possible worlds exhibit: los angeles

photo by: lavocado What: Possible Worlds: Mario Ybarra Jr., Karla Diaz, and Slanguage Studio Select from the Permanent Collections
Where: LACMA, Ahmanson Building, Level 2
When: now thru September 25

In collaboration with LACMA and the Watts House Project, an artist-driven urban revitalization project centered around the historic Watts Towers, Ybarra, Diaz, and Slanguage, the artist’s team of collaborators, participated in a residency at the home of longtime residents of Watts, the Garcia family.

Featuring assemblage, folk art, vernacular graphics, images of the Watts Towers and art from the LACMA collection selected by the artist which connect the art works from the Watts site to the LACMA campus.

The core of the exhibition takes its point of reference from the legacy of Simon Rodia, local folk artist and creator of the Watts Towers, and the impulse to create alternative or possible worlds out of unconventional materials and unorthodox impulses.
