Craft & Folk Art Museum features Mads Christensen in "Work Over School" Exhibit, Los Angeles
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 24 | 6–9pm
"Work Over School" sheds new light on the idea of the self-taught artist by examining the work of nine established and emerging artists who have developed great conceptual and technical skill through nontraditional means. Combining their training in other professional fields with their own artistic investigations, these artists produce a dynamic range of works in painting, metal, sculpture, and ceramics that embody a reverence for materials and commitment to process and technique. Curated by independent curator Jill Moniz.
Artists: Fred Eversley, Lisa Bartleson, Dana Bean, Mads Christensen, Susan Feldman, Miguel Osuna, Cola Smith, Gerard Stripling, and Valentin Toledo.
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 24 | 6:00–9:00pm | $12 entry / free for members
This exhibition is made possible in part by the Pasadena Art Alliance, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, and the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles.

Salford Quays, U.K. "Lightwaves" is a festival celebrating the crossover between digital light and art, where artists have an opportunity to take over public spaces around the city of Salford Quays--and this year, Mads Christensen is one of three artists headlining. His piece, titled 'Cathedral of Mirrors', consists of twelve 12-foot tall columns that respond to the movement and gathering of humans within it. High-tech sensors measure the movement of people and send pulses of colored light through the columns as people congregate.
