Andrade’s aim is to investigate methods of power in our constructed environment by considering issues relating to the fabricated landscape such as architecture and urban planning along with the many forms these disciplines take. Andrade is very much interested in questioning how space is produced. How it changes and shifts and more importantly how it changes us.
It has often been said that a portrait is not only capturing ones physical attributes, but their essence as well. In this exhibition entitled Portraits Andrade is considering the city and all that it is made up of. Mimicking materials and forms, there are elements from each work that will call attention to the familiar and unfamiliar alike. The work, similar to the city, has a clash of elegance with undertones of violence. It is not only about the violence in relation to the corporeal but also how it exists as an emanating symbol.
Robert Andrade is an interdisciplinary artist and has exhibited throughout the United states including Chicago, New York City, Southern California and Dallas, TX. He is Scheduled for a residency at Centraltrak in Dallas and a solo exhibition Fall 2016 at Providence College.

For years, Pea Hix has accumulated amateur paintings from thrift stores and garage sales. Most of his finds have hung on his own walls or sat neglected for years in a storage shed. Now’s the time to assemble some of his favorites and see what they all look like together.

TWOFOLD_ is a collaborative exhibition by San Diego New Media Artists Lawrence Chit and Kim Garcia at disclosed unLocation Gallery. Using a hybrid of open-source technology combined with traditional art practices, Chit and Garcia manifest the various relationships between users and devices through a series of prints, sculptures, and installations. The works exhibited look into the digital’s role in preservation and replication, asking viewers to reflect on their own uses of technology. This exhibit is the first series of explorations involving the artists’ interpretation of this unresolved union.
The artists encroach upon digital and physical realms as parallel dimensions existing within the user-device relationship. Current digital technologies have introduced efficiency in various tasks ranging from communication to image production leading to a more seamless dependency on software-hardware interfaces. With the introduction of 3D printing we are able to now produce everyday physical objects from digital renderings once limited to the screen; the membrane between the physical and digital has dissipated.The artists employ a series of investigations involving translations that occur from mechanical and digital reproduction, putting one object through both processes. Through the juxtaposition of these two methods, the artists are able to further gain insight into our current state.
Please join us for the first installment of Lawrence Chit and Kim Garcia’s collaborative project. The opening reception for TWOFOLD_ will be on Saturday, September 13th, 2014 from 6pm to 9pm at disclosed unLocation and following shortly will be the artists’ second installment, Our Current State, on Monday, October 20th, 2014 from 5pm to 9pm at UC San Diego’s Adam D. Kamil Gallery.
NWMMP’s LA-LA Tour is coming to Disclosed unLocation on Saturday 8/23 from 11am-2pm
Since July the Nationwide Museum Mascot Project (NWMMP) has been traveling the Western Hemisphere for its LA-LA Tour: From Los Angeles to Latin America. Beginning in Los Angeles, the tour has traveled from South America up through Central America and will soon reach San Diego.
Taking their cue from sports-team mascots, NWMMP is promoting art museums and venues from LA to Latin America by surprising visitors, passersby, staff and the online community with crowd-pleasing antics, handing out swag, handshakes, high-fives, hugs and a host of other activities.
On August 23, the tour will stop at Disclosed unLocation Gallery from 11-2pm to promote and mascot the space. The exhibition will run through September 6 and will include a sampling of LA-LA Tour mascot costumes and swag.
Although often invited, NWMMP is also known to infiltrate museums that they feel need some mascot love. Mascot costumes are swiftly constructed out of recycled thrift store materials and other found junk. For the LA-LA Tour, while some museums have enthusiastically requested mascot representation, others have emphatically declined or have actively ignored their solicitations. This is all the more reason for NWMMP to continue its trailblazing effort to provide a mascot to every museum across the globe.
Over the course of the LA-LA Tour, NWMMP has mascotted the following venues: Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); Museum of Latin American Art (MoLAA), Long Beach; Fowler Museum at UCLA, Los Angeles; Orange County Museum of Art (OCMA), Newport Beach; the memorial site of Jeffrey Vallance’s Blinky the Friendly Hen, Los Angeles Pet Memorial Park; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Buenos Aires (MACBA), Argentina; MAC Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Santiago, Chile; and MAC Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Lima; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Bogotá (MAMBO); four venues is Mexico City: Museo Jumex, Museo Soumaya, Casa Vecina and Museo Experimental El Eco.
