Discover Disrupted Realism in OMA’s Upcoming Exhibition “More Disruption: Representational Art in Flux”

By   /  May 17, 2024  /  No Comments


OMA! Oceanside Museum of Art will present a new juried exhibition, “More Disruption: Representational Art in Flux” from June 8 – September 15, 2024. This mind-bending exhibition, juried by John Seed, Aleah Chapin, and Timothy Robert Smith, explores the dynamic shifts in representational art that has been “disrupted” by abstraction, web-based imagery, and socio-political concerns in response to contemporary life.

As representational art continues to evolve, this exhibition invites viewers to engage with artworks that challenge traditional boundaries. Through various mediums and styles, this exhibition of over 50 works offers a narrative on how contemporary issues influence artistic expression. Each piece showcases how today’s artists must find the combination of subjects and individual hybrid styles that engage their artistic imagination, resulting in works that energize the flux of contemporary representational art.

This exhibition is inspired by juror John Seed’s book of the same name, as well as his earlier book “Disrupted Realism: Paintings for a Distracted World.”
