Opening Reception: November 18, 2017, 6-9 PM

Exhibition dates: November 18, 2017 - January 12, 2018

Brand Library & Art Center IN GLENDALE, CALIFORNIA

 

organized by Joey Forsyte, Lawrence Gipe and Alex Kritselis, FEATURING the work of 21 Los Angeles-based artists whose engagement with political topics is an integral part of their practices.

Throughout history, artists have been activists - digging beneath the surface, posing the critical questions, challenging authority and calling the public to action. In today’s contentious climate, LA artists are responding to this new urgency, seeking to tell their truth in an era when truth is becoming a precious commodity.

ONE YEAR: The Art of Politics in Los Angeles is a group exhibition of 21 Los Angeles-based artists.  Each engages with political topics that frame our turbulent era as an integral part of their practices.  The exhibition presents a multiplicity of voices, constructing a narrative from a wide range of disciplines including video, painting, drawing, fiber arts, ceramics, mixed media and photography.

Diverse in culture, identity and age, the artists selected for ONE YEAR: The Art of Politics in Los Angeles have been addressing issues like immigration policy, race, gender discrimination, and environmental concerns well before the current administration. The artists of ONE YEAR: The Art of Politics in Los Angeles are united in their desire to inspire awareness, as well as manifest their deep political convictions through their art.
