Santa Monica: Museum: Of Art

Santa Monica Museum of Art

We are pleased to announce our four summer exhibitions: in the Museum's Main Gallery Robert Swain: The Form of Color, in Project Room 1 Andrew Cannon: Chemical Computer, in Project Room 2 Nonfictions: Jeremiah Day/Simone Forti/Fred Deweyand in the Bergamot Station Arts Center lot Park Studio: Tree House.
Robert Swain's monumental paintings are an all-encompassing visual and physical encounter with color. Grounded by forty-five years of research, The Form of Color explores 4,896 chromatic units and their effects on perception.
Andrew Cannon's paintings in SMMoA's Project Room 1 also play with perception--specifically the spectacle and illusion of commercial packaging--with metallic foils, industrial adhesives, and automotive paint.
Jeremiah Day, Simone Forti, and Fred Dewey have been collaborating since the 1990s--exploring the interaction of personal and public life. Their installation at SMMoA debuts three new video works, and is preceded by two extraordinary live performances.
The Park Studio: Tree House, built by local high school students in collaboration with architecture collective Knowhow Shop, is on view just outside SMMoA in the Bergamot Station parking lot. An exciting program series will activate the space throughout the summer.
We look forward to your Museum visit and hope that you'll share these innovative exhibitions with your audiences. Please let us know if we can provide you with any additional information or images. 

Warm regards,
