EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

Diana Berger Art Gallery at Mt. San Antonio College is pleased to present "Odar" a solo exhibition featuring multimedia Los Angeles-based Artist Jason Perez, curated by Fatemeh Burnes.
   
            Jason Perez walks a fine line between art and document, fascination and familiarity, beauty and mundanity.  He manifests his preoccupation with the Armenian people, their history, their culture, and their nation by scouring modern Armenia for magic moments, most of them invisible to the rest of us, moments in which the quotidian becomes monumental and the monumental becomes gently absurd.  Armenia is layered with memory, and Perez excavates that memory as an outsider working with a clear, unromanticized eye but without the clinical regard of an anthropologist.
