Know Hope at Carmichael Gallery (and in your newspaper)
Keep an eye out while browsing your local newspaper this week because you might just find an extra-special supplement inside. Israeli visual and installation artist Know Hope has inserted his own mini-paper, The Anytimes, into various publications in news boxes and stands on the streets of Los Angeles. The Anytimes is a special work of art featuring poetry, ponderings, and classic imagery by one of Israel’s most important young contemporary voices.
Not many copies of The Anytimes exist, however, and no one except Know Hope knows exactly where they have been placed, so be sure to spread the word about this exciting project. You’ll need to run to the newsstand yourself to make sure you get one!
On Thursday, June 4th, from 7-10pm, Know Hope will present his largest and most detailed indoor installation to date at Carmichael Gallery, a project entailing thousands of paper raindrops, fishing twine, weights, sheets of cardboard and more.
30,000 paper raindrops. 40,000 feet of fishing twine. 2,500 fishing weights.Hundreds of sheets of cardboard fashioned into miniature works of art and a crowd of life-size cut-out characters. Incorporating all of the above ingredients and more for his debut Los Angeles solo show at Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art on June 4th, 2009, Israeli artist Know Hope invites you to literally step inside one of his artworks for a visual experience unlike any you have ever encountered and one you will never forget.
“This exhibition holds nothing but a reflection of where we are now, and offers us nothing but the suggestion of adaptation and (re)adjustment to the current tides. This is a binding burden, and we’re all in this together.” – Know Hope
Know Hope will be in attendance at the opening reception of “the times won’t save you (this rain smells of memory)” on Thursday, June 4th, 2009 from 7.00pm – 10.00pm. The exhibition will be open for viewing through Thursday, July 2nd 2009 from 1.00pm -7.00pm.
Know Hope was born in California and currently resides in Tel Aviv, Israel. He has worked in the streets for several years and participated in exhibitions in Israel, UK, Norway, Italy, Canada, and the US. “I hope to move heavy hearts at least one inch to the side by confessing that I’m petrified and secretly in love with the world.”
