San Diego, CA - In collaboration with Porto Vista Hotel, 1805 Gallery is thrilled to announce the launch of Conveyor, an exhibition series that takes place inside the elevators at the Porto Vista Hotel in Little Italy, San Diego. Curated by Lauren Siry, select contemporary artists will create art installations that respond to the intimate and often overlooked space. 

Daniel Barron Corrales will be the first featured artist in Conveyor, producing an installation composed of tinted, textured and reflective materials that explore transcendence and infinite space. Corrales will transform the constrained space of an elevator into an ever-expanding portal. In conjunction with Conveyor, the artist will have an exhibition of works on view in the hotel’s gallery located in the Lobby of the Porto Vista Hotel. The Lobby Gallery exhibition will be on view from April 19 through July 29, 2018. An opening artist reception will be held on Thursday, April 19, 2018, from 5-7PM. The art installation in the elevator will be on view through April 2019.  

Daniel Barron Corrales is a San Diego based artist that intuitively responds to the unique nature of environments, heightening the experience of space, light, color, and architectural elements through mixed media interactive sculpture and installations. Composed of mass-produced textiles and everyday construction supplies, Corrales’ work aims to visually engage audiences while renewing their perception of everyday materials and spaces. Corrales has exhibited work at the San Diego Art Institute, Mingei International Museum of Art and Ted X San Diego.
