DESCRIPTION

The City of Angels offers fertile inspiration to many Los Angeles-based visual artists. The contemporary artists whose works constitute this exhibit take the city as both their subject and their setting. Their works serve as ruminations on our city’s mixed lineage of beauty and brutality as well as the cultural diversity, spectacular artifice and historical erasure that have come to define it. YOU ARE HERE aims to provide international travelers a unique glimpse at Los Angeles as both a creative think tank and an international cultural epicenter. Viewers will gain new insight into the city’s complex and multivalent identity as they view cutting-edge works by some of its most accomplished artists of color:
Sandra de la Loza, Ricardo Duffy, Clement Hanami, Sandra Low, Michael Massenburg, and Steve Wong

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
