A fresh round of gallery exhibitions has opened at the Pacific Design Center's Blue Building, including a solo exhibition by current Palm Springs Museum artist-in-residence Cristopher Cichocki at See Line Gallery and SWERVE, a sculptural installation by Caroline Cox at another year in l.a. But if there's any single show that threatens to cause a traffic jam of new audiences and seasoned galleristas alike, it has to be the 3-D show at Young Projects. Known as a cutting-edge destination for video-based art, its project space presents Turkish artist Refik Anadol's first U.S. exhibition of his unique applications of interactive technologies for projection mapping, lasers, augmentation and immersive environments. Back in its main gallery, prepare for a bit of the old mind-melt with Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space: A Global Glimpse of 3-D Stereo Works by Contemporary Artists, taking a look at the rapid evolution of 3-D digital/video in the service of fine art in ways that blur boundaries, genres, the real/virtual divide and even a few laws of physics.
Mondays-Fridays. Starts: March 19. Continues through May 10, 2013
