Transiting 1 at Arena One Gallery, Santa Monica, CA (July 24 - Aug 16, 2018)  I’ve organized 7 exhibitions in the last three years for non-profit and university galleries. Often these shows are developed in collaboration with others, as in the  Transiting  project, a joint venture between Gipe, Kim Griffith and John David O’Brien. For Gipe, the  Transiting  concept grew out of an interest in Situationism, and making work while under the self-guided hypnosis of the  dérive . The origin of the title comes from O’Brien’s interest in philosopher Mario Perniola's  Transiti   (1980), an essay that examines the role of images in a wide range of aesthetic and social contexts, finding the notion of  transiti  as a suitable way to capture the cultural aspects of technology that have altered today’s society. It is the organizers’ intention to continue  Transiting  as an event held in a different city each year, building on a roster of artists making work at the intersection of  art  and  movement .

Kamikaze Dérive @ PØST (Nobody Walks in LA)

Lawrence Gipe, Organizer

   Kamikaze Dérive @ PØST (Nobody Walks in LA) is a group exhibition of works by 15 LA artists that draws from the experience of wandering about the SoCal’s rich and varied urban landscapes. For Dérive Kamikaze @ PØST, Gipe asked artists to engage in a loosely-defined notion of dérive as a template for exploration and production, with an artwork being a visual manifestation of the experience. Exhibiting artists include Kim AbelesLaura AtchinsonGary BrewerNick BrownEileen CowinJoey ForsyteBobbi GentryAudra GrazianoKio GriffithAlexander KritselisJon KuzmichAline MareThinh NguyenDon Porcella and Jody Zellen
