Accidentally On Purpose, Aimee Goguen
2017, PANEL LA, January 20 - February 19
This exhibition includes new video and sculpture and marks the largest showing of Aimee Goguen’s work to date. As part of the installation, Goguen has included over 25 works from artists in her community. Each of these artists have collaborated with Goguen as performers in her video pieces. We hope that this exhibition speaks to the ways that art is always produced in community, that it does not appear discreet out of the void, but rather it is made through exchange, and floats on the stream of the collective unconscious.

ABOUT THE ARTIST Aimee Goguen completed her undergraduate studies in Experimental Animation, and then received her MFA in Visual Art at California Institute of the Arts. Her work uses repetition, surface and orifice to explore the grotesque, the intimate and the sensual. Backdrops of videos become sculptures, gestures are distorted, stilled and blown up to become color fields and lo-fi textures are painstakingly produced as pixelated surfaces are rendered in thousands of hand carved and painted blocks of wood. She has participated in several group shows nationally including Protuberances at LAXART, LA, Things, Participant Inc, NY, Outside Museum, with PMOMA and TPL, and Hustle With My Muscle; Outfest, REDCAT, LA. Her animation work is part of the films, Queercore: How to Punk A Revolution, and William S. Burroughs: A Man Within. Goguen co-curates video showcase, After Glow with Harry Dodge.
