Shadow Studies
2014 - ongoing
Shadow Studies is a lifelong project, an initiative to invigorate localized knowledge. Private tutoring lessons have become an increasingly common practice for students seeking to advance in a competitive system of education. Shadow Studies uses the practice of private lessons, not for advancement within the capitalist model, but for the relationship, experience, and knowledge gained locally from an one-on-one pedagogical framework. As part of the project, participants are invited to teach a private course of their choosing. No monetary compensation is offered.

Suitable Solutions
Search Space (The Hornedo)
1952 Clinton Street
Los Angeles, CA

July 11-19, 2013
Opening Reception: July 11, 8-10pm
The search space is an area of all feasible solutions. Every solution can be marked by a point, and marked onto the area of the search space. Thus, the search space presents all possible solutions. In looking for a desired solution, one looks for the extreme point, often the lowest or highest.

"Suitable Solutions" presents work that plays with our desires to find a fixed solution. By disrupting conventional ways of obtaining meaning, these works push us into the space of considering all possible solutions, wherever that may be.

Featuring work by Nicholas Arehart, Katherine Davis, Pall Haukur, Chandler McWilliams, Brian O'Connell, and Emily Shananhan.

"Search Space" is the temporary name of a basement / gallery / studio space hidden in Echo Park, where Jonathon Hornedo eats / sleeps / paints / and sometimes hosts shows.
