Hashimoto Contemporary: Lauren YS + Miranda Tacchia

Lauren YS:

XENOPHILIA

March 2nd - March 23rd, 2019


Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Xenophilia, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles based artist Lauren YS. The artist’s inaugural solo exhibition at Hashimoto Contemporary, she takes the viewer on a psychedelic and surrealist exploration of gender and identity.


Inspired by Shunga (traditional Japanese erotic art) and science fiction, Lauren YS has created a world filled with writhing and cavorting characters that defy traditional categorization or binaries. Animals and humans morph and meld with one another, recalling symbols and metaphors from YS’ multi-cultural background and influences.


Each piece celebrates the “other,” deviants and monstrous miscreants entwined in joyful exploration. YS states, “The concept of ‘xenophilia' expands to promote a ubiquitous enthusiasm for all which is strange and other within the bounds of positivity and consent, leaving the viewer with the unequivocal notion that, in the end, the freaks have it.”



Please join us Saturday, March 2nd from 6pm - 8pm for the opening reception of Xenophelia. The artist will be in attendance. In conjunction with the opening, Miranda Tacchia will have a concurrent solo presentation in the space.


The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, March 23rd.

Miranda Tacchia:

Scandalized

March 2nd - March 23rd, 2019

Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Scandalized, the debut solo exhibition of works by Los Angeles-based artist Miranda Tacchia. The artist’s minimal illustrations are imbued with contemporary commentary, humor and Tacchia’s unique and indelible attitude.


With a background in animation and character design, Miranda Tacchia’s concise drawings offer biting and witty observations of dating, relationships, feminism and being a woman today. Each of her titles is paired with a colorfully hued and emotive female figure, such as “When he stumbles over his words every time he looks at you” pictured above. Each of her characters simultaneously embodies vulnerability, strength and self-confidence.


Working on a small scale, Tacchia’s work beckons the viewer in to investigate each character, each narrative and each side long glance. The highly relatable nature of her work perfectly embodies intimate, often hilarious, everyday moments of women moving through the world.



Please join us Saturday, March 2nd from 6pm - 8pm for the opening reception of Scandalized. The artist will be in attendance. In conjunction with the opening, Lauren YS will have a concurrent solo presentation in the space.


The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, March 23rd.
