Austin Eddy - Beth Stuart - Olivier Kosta-Théfaine
LVL3 is proud to present Rendering Emblems, a three-person exhibition featuring Austin Eddy, Beth Stuart, and Olivier Kosta-Théfaine. Eddy’s works question the history of painting, and he finds his answers through creating via play. Stuart’s influence of feminist art and criticism often finds its way back into her work, transposing misshapen and awkward forms into delicate compositions. As a self-taught artist, Kosta-Théfaine takes his ideas from the city and streets, drawing in new discoveries from neglected places into his work. Rendering Emblems brings together the practices of these three artists, from three different countries, intertwined by their critical engagement with painting.
Opening Reception:

Stephen Collier - Ben Sanders
LVL3 is excited to present Whiteface: a two-person exhibition featuring New Orleans-based Stephen Collier and Los Angeles-based Ben Sanders. Collier’s work is rooted in cultural and historical artifact and brings to attention the unknown or the uncertainty of facts. Sanders explores social themes while creating personal mythologies around food, race, faith, language, appropriation, and artistic production. Whiteface alludes to the origins of the clown and the development of the character throughout history. As one of the most important theatrical designs of the 1800’s, the whiteface clown grew from a sophisticated character into a clumsy one, of which modern society now associates with. Whiteface as the basis of a costumed character plays with both identity roles as well as a wide range of emotional expressions. Similarly within the constructs of whiteface and character association, Collier and Sanders’ play encourages viewers to look beyond the colored surfaces that exist in their work.
