Call in to speak with the host
Listen in! Monica talks to Christina and Elleni about their project, collaboration, and oddly, we get cut off in our chat about expecting the unexpected...whoa.
KNOWLEDGES at Mount Wilson Observatory brings together a constellation of more than thirty contemporary Los Angeles artists whose work extends from the nexus of ideas embodied by the Observatory itself: astronomy, scientific discovery, space exploration, optics, recorded observation, philosophical questions of cosmology, the history, aesthetics and ecology of the site and its influence upon the cultural landscape of Los Angeles. KNOWLEDGES engages the public in a unique opportunity to experience Mount Wilson Observatory through the lens of contemporary art.
Christina Ondrus, KNOWLEDGES Founder/Director, Co-Curator, is an artist whose work in painting, drawing and sculpture engages the paradox of ineffability—the articulation of experiencess or insights that defy precise description, from the rational to the irrational. She received her MFA from the California Institute of the Arts and BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her work has been included in exhibitons at Artist Curated Projects, Public Fiction, and Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE). In 2010, she was an artist fellow with the Terra Foundation for American Art, in Giverny, France. She lives and works in Los Angeles. christinaondrus.com
It's good to talk.
