g727 is pleased to announce What Remains of a Building..., organized by Ken Ehrlich and Brandon
LaBelle. This exhibition is the third installment of the Surface Tension series, which generates
collaborative projects and publications addressing site-based art practices and questions related to the built environment. Previous Surface Tension exhibitions were presented in Curitiba, Brazil (2006) and Copenhagen, Denmark (2007). What Remains of a Building… asks each participating artist to focus on a specific built space, including the recent new headquarters of the LAPD, a domestic space in downtown, Hollywood motels, and the legendary jazz club, the Cadillac Café. Each site provides a generative platform for examining particular histories, cultures, and politics intertwined within the city of LA. Spatial interventions and inquiry, memory tracing and re-enactments, performative gestures and staged settings are featured as strategies to query
what a building is and what it may become.
