In Culver City…

Join Arcana Books for cocktails today to celebrate the publication of Randi Malkin Steinberger’s Congo Mission Box and preview the public unveiling of her “Tented For Termites installation!

Sun-April26-ArcanaIn 2011, Venice-based photographer Randi Malkin Steinberger produced the exquisite Boetti by Afghan People; a book based on her experience in the early nineties documenting the production of works of art designed by the noted late Italian conceptual practitioner Alighiero Boetti that were embroidered by Afghan women in refugee camps in Peshawar, Pakistan.

Over the past several years she has turned her keen eye to those tented buildings we pass seemingly every day on our way to here or there. Though conspicuously clad in brightly-striped fumigation shrouds, their ubiquitousness serves as a barometer of the boom and bust cycles of the local residential real estate market that has rendered them all but invisible. Her vivid color images provide a typology of these ephemeral, quintessentially Southern Californian structures.
