Flaming June VII (Flaming Creatures)

June 8 – August 5, 2017

Gavlak Los Angeles is pleased to present a group exhibition entitled Flaming June VII (Flaming Creatures). This is the seventh iteration of “Flaming June,” a series of exhibitions curated by Sarah Gavlak that began in 1997. The title of the show is attributed to English Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir Frederic Leighton's famous classist painting Flaming June (1895) which portrays a sleeping woman in a vibrant orange gown. 

 

Artists featured include Lisa Anne Auerbach, Judie Bamber, Amy Bessone, Andrew Brischler, Zoe Buckman, Willie Cole, Mike Davis, Lecia Dole-Recio, Judith Eisler, Alexandra Grant, Keith Haring, David Haxton, Nir Hod, Timothy Horn, Elisabeth Kley, Kelly Lamb, Bovey Lee, Michael Manning, Maynard Monrow, David Mramor, Yuval Pudik, Dean Sameshima, Tabboo!, Betty Tompkins, Marnie Weber, T.J. Wilcox, and Rob Wynne.

 

An opening reception will be held on Thursday, June 8, from 6:00 – 8:00pm at Gavlak Los Angeles (1034 North Highland Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90038).
