Peggy Ahwesh, Heart_Land
JOAN Gallery, Los Angeles
October 11 – December 19, 2020

JOAN is delighted to host the first solo exhibition in Los Angeles of work by the much loved, sui generis, Pittsburgh-born, New York-based, experimental filmmaker, Peggy Ahwesh. Ahwesh will show four varied video installations based on films made between the early aughts and 2019: The Star Eaters; Lies & Excess; Bethlehem; and Kansas Atlas.

The films will be installed amidst a choreographed “Curtain Accompaniment,” designed in direct response to the films, by L.A. artist, Yunhee Min.

The exhibition is curated by Linda Norden.
