Cali Thornhill Dewitt

Disaster Exercise installation
Aware of the fast evolutions of the popular culture, Cali Dewitt’s work is influenced notably by the press and Internet. The artist takes both media imagery and the information that are delivered, showing a keen interest in scandal titles in particular. Los Angeles, his favorite city, is also a source of inspiration.
For the Kaleidoscope festival at Lafayette Anticipations, Cali Dewitt makes images that effectively will set as wallpaper to the walls of the Fondation given to him. This work has already done at the famous gallery of contemporary art in Los Angeles, Regen Projects.
