LAMAGLearnArtist Talk and Performance
Friday, March 5 at 1 PM PST
To celebrate the opening of membrane tensions, exhibition artist Maru Garcia led a virtual talk and performance.
Transforming the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery into an active laboratory, membrane tensions featured a constellation of new, site-specific works composed of cellulose. Garcia’s use of cellulose (produced and harvested on-site at the Gallery) alluded to the beginning of life where the delineation between internal and external was essential for life forms to first emerge. In using and placing cellulose as the medial, membrane tensions proposed future exchanges of building a sustainable culture.
