The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) and the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG) present a series of four solo exhibitions. Each open on a different date, but all will run thru April 22, 2021.
The virtual exhibitions feature newly commissioned work by Los Angeles artists Panteha Abareshi, Alexandre Dorriz, Tristan Espinoza, and Maru Garcia. These series of exhibitions reimagine the role of the gallery experience for our current times by presenting research-based artists outside of the white box. Each respective exhibition engages a variety of interdisciplinary themes, with Tristan Espinoza’s activation of machine learning; Panteha Abareshi’s relationship to epidemiology; Maru Garcia’s creative approach to experimentation, cellular evolution, and collaboration; and Alexandre Dorriz’s investigative research into the mechanics of transactions, public policy, and water rights.
Tristan Espinoza: Index, Interiors, January 14 — April 22, 2021
Panteha Abareshi: Tender Calamities, February 4 — April 22, 2021
Maru Garcia: membrane tensions, March 4 — April 22, 2021
Alexandre Dorriz: Public Sculpture 001-C, March 18 — April 22, 2021
The online exhibitions will launch a format distinct from LAMAG’s typical web content. The virtual exhibition design will display artworks and initiate visitor interaction opportunities through response prompts with additional engagement through a free downloadable educator, family and gallery guides, and a chance to further connect by attending LAMAG’s virtual programming events.
