Presented by France Los Angeles Exchange (FLAX) in partnership with Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE), the exhibition Paroxysm of Sublime is a “rush of stories,” telling of our affective relationship to the natural world in which we live.

Bringing together multiple geographies and temporalities, this exhibition is an examination of our definitions of home, environment, and change, featuring artworks and stories by Eddie Aparicio, Carmen Argote, Beatriz Cortez, Sara Favriau, Etienne de France, David Horvitz, iris yirei hu, Candice Lin, Laura Huertas Millán, Eva Nielsen, Nine Herbs Charm (Eric Kim, Hannah Mjølsnes, Saewon Oh), Hubert Robert, SMITH x DIPLOMATES and Daniel Otero Torres. FLAX Residents Eva Nielsen and Daniel Otero Torres will stay at the FLAX House to produce new works for the exhibition. Curated by Anna Milone, FLAX Program Director and Ana Iwataki, FLAX Associate Curator, the exhibition includes many newly commissioned works and is on view at LACE (6522 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90028) from September 18 to November 3, 2019.
