Riffing on Roland Barthes:
The object in view assumes an exalted place: modern painting is a painting of the object. In it, Nature becomes a fragmented space, made of objects solitary and terrible because the links between them are only potential. Nobody chooses them for a privileged meaning, or a particular use, or some service; nobody imposes a hierarchy on them, nobody reduces them to the manifestation of a mental behavior, or of an intention, of some evidence of tenderness.
The Valley Performing Arts Center Gallery is located on the corner of Nordhoff St. and Lindley Ave. on the Loge Level, north of the Great Hall. Exhibitions are open to ticket holders one hour prior to performances, during intermissions and by appointment. Call Sally Adelblue at (818) 677-8800
