Oh Nancy Presents "Blank Land" At The Torrance Art Museum In CA, Including Some Of Our Favorite Boston Artists!

Oh Nancy presents, "Blank Land" A nomadic pop-up, two-day-only show at the Torrance Art Museum! Opening on Saturday June 30th, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm "Blank Land" is collaborative show exploring urban identity crises, sacrifice, and heroism through the lens of mythology and American values. The show features the work of over forty artists, including: Michelle Matson, Aili Schmeltz, Emily Link, Bill Dunlap, Brian Willmont, Jenny Morgan, Sam Gibbons, Cat Chiu Phillips, Trent Call, Erin M Riley, Kenny Riches, Cara Despain, Todd Ryan White, Morganne Wakefield, Alex Demaria, Michael Ryan Handley, Jorge Rojas, Mary Toscano, Andrew Shaw, Courtney Moy, Annelie McKenzie, Tina Linville, Nick Rodrigues and many others. Oh Nancy is an national art collective that provides a vehicle for artists -- presenting them with a narrative structure that facilitates collaboration and multiple-authorship. Using contradiction, symbolism, and coincidence histories are created and layered-- anchored in this narrative blueprint. The story is a mythical and satirical portrait of Americana that examines fanaticism and the complexities of the American hero. Artists respond to different facets of the story, organically building it along the way, each exhibition the latest chapter in an ever growing epic. Oh Nancy was created and is directed by Arthur Henderson, Nathan Wellman and Fionn McCabe. The "Blank Land" is also open for viewing on Tuesday, from 11:00am to 5:00pm
