FEBRUARY 13, 2009 - MARCH 15, 2009
Departing from a series of recent interventions, Midnight Mission attempts to further Sarah Cain’s interest in the collapse of painting into architecture, responding directly to the social and structural conditions of the gallery space, while simultaneously introducing blank canvases and sculptural ephemera to further the tensions between abstraction and site-specificity. Conceived as a set of distinct objects within a unified sculptural tableau, the installation as a whole adopts and resists relationships to form, color, line, and pattern, playing off architectural motifs and painterly conventions throughout.
This project is affiliated with the 2008 California Biennial, organized by the Orange County Museum of Art, and curated by Lauri Firstenberg. CB08 is produced in tandem with LAXART Public Art and Off Site Initiatives with ForYourArt.
