good vibes, curated by Shana Nys Dambrot (Arts Editor, LA Weekly) and Hunter Drohojowska-Philp (Author, Rebels in Paradise: The Los Angeles Art Scene and the 1960s), offers an expanded view of geometric abstraction as it evolved in Southern California beginning in the 1950s to include the properties of light and the emotional and transcendent uses of color.

ZZyzx redux, curated by Bernard Leibov (Director, BoxoPROJECTS), and presented with the support of The Art Collective Fine Art Services, is an exhibition inspired by this remote corner of the Mojave Desert that shows the full cycle of modern southern desert history. from California: Native Trade Route; at the Gold Rush-era Federal Fort; at the railroad outpost; to a highly publicized spa resort; and finally an environmental research station. These cycles have stimulated optimism, creative development and new technologies as well as related aspects of dislocation, exploitation and environmental damage. The exhibition questions the sustainability of the ongoing land rush on the territory through works inspired both by the attractive qualities of the region (light, space, architecture, nature, art of living) and those remembering where history has taken us before.
The exhibition includes works by artists Blake Baxter, Diane Best, Ryan Campbell, Gerald Clarke Jr., Sofia Enriquez, Kim Manfredi, Carlos Ramirez, Cara Romero, Aili Schmeltz, Ryan Schneider, Phillip K. Smith III and Kim Stringfellow.
