Exhibition Opening Reception: NY/LA featuring Adam Berg and Georgi Tushev will be held tonight -- Friday, Jan. 13 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Santa Monica Museum of Art.

The Santa Monica Museum of Art will host an Exhibition Opening reception for NY/LA featuring Adam Berg and Georgi Tushev in its two project rooms tonight, Jan. 13 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

SMMoA Deputy Director Lisa Melandri is curator of Adam Berg: Endangered Spaces, which is a new, multi-dimensional video, sculpture, and photo installation that explores the relationship between man-made environments and displaced wildlife.

In this work, Berg identifies a parallel future between endangered animals and threatened architectural spaces.

New York-based independent curator Jeffrey Uslip is curator of Georgi Tushev: Strange Attractor, which presents a series of paintings and works on paper that investigate the effects of oil paint exposed to extreme magnetic fields.

Tushev’s work subverts the traditional medium of painting allowing viewers to consider the cellular cycle of life and the material possibilities of paint.

Santa Monica Museum of Art is located at 2525 Michigan Ave. G1.
