Love Songs for the Club is an exhibition featuring over 30 paintings, sculptures, installations and wall paintings by emerging artist Marina Ross in collaboration with Luis Sahagun. The exhibition explores how empathy is activated through romanticized objects and images that the artists have created individually and collaboratively, inspired by their personal histories. The title Love Songs for the Club is an appropriation of a Brooklyn dance party theme that asks the DJs to play romantic R&B/rap songs. This title was appropriated to talk about ideas of romanticism, mood and an immersive environment through a contemporary metaphor. While individual works depict romanticized motifs such as sunsets, figurative painting and hand-painted wall patterns, the curatorial installation reveals a whimsical, child-like mood.
