LA In Dialogue Venice Arts, Band of Vices

LA In Dialogue 

The Getty Museum has partnered with four local nonprofits, therefore inspiring these photographers. The Getty’s current exhibition, Dawoud Bey and Carrie Mae Weems’ In Dialogue has inspired these photographers. Over several months the Black Image Center (Culver City), Inner-City Arts (Downtown), LA Commons (Leimert Park & South LA), and Venice Arts (Venice Beach) worked closely with over sixty artists to create the resulting works on view. These photographers have come together from different neighborhoods, diverse backgrounds, and at various levels of their artistic experience. The result is meaningful work that speaks to and about their communities. This creative collaboration was influenced by Dawoud Bey and Carrie Mae Weems, and has inspired a new generation of socially committed artists.

Additional Info

In addition, the exhibition includes works by the Getty Unshuttered program. These teen photographers from across the city collectively explore the theme of Taking a Moment.

Getty Museum conceived LA: In Dialogue. It is produced by The Culture List Inc., and curated by Terrell Tilford at Band of Vices. This project was championed by the many teaching artists and administrators at Black Image Center, LA Commons, Venice Arts, and Inner-City Arts. This project was made possible with major support from Jordan Schnitzer and The Harold & Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation, generous support from Megan and Peter Chernin, and additional support from Jan and Trish de Bont. Getty Unshuttered is generously funded by the Genesis Inspiration Foundation.
