The Downtown Art Center (DAC) Gallery is pleased to present Translations for Co-conspirators, an exhibition investigating alternative narratives by way of collaboration and process. Using repurposed material donated by IRS Demo, the exhibition underscores the transformative potential of commonplace materials, and the unique language that develops between artists through collaborative practice.

For this exhibition, six Los Angeles-based artists (Anna Ayeroff, Mabel Moore, Alexander Collins, Michele Jaquis, Corinna Loo, and Matthew Manos) were invited to collaborate with uniquely-abled artists from ECF Art Centers’ Downtown Los Angeles studio. The exhibition will also be featuring a film by New York-based artist Adam Frelin. The film was made in collaboration with a uniquely-abled man who is obsessed with meteorology and narrated the piece, commenting on storms as they were happening in the region during the making of the film. Works on display will feature the resulting collaborations, which range from sound-based and experimental videos, to photographic and design-based works.

Translations for Co-conspirators seeks to position the readymade object as both a point of origin for a conversation regarding materiality, and as grounds for considering how culturally-laden objects also function as portals to an artist’s vision. Engaging both the manifest function and transformative potential of everyday materiality, the works in this exhibition are bridged by reinvention
