The group exhibition ’Does not Reproduce’ will be the first exhibition in Von Lintel Gallery’s new downtown Los Angeles location. The exhibition will display works of art that suffer significantly from their translation to a 1080 x 1080 pixelated square.
This exhibition makes the case that the pixelated facsimile of art on a backlit screen, where depth, detail and materiality become all but indiscernible, is not a substitute for the experience of standing in front of the actual artwork and engaging with it. Put your smartphone in your pocket, look at the art and allow yourself to get lost in it.
Buck the trend and visit the exhibition ‘Does not reproduce’ in person.
