From the Siren songs of Anthemoessa to the ping of an incoming message, humans fall prey to being seduced. Color, light, sound and movement lure us into paying attention. What do we receive in exchange? Are we rewarded and fulfilled, or have we been led astray? In Lure, 24 artists examine ideas of temptation, attraction, deception, repulsion, satisfaction and satiation. Belief systems are questioned and the curtain is pulled away – or is it? The most powerful seduction is never obvious.
Reception includes projections from San Diego artists Moya Devine and Omar Lopex along with performances by Mid-Air Trio (composed of painter Anna Stump; dancer Natalia Valerdi and musician Joyce Rooks) plus Los Angeles’ experimental audio collage group Mannlicher Carcano. Performances by Mid-Air Trio 5:00 – 6:30 pm and Mannlicher Carcano 6:30 -8 p.m. Guest Curator: Susan Myrland, independent curator, arts writer and artist, Silvergate Consulting
