Concrete Walls Projects presents a one-day exhibit organized for PØST’s July 2011 Kamikaze Exhibits series titled, Case Study: Løs Angeles. This exhibition is a curatorial case study, examining work by artists whose practice involves rigorous modes of research, as they document the microcosms of subculture and landscape that is the greater Los Angeles area. But unlike traditional gallery exhibits, which primarily function as an expedient dialogue between buyer and seller; the artist run space can subvert that dialogue, while maintaining a gallery’s purpose, in order to create a conversation among artists. This exhibit is designed to reveal diverse hypotheses in artistic investigation, in an effort to attain a community exchange and discourse among artists. These ten artists arouse the dialogue, as they work within the constraints of the two-dimensional picture plane to obsessively document and rediscover the ever-changing definition of Los Angeles.

Case studies: Los Angeles punk, Mount Waterman, Rodeo Drive socialites, Idyllwild, illegal downtown LA fix gear bicycle racing, LA Harbor, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Exposition Boulevard, and the 405 freeway.

July 2011 Kamikaze Exhibits
In the month of July, PØST will present thirty-one different exhibits. The July 2011 Kamikaze exhibits continue in the same tradition of thirty or thirty-one Kamikaze exhibits that were presented at PØST in September of 2009, July 2010 and January of 2011. Difficult times invite difficult gestures. By design, these exhibits remain close to art and distant from the other stuff. A book will be produced for each Kamikaze month.
