Los Angeles, CA, July 21, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- In May, curator Daniel Rolnik drove across America to visit artists living outside of Los Angeles and New York. He arrived in each city with an open mind - ready to explore whoever was suggested by scholars or encountered by magic. And there was a lot of magic. When he parked in New Orleans it was the French Quarter Festival, when he parked in Dallas it was the art fair, when he parked in Tucson it was the open studio night. All of which was unplanned and fantastic. He thoroughly documented artists’ studio practice and then invited them to partake in the most spectacular collection of contemporary work to have ever been shown. When you walk into the Artists Across America collection, you are traversing the entire country in one glance. You are driving from coast to coast and outside your window is the artwork of the nation.
