The Brewery Project presents “Zero Degrees,” an exhibition of work by contemporary artists from Los Angeles organized by Samantha Fields.

This exhibition, in the words of the organizer, presents:
“a Los Angeles based project that grew out of the myriad connections between artists who have shown together, live/work together, and socialize together. The complex geography of Los Angeles makes it difficult to maintain artist friendships that are both social and critical. Over time, we have formed a small, interesting group of friends who do just that. This show explores a close knit community of artists. The artists in the show have various levels of personal and professional interaction with each other: from roommates, neighbors and mates, to former classmates and co-workers. We work together, critique each others work, support each other in creative endeavors, and just hang out. As a result, we maintain a dialog about our work.”

Zero Degrees is also pleased to announce the official launch of our website, which is serving as an online catalog for the exhibition, and as a resource for tracking the careers of artists in the show. The website, designed by Andre Yi, will be maintained and expanded to serve as an online database of emerging LA artists in our social sphere. Information about the website will be available at the opening.
