Armory galleries are currently closed.
Our new exhibition opens on January 28, 2022.

This exhibition is shaped by the forces of proximity, friendship, generosity, and longevity. Buchanan, Hafif, and Smith met in the newly formed MFA program at UC Irvine and remained friends for life. Structured around the subjects of bodies, communication, and dwelling, this exhibition reveals a remarkable range of pursuits explored by the three artists for the past 50 years. Though each followed their own trajectory, this exhibition highlights the differences as well as the "empathic overlaps" of these life-long friends. Organized by guest curator Michael Ned Holte.
