Energy is all.
According to the Book of Genesis, creation began in a burst of pure energy – light. According to Einstein, energy is the source of all matter, and convertible with it. According to most artists, creative energy – an inner force – is the motivation of their lives. In the studio artists transform creative energy into material expression.

Artists are encouraged to submit works that celebrate the concept or force of energy in its broadest connotations or in its most focused denotations. The resulting juried exhibition will be a reflection of the range and depth of the submitted works.

He was a collaborating curator and contributing author for Made in California: Art, Image, and Identity 1900-2000 and for Tim Hawkinson, co-organized by LACMA and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

In 2010 he organized a 20-year survey exhibition of Los Angeles-based media artist Steve Roden for the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena.

Often focusing on issues of content and meaning in contemporary art, Fox has published and lectured widely. He was previously a curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., where he organized some of that museum’s first large-scale exhibitions of contemporary art.
