan Hylden, Barbara Kasten,Erik Lindman, Shana Lutker, Alex Olson, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Rachelle Sawatsky, Sara VanDerBeek, Erika Vogt and Rosha Yaghmai. Populated by happenings, performances and screenings in collaboration with: Karen Adleman, Lindsay August Salazar, Scott Benzel, Brendan Fowler, Taisha Paggett and Flora Wiegmann.
