H I L D E is pleased to announce the opening of their first Los Angeles space on March 4, 2017. The exhibition 'Apollo on Earth' will display the work of 11 contemporary artists, organized by Hilde Lynn Helphenstein, to inaugurate the Los Angeles gallery. The artists include Eve Ackroyd, Carl D'Alvia, Grant Falardeau, Rebekah Goldstein, Gabriella Loeb, Megan Reed, Esther Ruiz, Tamra Seal, Sarah Thibault, Paul Waddell, and Jake Ziemann.
Apollo on Earth explores the human form during the beginning of the "great upload." As our relationship to the physical body begins disintegrating and technology becomes our prostheses, we must ask: where is the light "still suffused with brilliance from inside, like a lamp, in which his gaze, now turned to low, gleams in all its power?" (Archaic Torso of Apollo, Rilke). To that end, each participating artist will present a "statue" in the atrium of the gallery, accompanied by an assortment of busts in the library, and body studies in the front parlor and upstairs salon.
This exhibition at 4727 W. Washington Blvd, will be on view through April 15, 2017. For further information contact Hilde Lynn Helphenstein at the gallery or go to www.hilde.co. All images are subject to copyright. Gallery approval must be granted prior to reproduction.
