SPF15 is a project space and 15-part exhibition series started by artist-curator Morgan Mandalay. Each exhibition takes place at a beach in San Diego under a 10x10ft. pop-up canopy. It is nomadic and amorphous. It functions as a meeting ground between San Diego’s dominant culture and the supposed high culture of the art world, of land and sea, of labor and leisure, and of art and experience. The beach becomes a place of dematerialization of an idea of authority over visual culture. This past August, the fifth installment of SPF15 featured artists Angie Jennings and Chris Warr.

Angela Jennings is an interdisciplinary artist who investigates hierarchical systems of circumstance. Often employing strategies of satire her works are transcribed through performance, painting, sculpture, video and photography.

Chris Warr draws freely from the rich history of facial representation, creating totems, icons, and portraits. In 2010, Chris co-founded, Space 4 Art, one of San Diego county’s largest non-profit arts facilities.
