LA Spotlight: Petra Cortright at 1301PE

Petra Cortright is a master at manipulating digital files and incorporating stock digital effects. She seamlessly moves back and forth between creating animated and printed images, using Photoshop and compositing video footage. In her current exhibition "Predator Swamping", she presents digital paintings based on appropriated photographs of the landscape, many of which are incorporated into wall-sized tableaux.

The weather’s getting better, and hope is on the horizon as dates are cautiously announced for gallery and museum reopening. Prime yourself for the year’s first art outing with some online arts and culture events from around the world:

Watch the screening of Vaconsoft Gallery's current show, Europarc - A/M180, documents Marc Renshaw’s ‘surreal, hallucinogenic Ballardian nomadic travails’ along a mundane roadscape.

To mark the end of her exhibition with MIMA, an in-depth discussion with artist Otobong Nkanga will be hosted tonight.

A Beauty Class: Society, Politics and Transcendence is an event with author and social critic Minna Salami on how beauty could shape the sociopolitical, cultural and economic relationships that we have with each other and with the nonhuman natural world.
