Opening Reception of The Traveling Landscape by Agostino Iacurci

Join us at the Opening of The Traveling Landscape by Agostino Iacurci on Wednesday, September 27 from 6-9PM.  On view at the PDC Design Gallery from September 27-January 12, 2024. The exhibition titled “The Travelling Landscape” will feature eighteen works on paper, twelve paintings, one sculpture and two wall paintings. The Traveling Landscape is inspired by Iacurci’s fascination with cycloramas, large-scale panoramic paintings that wind around the inside of a cylindrical platform or circular space. The cyclorama is designed to provide visitors with an immersive visual experience. 

Iacurci transforms the interior of the Pacific Design Center Gallery into a kind of oasis that could be both a dazzling fata morgana and an ominous vision of the near future. In the basement, visitors enter a gloomy zone with a glowing pink neon cactus at the center of a black circular shape. The red walls are covered with pink and orange glowing rhombuses from which hang drawings of potted palms. Iacurci has transformed the upper floor into a viewing platform with palm trees and columns reminiscent of cloisters, monastery courtyards or villas. Large paintings of palms and cacti in flower pots hang between the palm murals, playing with different combinations and sequences of shape and color.
