“I have four cityscape paintings inspired by various Los Angeles urban scenes that will exhibit at haleARTS SPACE,” explains Harker. “Three of the paintings selected of Hollywood and Abbot Kinney are monochromatic and express energy of the scene through ink & acrylic on canvas. The fourth painting of Silverlake contains more colors applied with a palette knife.” For more information about Brooke Harker, see her website.

She will explore in greater depth a specific personal narrative or regional history connected with the memory archive she is creating for Points of Departure (between Spain and France).

As Fernández makes objects that re-perform the experiences and memories of interviewees to create a non-linear narrative of historical events, so do her lectures in the gallery re-create these experiences and memories as a form of oral history.

What: Reception

When: 5:00 pm
