Jaime Muñoz: Loveline: Long Beach Museum of Art, Long Beach, CA
The fourth industrial revolution is marked by the blurring of boundaries between the physical, digital, and biological spheres. Artists Mario Ayala, Gajin Fujita, Jay Lynn Gomez, Sayre Gomez, Alfonso Gonzalez Jr., Greg Ito, Yung Jake, Aaron Elvis Jupin, Lori LaMont, David Leggett, Tidawhitney Lek, Patrick Martinez, Matt McCormick, Jaime Muñoz, Julian Pace, Devin Reynolds, Gabriella Sanchez, Christine Wang, and Eric Yahnker have created a visual language to understand this new and evolving familiar in real time. Individually, the works of each artist inspect the material and psychological effects of virtual reality, over consumption, and environmental crisis among other universal truths. Collectively, their observations zoom out on the very essence of human spirit—in search of connection with each other, within ourselves, and to this physical Earth.
