Biomythography: Currency Exchange is the second exhibition of the Currency Series.
The Currency Series investigates multiple forms of currency, in particular, cultural currency and the ways in which they are encoded and decoded in our contemporary culture. Artists in the exhibition engage in multi-media practices as a means of revealing and navigating cultural currency. In November of 2015, Biomythography: Currency, opened at Eastside International in Los Angeles ( EXLA ) and included artists Albert Lopez Jr., Marton Robinson, and Glen Wilson.
In the second iteration at California Lutheran University, Currency Exchange seeks to extend this investigation, opening up the conversation to a larger group of artists from both the U.S. and Costa Rica who seek to juxtapose historical facts, life experience, pop culture, and mythology; in ways that challenge, form and inform, art history, display, anthropology, identity, and ritual as well as personal, universal, and institutional perspectives and histories.
