BULLET TRAIN LA/SF Round Tripp,   curated by Ruby Neri and Julia Leonard, evokes a dialogue between artists from two distinctly different locales—locales traditionally thought to be polar opposites: San Francisco and Los Angeles.This exhibition features  the work of:

ERIK BLUHM, KYLE FIELD, ASHLEY GALLAGHER, PAUL GELLMAN, CHRIS LIPOMI, JOSH LAZCANO, JULIA LEONARD, CHRIS LUX, ALICIA McCARTHY, LAUREN McKEON, RUBY NERI, MICHAEL RASHKOW, WILL ROGAN, TORBJORN VEJVI, NICHOLAS PITTMAN

Each city is representative of California’s identity, and yet one is known for promoting social awareness and civic responsibility, while the other, an advertisement for self-indulgence and consumerism. This show aims to bind the two cities through setting, and a mutual interest in environment. The artists’ works do not intend to reflect SF/LA ideologies however real or imagined, instead acts as an exploration into individuality, as well as the inconsistencies of each artist and their representative city. All of the artists share a strong connection to California, and often the connection is expressed through their work. A range of disciplines will be represented including sculpture, painting, drawing, collage, poetry, and film.
