Gallery Luisotti is excited to announce the opening of its summer exhibition, It Startled the Natives. This group show features photographs and paintings depicting the ever-evolving relationship we have with one of the most significant inventions of the 20th Century: the automobile. Whether fresh off the assembly line or abandoned in the desert, these machines have come to hold a unique place in our culture that transcends their utilitarian purpose.

The exhibition features work by gallery artists including Lewis Baltz, Frank Breuer, Joachim Brohm, John Divola, Frank Gohlke, Shirley Irons, Ron Jude, Milton Rogovin, Mark Ruwedel, Wilhelm Schürmann, and Toshio Shibata.


This exhibition runs  through September 1, 2012.
