PRESS | TIME4ART Exhibition • Cosimo Cavallaro "Unidentified Space"

Hill Section Life • December 2017



Cosimo Cavallaro“Unidentified Space”  through December 31, 2017

Homeira Goldstein and TIME4ART, with the support of the Manhattan Beach Art Center, presents “Unidentified Space,” an exhibition featuring new works consisting of large sculptures by nationally and internationally celebrated yet controversial Italian/Canadian and presently Los Angeles based Artist, Cosimo Cavallaro.

Envisioned by Hill Section resident Homeira Goldstein, the exhibition explored elements and spaces that push boundaries beyond the accustomed and familiar. Taken out of human scale, these large and massive inflated acrylic vinyl liner sculptures are melodramatic overemotional and exaggerated depicting the space between life and death. A space that could save lives but moments that no one wishes to experience.

Cavallaro states: “As a sculptor, I have been playing with how objects occupy space in both time and in memory. One day while driving past a car accident, I noticed an airbag that had been deployed. I realized this was the moment I was trying to sculpt. A moment where captured air defines the object that is the space between both life and death. The purpose of this work is to focus our attention on that captured moment.”

 The Son of Italian immigrants, Cosimo was born in Montreal in 1961. He was raised in Canada and Italy and has had many exhibitions throughout the USA, as well as in Canada, Germany and the Netherlands.

 The Artist Opening Reception took place on October 18th at the Manhattan Beach Art Center. This exhibition is presented by TIME4ART, a non-profit art educational organization in Manhattan Beach, California, with a mission of enhancing cultural art awareness in the South Bay and Greater Los Angeles.

 “Our heartfelt thanks to Manhattan Beach Art Center for their spirit of comradery and community.”    Homeira Goldstein
