Roberts & Tilton is pleased to announce the inaugural exhibition, Macrocosm. This group exhibition, consisting of new monumental works by gallery artists, is in celebration of the opening of Roberts & Tilton’s new space in Culver City.
Throughout the history of art, artists and scholars alike have struggled to define the world through representation—the result being the conception of the universe as an all-encompassing, well-ordered cosmos, or “macrocosm.” Composing the macrocosm are smaller microcosms; conversely, the microcosm itself embodies the macrocosm in miniature. Following in this vein, Macrocosm highlights the gallery’s internationally diverse program, expanding on the notion of the cosmos as a whole, comprised of many smaller elements. With contributions by both American and internationally based artists, the exhibition expounds on an immense variety of global, social, and political topics, reflective of the diversity of the world in its entirety. However disparate the artistic styles and concepts of Macrocosm are, the common theme throughout is the affinity among the gallery’s many “microcosms.”
