The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery Associates (LAMAG Associates) are pleased to announce an exhibition of filmmaker Patricia Valencia, the 2013 Lorser Feitelson and Helen Lundeberg Feitelson Arts Fellowship award-winner. Valencia’s films will be on view concurrent with the 2013 City of Los Angeles Individual Artists Fellowship (COLA) exhibition opening May 19 and running through July 7, 2013. For information visit lamag.org.

Valencia is currently researching and scouting location shots for two new films that mark a significant moment in her creative process and development as an artist. Both films address the cultural and architectural shifts of Los Angeles’ rapid transformative history.

“My practice as a filmmaker has primarily made use of Super-8mm film and digital video. The first film in the In Memorium series is an homage to the soon to be demolished 6th street bridge, which has been made iconic in the countless Hollywood films and car advertisements. I am interested in the bridge’s metaphorical role as both a division and a connector between East Los Angeles and Downtown.

“The second film will be part documentary, part memoir from the point of view of those displaced from the Bunker Hill area of Los Angeles. It will also be a search for the now lost ‘Hill X’, which was once a site for the ritual activities of Native Americans.

“Expanding upon visual structures from my recent films, these works will build up slow paced or static shots of crumbling infrastructures, and signs of past communities; each documenting the physical neglect of ‘progressive’ urban planning, regeneration, or enforced relocations. Both films will be addressing the cultural and architectural shifts of Los Angeles’ rapid transformative history, with a particular emphasis on issues of migration, displacement, and collective nostalgia.”

The $5,000 Award was conceived by the Feitelson Foundation and friends to encourage emerging artists by awarding grants supporting their creative potential. The Award is offered with the generous support of the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery Associates (LAMAGA) in partnership with the Feitelson Foundation.

This year’s Feitelson Arts Fellowship Award will be juried by Carol S.Eliel, curator of modern art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Pilar Tompkins Rivas, curator and director of residency programs at the 18th Street Arts Center; and artist Richard Wyatt, a former instructor of drawing and painting at UC Irvine, Otis Art Institute, and Watts Towers Art Center and producer of art for public and corporate spaces.
