The Archer School for Girls Eastern Star Gallery will present Touch Museum 2.0 by local Los Angeles artist Julie Weitz, beginning Nov. 12 and running through Dec. 9.
The gallery is an immersive video installation that explores the experience of embodiment in the digital realm through the sensory phenomenon known as Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR.)
The exhibition originally premiered at Young Projects in Los Angeles and received critical attention in Artforum, the LA Times and on KCRW. For its newest incarnation at Eastern Star Gallery, Weitz will suspend a large video screen from the ceiling and cover the floor with acoustic foam and pillows. Viewers will be encouraged to lie down and lose themselves in Weitz’s mesmerizing imagery and the meditative soundscape, composed particularly for the exhibition by LA-based musician Deru. The show will also feature an intimate viewing station inside the gallery’s closet.
Archer will host a public gallery opening and reception for the artist at 5 p.m. on Nov. 12. The exhibition is open to the public by appointment through Dec. 9. at 11725 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, 90049. To make an appointment to visit the exhibition after the opening, please call 310.873.7043.
