5790projects is thrilled to announce its inaugural pop-up group exhibition, Get Lucid, opening on October 7 from 8p-12a! Exploring the whimsical, volatile, erratic and beguiling nature of the subconscious, Get Lucid taps into the vivid recollection and impact of dreams – and how we keenly harness their influence.
Lucid dreaming refers to a lifelike hallucination, in which the dreamer can manipulate their experience through conscious acknowledgement of the dream state. The abstract intersection between latent and manifest, asleep and awake, structure and chaos, lucid dreaming can sometimes clarify the psyche while obscuring the physical. Conjured and encountered imagery becomes nebulous and unhinged from its source, forging a fluid relationship between fate and will as well as truth and fiction. The artists in Get Lucid demonstrate the alluring qualities of mercuriality – as present in the dreams of day and night – and the visceral characteristics that make each intellectually affective.
Hosted by The R&R Gallery in Downtown LA, Get Lucid will feature the work of five incredible LA-based emerging artists that are diverse in both practice and background. Visit their websites to learn more about them by clicking on the links below:
Get Lucid will remain on view through October 14th. Join us for the opening reception at the R&R Gallery on October 7 from 8pm to 12am – complete with a live set by Ghostkick and beverage service!
