Date of Exhibition Opening: February 25, 2021
Artist: Devendra Banhart
Devendra Banhart’s exhibit, The Grief I Have Caused You, is on view by appointment at Nicodim Gallery, 1700 S. Santa Fe, downtown L.A., through March 20; nicodimgallery.com.
LA Weekly describes the exhibit: “From the Paris conjuring salons of Madame Blavatsky, to automatic writing and other surrealist parlor games and Carl Jung’s Red Book, Banhart is following a lineage of artists who deliberately operated at the active edge of imagination and the collective subconscious. The work also explicitly references Tantric art, specifically Vajrayana Buddhism and a mediation in which you visualize yourself — your head, your body, flesh and skull.”
