Abigail Ogilvy Gallery and Cierra Britton Gallery present their first collaborative exhibition – Déjà Vu. The opening reception is on February 24th, 2024 and the exhibition runs through March 30th, 2024, at 1923 S. Santa Fe Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90021. This group exhibition features artists of multiple disciplines including Autumn Breon, Uzumaki Cepeda, Alanis Forde, Lewinale Havette, Jazmine Hayes, Monica Hernandez, Rugiyatou Ylva Jallow, Ambrose Rhapsody Murray, and Kelli Ryan. 

Déjà Vu is a group exhibition that explores the idea of multiple realities and worlds built by artists that bring the viewer into the mind of the artist. Inspired by escapism, the works in Déjà Vu include mythical figures, imagined landscapes, and new paradigms that feel familiar to each artist. The title of the exhibit references the common French phrase for the phenomenon of feeling as though one has lived through the present situation before. It is an illusion of memory whereby—despite a strong sense of recollection—the time, place, and context of the “previous” experience are uncertain or impossible.
