Join Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) San José’s Executive Director James G. Leventhal in dialogue with San Francisco Bay Area artists Sarah Hotchkiss, Lordy Rodriguez, and Susie Taylor as they explore the themes of hard-edged abstraction at the SJICA exhibition, Altered Perceptions (March 17 – August 13, 2023). Inspired by Riley’s embrace of a new language of abstraction, informed by mechanization, as well as magical plays on adjacencies, focusing on the viewer’s perceptions, each artist’s approach is unique: one more political, one working on a loom, and one exploring the visual puns embedded in Riley’s work. Together, the panel will explore Riley’s powerful legacy while displaying the variety of approaches to art-making across the Bay Area arts scene.
