Scott Marvel Cassidy: Levitate the White House

Scott Marvel Cassidy's project at LAMOA deals with gentrification, both as a phenomenon in local areas of Los Angeles such as as the Eagle Rock/Highland Park area and as a development that includes and affects the art world on multiple levels. His observations are displayed in a structure of thin plywood housing three dioramas. Cassidy's paintings, drawings and sculptures represent reality in a dreamlike state. His work focuses on the intersecting themes of memory, the immediate physical environment and the quandaries of referring to paintings as purely representational.

From Campus Road at Occidental College walk up to the fountain, turn right at the chapel, and walk downstairs by the library.
