May Contain Explicit Imagery: Nancy Baker Cahill, Kiki Seror, and John Weston Curated by Tucker Neel

July 27 – September 7, 2014

CB1 Gallery
207 W. 5th Street
Los Angeles, CA 90013

July 27 – September 7, 2014
Artists Reception: Sunday, July 27, 2014, 5 – 7 p.m.

CB1 Gallery presents May Contain Explicit Imagery, an exhibition exploring libidinal subjectivity, the way viewers project sexually charged interpretations onto abstractions. This exhibition unites three very different artists: John Weston, Kiki Seror, and Nancy Baker Cahill, whose disparate practices and methodologies create content activated through corporeal allusion. In front of each of these artists’ works the act of looking becomes self-reflectively conspicuous as one is made aware of an unavoidable impetus to see things that are simply not there. Like Rorschach tests (but much more engaging), each of these artists’ works allows viewers the opportunity to investigate the impulses behind images that resist and also demand meaning. As the title of this exhibition implies, the images contained in the works on display, congealed in the viewer’s consciousness, range from erotic to disturbing, but in the end purposefully resist “literal” interpretation.
