ARCHIVE MACHINESOnline July 30 – November 1, 2020
While LAMAG’s physical gallery remains closed due to COVID-19, we are amplifying our commitment to our mission to respond to the diversity of human experiences that shape Los Angeles. Though meeting the moment online, LAMAG maintains its essential functions established by its 60 years precedent of fostering a space for local artists to address social critique and discourse with contemporary matters. With this in mind, LAMAG has shifted this year’s juried exhibition, ARCHIVE MACHINES, to an interactive web format inviting Los Angeles artists and visitors to engage with the activities of archives. ARCHIVE MACHINES brings together jury selected artists whose works explore the ways in which archival structures and materials are interpreted, appropriated, and interrogated.
The juried exhibition brings together 44 artists selected by a jury comprising of Olivian Cha, Curator and Collections Manager, Corita Art Center, Los Angeles; Kerstin Erdmann, Director & Partner, Galería OMR, Mexico City; and Rita Gonzalez, Terri and Michael Smooke Curator and Department Head Contemporary Art, LACMA, Los Angeles.
