Installations Inside / Out: Armory 20th Anniversary Exhibition
September 20 – December 31, 2009
Opening reception Saturday, September 19, 2009, 6-9 p.m.
Jay Belloli and Sinéad Finnerty-Pyne, curators

This exhibition will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Armory Center for the Arts by commissioning contemporary artists, who have created art installations in the past, to make new site-specific art installations both inside and outside the Armory.   Approximately 10 of the installations will be at outdoor sites at various locations in Pasadena, including Edgar Arceneaux, Daniel Buren, Rockne Krebs, Barry McGee, Carlos Mollura, Matthew Moore, Jane Mulfinger, Bruce Nauman, Barbara Smith.  Artists in the exhibition will include Kim Abeles, Deborah Aschheim, Carl Cheng, Seth Kaufman, Michael C. McMillen, Sarah Perry, Ed Ruscha, Betye Saar, John Trevino, Pae White, and Mario Ybarra Jr. Videos of Arceneaux’s and Nauman’s off-site performances will be in the Armory’s gallery. Barbara Smith will also do a performance at the exhibition opening on September 19, 2009.

The exhibition will reflect the Armory Gallery’s long-standing goal supporting contemporary Southern California artists, as well as the Gallery’s determination to bring art to the public in exterior, non-art locations.

A limited edition publication documenting the exhibition will accompany this show.
