> DESCRIPTION

Maria Nordman began working on city streets, in neighborhoods, and in public parks beginning in 1967. Her work, which emphasizes site and time specificity, has taken many forms, including musical interventions, interperformances, architectural construction, and language.

Along with works for urban and outdoor environments, Nordman creates museum projects which have been presented in the United States, Europe, and Asia. She has been featured in such exhibitions as the Venice Biennale, Documenta, and Carnegie International. Recent solo shows include Mamco, Geneva, Switzerland; Serralves Museum, Porto, Portugal; and Centre d’Art Santa Mònica, Barcelona, Spain. In 2006 Nordman’s Temple & Alameda was shown cooperatively, and synchronously, at MOCA, Los Angeles and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, which this fall will present Filmroom Smoke (1967–Present) as part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980, a series of exhibitions appearing at more than 60 cultural institutions across Southern California.

The event is free and open to the public.
