Opening reception: Saturday, July 8, 2006 7-10 pm

Avenue 50 Studio in Highland Park presents its new exhibit, “Holy Nuptials” featuring art that speaks to the institution of marriage and spectacle of weddings. A loaded and contradictory subject, “Holy Nuptials” promises to be an irreverent, romantic, heartfelt, scary, unsettling and/or strange exhibit. The artists invited to participate bring to the subject of marriage and weddings their personal beliefs be they married artists, thrice married, divorced, or single.

The show came about because of my recurring images having to do with weddings and receptions. I wanted to see what artist’s take on the marriage theme would be. Some of the artists happen to be happily married, some divorced, single, others indifferent and some, like myself riveted by the spectacle some weddings can be. The show will be an objective, romantic, sarcastic and strange look at why marriage matters or doesn’t and how it defines, confines, fulfills, strangles, enables, empowers and liberates those who practice it. — José Lozano
