November 7, 2020 through January 6, 2021

Featuring solo projects from:
YOSUKE UENO – Majestic Parade
THE PEREZ BROS – More Bounce
AMY SOL – Forest Dreams
LEON KEER – Luke Warm

Brand Library & Art Center and Thinkspace Projects are pleased to present Nexus III, showcasing a curated selection of international artists belonging to the New Contemporary Art Movement. This special exhibition will include mini solo shows from Yosuke Ueno, The Perez Bros, Amy Sol, Leon Keer, Reen Barrera and Uriginal (aka Uri Martinez).

Known for it’s renewed emphasis on figuration, representational genres, and narrative in the wake of art academe’s conceptual turn of the 90s, the New Contemporary Art Movement is shaped by a foundational countercultural edge, public activations, and its social impetus. Largely self-supported and community-driven, the movement has taken shape beyond gallery walls and outside of traditional institutional vetting. Now, as diverse and heterogeneous aesthetically as it is geographically and culturally expansive, the New Contemporary has come into its own as a globally energized art movement.

BRAND LIBRARY & ART CENTER: Brand Library & Art Center has been a cornerstone for the arts in Southern California since 1956. This unique public library focuses on visual arts and music and provides free services and programs for a diverse community, including a collection of over 110,000 items, subject specialist librarians, exhibitions, concerts, lectures, dance performances, films, and hands-on craft programs for children and adults. Always evolving, Brand Library utilizes new technologies and continues to develop innovative programs to serve an ever-widening public interested in the arts. Brand Library & Art Center is a branch of the City of Glendale Library, Arts & Culture Department.

My mural/ install for ‘NEXUS’ – curated by @thinkspace at the @brandlibrary || For this installation I recreated “Judith with the Head of Holofernes” which belonged to Mr. and Mrs. Brand and Was hanging in their living room on their estate which is now the Brand Library. Dr. Leavitt of the Pasadena Art Museum determined that the original painting hanging in the Library is a original hand oil painted copy made by one of the students of Cristofano Allori in the early 1600’s. The original is in the Pitti Palace in Florence. || I wanted to pay homage to not only Mr. & Mr. Brand, but also recreate one of my favorite subjects in art history. I wanted to portray Judith as the savior of the twelve tribes as it was done traditionally with her hand maiden, but also I wanted to put the representation of god represented by the fluorescent light and how modern society views religion. The cord running on the ground ( which people were tripping over all night as I intended ) was also a comment on society’s views of religion and art. I liked the idea of people not knowing if it’s art and if they could step on it or if it was just an extension cord. || this is A MURAL and is TEMPORARY. If you want to view it it’s only on exhibition for a short time and will get painted over. || Subjects: (Judith) @whosroxy (handmaiden) @ladyshark (Holofernes) Addison Fischer || • || #DrewMerritt #thinkspacegallery #thinkspacefamily #brandlibrary #brandlibraryandartcenter #glendale #art #newcontemporary #nexus #freeadmission #painting #mural #slayinggiants #slayingidols #slayingflies
