‘Summertime’ Meshes Artworks from Local Students, L.A. Art Group

Glendale Library, Arts & Culture and Brand Library & Art Center presents “Summertime: Supercollider + Students of Glendale Unified School District” curated by Marcela Vieira, in collaboration with Supercollider, a Los Angeles-based artist collective.
“Summertime” features artworks presented by Supercollider: Andrea Ganuza, Beatriz Toledo, Berfin Ataman, Brice Bischoff, Carolina Caycedo and David de Rozas, Edgar Fabián Frías, Isabel Beavers, Janaina Wagner, Joel Kuennen, Lauren Bon, Maurício Chades, Noara Quintana, Sofia Borges, Star Feliz, and Wallace Masuko and more than 50 student artists representing Clark High School, Crescenta Valley High School, Daily High School, Glendale High School and Hoover High School.
“Summertime” considers the landscape as the consequence of human production, the result of the transformation from its natural state. The topography has long been divided, fragmented and modified according to social, economic and aesthetic motivations. The artists in the exhibition present works with various materials and strange configurations, creating relationships between their works and the gallery space.
“Summertime” forges a path that seeks to investigate the reality and possibilities of representation, using fiction as a way to imagine alternative landscapes.
The exhibition title “Summertime” was inspired by the song written by George Gershwin, in particular the recording by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.
“Summertime” is a collaboration between Supercollider, Brand Library & Art Center, and Glendale Unified School District. High school students contributed artworks inspired by the curatorial concept of “Summertime” to show in conjunction with Supercollider’s exhibition.
The exhibit will be on view March 23 through May 18. Artists from Supercollider and Glendale Unified School District will be present at the opening reception on March 30 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Join the Brand Associates for Artful Conversations on Tuesday, April 23, at 6 p.m. for a collaborative workshop that invites participants to learn about the current art exhibition. Then join curator Vieira on Tuesday, May 14, at 7 p.m. for a discussion with artists presenting work in “Summertime.”
Brand Library & Art Center is located at 1601 W. Mountain St. in Glendale. Admission is free and open to the public; on-site, free parking is available. Learn more at brandlibrary.org.

First published in the March 23 print issue of the Glendale News-Press.
