Exene Cervenka, founding member of celebrated LA punk band X, writer, artist, poet and spoken word artist, is currently providing a rare glimpse into her collection of self-produced journals plus new artworks in “The Dust of Sunlight, Exene Cervenka Journals & Collage 1974-2015”. The opening night reception took place Saturday, June 6 and Cervenka was on hand to sign copies of her catalogue “America the Beautiful”.
Cervenka’s exhibit, curated by Kristine McKenna, displays arty journals which she started to create when her band was on the road on tour, and which she continued to create for several years. Also several collage pieces from a new series, The Singularity, using old ads, graphics featuring vintage typography and illustrations are also on view.
“The Dust of Sunlight” is on display thru July 4 at Sloan Projects, 2525 Michigan Avenue, Gallery B5 (Bergamot Station Arts Center), Santa Monica, CA 90404.
