Downtown Los Angeles' Corey Helford Gallery (CHG) is proud to announce their next major group show I Don’t Wanna Be, I Am ─ an international touring group exhibition exploring the concept of identity by bringing together a selection of artworks from a roster of artists including world-renowned Spanish painter and sculptor Okuda San Miguel, Argentinian artists Elian Chali and Franco Fasoli, as well as Spanish artists Martí Sawe, Misterpiro, Nano4814, Sabek, Sixe Paredes, and Spok Brillor. Curated by and in partnership with Ink and Movement (IAM), the show opens Saturday, May 14th from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm in the Main Gallery.
I Don’t Wanna Be, I Am is a collective and itinerant exhibition that brings together the work of different artists under one roof. Creators who, despite their distinctive backgrounds and uniquely individual work, share an encompassing creative vision. The exhibition explores the concept of identity within the context of the international art world and is born from the necessity to approach new codes, new spaces, and new interaction methods inside the universe of contemporary creation without hesitation. The result is an exhibition that is open to multiple interpretations and for all audiences, offering the opportunity to contemplate individual and collective creative identities. The show also has a social objective: a percentage of the sales obtained in this exhibition will be used to fund the activities of Coloring the World Foundation, whose mission is to promote a diverse and inclusive society through art and color. I Don’t Wanna Be, I Am debuted in Hamburg, Germany (Sept. ‘21), followed by Miami, Florida (Dec. ’21) and Lisbon, Portugal (Mar. ’22). After exhibiting at CHG, the tour heads to Dubai, UAE this October.
For over ten years, Madrid, Spain-based art project Ink and Movement has been promoting a variety of artists and developing cultural initiatives with the main objective being disseminate contemporary art around the world, positioning it closer to the public.
