If We Can’t Blast Through, I’ll Burn Through, Jordan Weber

Gallery 38 is more than happy to announce the first Los Angeles Solo Show by Jordan Weber titled “If We Can’t Blast Through, I’ll Burn Through”, on view Saturday December 12th to January 10th at Gallery 38.

Jordan Weber is a full time art-activist/curator from Des Moines, Iowa, where he currently lives. His “public installations” and studio work focus primarily on socio-environmental activism and race. Jordan’s work strives to speak for the underprivileged majority against the opulently ruling minority in order to shock the viewer from apathy hopefully perturbing oppressive conditioning to a state of self-realization.

Jordan’s public installations and gallery work has been shown and published in galleries and museums internationally including New York, Los Angeles, Oakland, Chicago, Des Moines, Omaha, Torino, Italy and Sao Paulo, Brazil. Jordan’s recent participation in the “Manifest Justice” exhibition alongside some of the world’s most respected artists, gained him national attention through hundreds of thousands of social media hits and countless articles from major new outlets. His work, raw and direct, presents harsh realities of American culture juxtaposed with popular culture and African history.

The show includes vintage political placards, civil rights photography and dozens of works by contemporary artists — such as a gutted police car from Ferguson, which, on Wednesday afternoon, was being transformed into a garden of sorts at the “Manifest Justice” space by Des Moines artist Jordan J. Weber.

“We really come from a place where artists are a vital ingredient to social change,” says Yosi Sergant, one of the exhibition’s organizers. “They can speak truth to power in so many ways — ways that many of us can’t find words for.”
