Leslie Hewitt and Torolab at LAXART Los Angeles

LAXART presents the Los Angeles debut of Tijuana-based collective Torolab and New York-based artist Leslie Hewitt. Founded in 1995 by Raul Cárdenas Osuna in Tijuana, Mexico, TOROLAB is an interdisciplinary collective engaged in a series of experiments responding to the urban conditions of Tijuana. Their project SOS: Emergency Architecture addresses questions of survival, emergency and camouflage in the urban context. For LAXART, Leslie Hewitt presents a new series of drawings and photo-sculptures. This debut exhibition in Los Angeles continues her investigation into the reciprocal relationship between sculptural and photographic forms. Make It Plain, a series of monumental still life photographs leans against the wall and depicts snapshot photographs attached to a large wooden easel. Impressions from the opening reception, LAXART, May 27, 2006. By VTV correspondents Slim K and Gerold Wunstel.
