Ours is a City of Writers exhibition on view from February 5 thru March 26, 2017
The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) and Barnsdall Art Park Foundation proudly announce the exhibition, Ours is a City of Writers at Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG) at Barnsdall Park (4800 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90065). On view from February 5 through March 26, 2017—with LAMAG’s visionary curator Erin Christovale at the helm—in consultation with guest curators Suzanne Hudson, Simon Leung, and James Nisbet—Ours is a City of Writers explores new approaches to writing, which are evidenced across the contemporary art world—particularly here in Los Angeles! Invited writers have selected artists to collaborate with and vice versa. Each collaboration has led to a new piece of writing, artwork, performance, lecture, or program, exhibited in the gallery and staged as live events. Among the nearly 60 artists and writers featured in the show are the multi-disciplinary projects of Karon Davis, Scott Benzel, Susan Silton, and Young Joon Kwak. http://www.lamag.org.
