Without opposing any rational methodologies, our intention was to bring together a group of artists who produce work with a Romantic raison d'être: to suspend temporality, to transcend language, and to embrace the possibility for the sublime in a contemporary territory often marked by looping self-reflexivity and irony. 

The work in this exhibition, which encompasses a wide range of approaches and media, is unified by a desire to translate authentic experience through affect and artistry. Rather than focusing on discrete gestures that rely on immediate art-historical or cultural context, the artists in "Another Romance" uncover a renewed interest in the universal. 

Another Romance brings together the work of seventeen artists from Belgium, France, Ireland, Britain, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands and the US, many of whom have never previously exhibited in Los Angeles. In effect, the gallery space comes to serve as a site for a trans-national convergence of ambitious works, ideas and conversations, offering new potential for the authentic, the affective, the beautiful and, for lack of a better word, the Romantic.
