Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present China Adams: White Flags and Silent Chimes, Adams’ second solo exhibition at the gallery. With White Flags and Silent Chimes, China Adams continues to investigate recycled materials by creating art works from the detritus that accumulates at her home, including the junk mail that arrives daily in her mailbox. Using such material, which is generally considered “garbage,” Adams transforms the inherent worthless character of the material, while not concealing its origin, into something renewed, re-contextualized and reformed.
Also, Nothing New: Amir Zaki Selects Vintage Photographs of Southern California, 1870-1950. This marks the first exhibition in the gallery’s new program, Artists Select, in which contemporary artists curate exhibitions by selecting works from local private collections.
