1. Euphoria Left the Room, curated by Judith Schwarzbart (curator of the Copenhagen Quadrennial: U-TURN), is an exhibition addressing the sense of creativity and visionary imagination, which throughout the 20th century was set free through experimentation and what-if scenarios governed by the “if anything was possible” logic commonly displayed in Sci-fi literature and film. This exhibition wishes to question what fragments of this avant-garde thinking and visual experimentation are still at work in contemporary art practice.

  2. Vice, the international arts and culture magazine distributed and published in more than 22 countries, came to Scion’s Installation L.A. Gallery for the ninth annual Vice Photo Show.

    This behind-the-scenes video features interviews with curator Amy Kellner, Jamie Lee Curtis Taete and Maggie Lee.

    Best known for documenting youthful excess, questionable street fashion and powerful scenes of political unrest around the world, Vice presented this exhibition in conjunction with “The 2009 Vice Magazine Photo Issue” and was curated by the magazine’s managing editor Amy Kellner. The acclaimed annual edition has previously featured works from Terry Richardson, Ryan McGinley, Richard Kern, Jerry Hsu, Rennie Ellis and many others.

    This year's exhibition featured Vice contributors Jamie Lee Curtis Taete, Maggie Lee, and former Vice photo editor, Tim Barber.

    Jamie Lee Curtis Taete is a 24-year-old English photographer whose candid images provoke intense reactions, often ranging from awe to disgust. His work has been featured in Vice, Chief, PerezHilton.com and The Guardian, and has been shown in Mexico, France, Britain, North America and Japan as part of the Tiny Vices traveling exhibition. Taete is a Vice UK staff photographer and maintains a photo blog at jamietaete.com.

    Maggie Lee is a zine-maker, Pratt graduate and Vice staff photographer who has developed a chronological archive of her 21 years through captured light and photocopies. Lee has shown her work in New York, New Zealand and Australia and has recently exhibited her Frenching zine at the New Museum’s “Younger Than Jesus” show.

    Tim Barber, a photographer, curator, publisher, designer and former Vice Magazine photo editor runs the online gallery TinyVices.com. Founded in 2005, the site reflects various approaches to photography and allows emerging and underexposed artists to upload their work onto the influential platform. For this exhibition, Barber will personally install a selection of works from the site.

  4. "Infinity" is a group exhibition of artists whose practices or aesthetics relate to the many facets of the infinite. The Vastness of this concept will be explored through painting, drawing, photography, and 3D multi-media installation. The subject matter as well as the medium will vary greatly. Some artists work may be a more literal representation of this subject, suggestive of such things as mathematics, space, time, technology, abstraction, pattern, or repetition, while others have chosen to address the opposite or "finite", such as fragility, mortality, the temporary, and even doomsday scenarios.

    The show features original work by:

    Ryan Travis Christian
    Richard Colman (appears courtesy of New Image Art, LA)
    N. Dash
