Over the Valley - group show - Steve Turner Contemporary - LA

through August 10th 2013

Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present Over the Valley, an exhibition curated by Lucy Chinen, consisting of works by Metahaven, Goldin+Senneby, Electronic Disturbance Theater, Michael Manning, Katja Novitskova and Andrew Norman Wilson. Created over the last five years, the works reflect the distinct practices of three collaborative and three individual artists from Europe and the United States. They are not part of any movement and they do not share common methods of production, yet all the works in this exhibition address the ever-expanding cultural influence held by the most powerful tech companies. The title refers to Silicon Valley, its influence, its promise and its failures. Companies such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Apple promise a better life served by innovation and the artists in Over the Valley use such new technologies in unexpected ways.
