In Downtown LA…

2A Gallery holds an artist talk and a closing reception for “Cardboard Revival,” a site-specific installation by Los Angeles artist Holly Tempo.

Sun 12.14 HollyTempo unnamedCardboard Revival represents a cadre of inharmonious interests. Sited in the upscale, developer-renovated San Fernando Building, which is located at the edge of Downtown LA’s skid row area, the space straddles the conflicting realities of urban life.

On the one hand, the structure — now filled with chic loft apartments — is a testament to efforts to revitalize Downtown LA; on the other, homeless advocates see the project as having taken the area’s affordable housing stock away from the people who need it the most.

Where: 2A Gallery, 400 S Main St #2A, LA 90013 (second floor of the San Fernando Building)
