ex*pose is a new contemporary art program curated by Grace Kook-Anderson. Kook-Anderson is the curator of exhibitions at Laguna Art Museum and specializes in contemporary art. ex*pose will feature rotating exhibitions focusing on one emerging artist or mid-career artist at a time. The program aims to present a diverse range of artists working in all mediums and rooted in a conceptual foundation, and will encourage participating artists to take the opportunity to create new work.
Peter Bo Rappmund (b. 1979) works in film, video, photography, and sound. His process records the natural changes in the landscape, covering much geographical ground-from the flow of water from the Sierra Mountains to the Pacific Ocean in Psychohydrography (2010), to the erratic border between the United States and Mexico in Tectonics (2012). Bo Rappmund creates sporadic rhythms and time-lapse sequences, producing a visually uncanny sensation from even the most banal landscapes.
