In Conduction, the artworks exhibited – sculpture, photography, installation, drawing, painting, and video – employ performance as a part of the works’ formation.  The artist’s engagement with social space, subjects, place, narrative, and fabricated events is embedded within the art object.  While performance art might seem to emphasize the immaterial, the works featured in this exhibition do not reside solely in actions.  Rather, they are realized into material forms that can exist independently through implied, recorded, or referenced activities

Lynne Berman, curator, is a multi-disciplinary visual artist based in Los Angeles working in drawing, performance and installation.  Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at such venues as the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, Orange County Museum of Art, Center for Contemporary Art, Cincinnati, Pomona College Museum of Art, Torrance Art Museum, Swiss Cultural Institute in Rome, and Tom Jancar Gallery in Los Angeles and was the recipient of a 2012 COLA award.  She has curated and organized exhibitions including Lotus Motel, F.A.R. Bazaar, and Verbarian.  Her work has been presented in museums and galleries as well non-traditional sites such as supermarkets, the Los Angeles riverbed, train stations, and public plazas.
