Mind Frames encompasses two artists’ projects curated by Janet Levy, for
Arts Brookfield at 7+FIG at Ernst & Young Plaza in downtown Los Angeles, conceptually connected by the idea of “freeze frame,” a cinematic practice that creates a vivid, motionless scene or image. Visually encouraging the use of imagination, these two window installations by Los Angeles based artists
Lesley Moon and Christopher Haun each invite the viewer to pause and take time for stillness and reflection in the midst of an urban setting.
Lesley Moon’s The Golden Veil (Et in Arcadia…) is a large-scale photographic work depicting a shimmering gold curtain. Representing a threshold between public and private, exterior and interior spaces, the veil invites the viewer to consider exchanges and intersections of everyday life and symbolic structures, raising questions of the act of viewing itself and the imaginative possibilities for reflection within the urban environment.

Opening reception and artist talk: October 14, 5pm – 9pm
Christopher Haun’s Arctic Wave: Big Breakwater, a mosaic wave composed of precisely cut tiles from surf magazines, addresses our vital connection with water, always moving, tides ebbing and flowing with waves breaking and receding. This project encapsulates a specific moment in time when water has been rendered motionless, frozen in time, reflecting tranquility, calm and stillness.
