DEPART Foundation will present Sea Sick in Paradise, a group exhibition curated by Amy Yao, featuring works in a variety of media by 46 established and emerging artists, many of whom are surfers themselves or inspired by surfing, the ocean, and coastal culture. Alongside these artists are also works presented by professional surfers, inspired by their sport – whether documenting their subculture or creating abstract and symbolic imagery. In keeping with the theme of summer surf, the large-scale exhibition will occupy a new, 4,000 square foot pop-up venue in Malibu Village.
On Tuesday, September 19 at 7pm, join Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Barbarian Days William Finnegan in conversation with artist Barry McGee, moderated by Jon Christensen, professor at the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability and a founder of the Laboratory for Environmental Narrative Strategies at UCLA. Introduction by Catherine Malcolm Brickman, Chair, Malibu Arts and Culture Commission.
