Opening Reception: Friday, February 11, 2000, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Southern Exposure gets its feet wet with Deep End, an exhibition featuring eight Los Angeles based artists and organized by Swap Meet Art Collective (S.M.A.C.). Deep End conjures contradictions, suggesting that what is on the outside is not necessarily what is on the inside. Using humor and irony the artists play with and provoke personal boundaries, both physical and psychological, simultaneously attracting and repelling, enticing the viewer “deeper” in. Are the artists just splashing and playing around or are they in danger of drowning? Does the viewer jump in or do they stand on the edge and get wet?
