By thelaegotist / / SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS is pleased to present Class Acts, an exhibition featuring work by Albert Reyes, Andrea Joyce Heimer, Benjamin Murphy, Jen Ray, and Sean Morris. Class Acts features five artists whose graphic works depict raunchy, explicit, and confrontational subject matter. Each artist takes liberty to create characters within environments where the subjects and spaces engender a sense of sexual defiance, curiosity, trouble, or indifference. Reyes and Heimer explore reclusion and rebellion within the suburban landscape while Murphy, Ray, and Morris deconstruct societal ideals of acceptable female beauty. Collectively, these artists salute a philosophy that suggests both women and men can embrace their sexuality without worrying about societal norms. Each artist approaches his or her specific medium with humor, irony, and irreverence. By challenging popular conventions and depicting crude and obscene behavior, the art confronts the boundaries between obedience and subversion. SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS is a multifunctional gallery space promoting diverse forms of art while providing a forum for contemporary dialogue. It was established by Shepard Fairey and Blaize Blouin in 1995 and played an integral part in introducing skateboarding culture and design to the art world. Now located in the historic neighborhood of Echo Park, SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS continues to offer a platform for artistic exploration and innovation. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 12 to 6 pm. Opening Reception: Saturday, February 27 · 8 – 11 pm Exhibition Dates: February 27 – March 26, 2016 Please email [email protected] to attend the CLASS ACTS opening reception Saturday, February 27th 8pm.
