Jason Glasser
"Distant Land"

OPENING: August 21, 2014
Design Matters, 11527 West Pico Blvd., LA, CA 90064

Design Matters presents Jason Glasser’s first Los Angeles solo exhibition, DISTANT LAND. Glasser is an American painter, filmmaker and musician who has been living and working in France since 2002.

For this exhibition, Glasser explores the associations evoked by the title of the show, with a new series of pantings on paper and a sculptural painting installation made specifically for the Design Matters space in Los Angeles. The opening will include a musical and spoken word performance by Glasser and the Los Angeles based musician Sam Amidon.

Jason Glasser's diverse artistic practice has produced works in painting and drawing, installation, film and video, photography, performance and musical composition. His work has been shown internationally and appears in the collections of the Centre National des Arts Plastiques, France, the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York, and Le Point Ephémère, Paris, France.

The opening reception for Distant Land will take place Thursday, August 21 at Design Matters Gallery from 6-9, with a performance at 8. The reception is open to the public, and the exhibition will be on view through August 29, 2014.
