Buried Sunshine

Art Show: 14/09/2023 • All Day • Los Angeles

Event Details

Sean Kelly is delighted to present Buried Sunshine, Julian Charrière’s highly anticipated first solo exhibition at Sean Kelly, Los Angeles. Buried Sunshine explores the entangled histories of Los Angeles and the discovery of petroleum there in the late 19th century, a catalyst which industrialized the region and transformed LA into the second largest city in the United States. Utilizing photography, film and sculpture, Buried Sunshine investigates Los Angeles through the lens of geological time, in the process urging viewers to reflect on how our relationship with the materials we appropriate as fuel come to inform how we perceive the world around us.

The show runs until 4 November 2023.
