Kim Tucker: Unquiet Slumber

No Waiting/Kim Tucker
ShoeboxLA Presents
Kim Tucker: Unquiet Slumber

Saturday, October 15, 2011 from 4-7pm

All Star Lanes – Eagle Rock
4459 Eagle Rock Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90041

ShoeboxLA is pleased to present Los Angeles artist Kim Tucker. Tucker's Unquiet Slumber is a sculptural expedition into the wild and woolly world of the unconscious. Hidden desires, complications, filtered memories and primal impulses mix together in the bold world of the inner mind. Within the exhibition, a central female figure represents the human experience as all and nothing. She is the imperfect Eden where impulses prevail and thoughts run freely. The surrounding figures are manifestations of her unfettered mind, primal creatures, pitiful ghosts and human dummies. Unquiet Slumber is a challenge to the rules and boundaries of the conscious world; it is simply a place where the mind can freely experience impulse and wild abandon.

Kim Tucker earned her MA in Fine Arts/Ceramics from Ohio State University and her BFA (with High Distinction) from the California College of Arts and Crafts.

( - All Star Lanes is located in northeast Los Angeles in the community of Eagle Rock, 15 minutes from downtown Los Angeles between Pasadena on the east and Glendale on the west.)

September 17 - Little Tokyo Galleria

Amy Maloof: Grave Architecture

Saturday, September 17, 2011 from 4-7pm

Little Tokyo Galleria – Second Floor
333 S. Alameda St.
(at 3rd), Los Angeles, CA 90013

ShoeboxLA's inaugural exhibition will feature Pomona-based artist Amy Maloof.  Maloof explores the odd-ball and humorous architectural motifs of mini-mall and strip mall culture seen around Southern California. The artist isolates these strange icons, calling more attention to their general weirdness beyond their original environments. These images have a cartoony or folksy look yet are used for serious marketing purposes.  Maloof's monuments celebrate our submission to the passive pleasures of mass visual consumption.  

ShoeboxLA gives Los Angeles artists an opportunity to do one-day, site-specific exhibitions outside the traditional gallery setting. Founders Sophia Allison and Paul W. Evans provide an intimate space that challenges artists' and viewers' expectations of size and scale. Locations change for each show but the space remains the same.

Email: for more info or press images. Private appointments are welcome.

(Little Tokyo Galleria is easily accessible via public transportation with plenty of street and on-site parking. One hour free with validation.  Visit for more info.)
