Join de LaB for a morning of contemporary art, architecture and... cannibalism? We're headed to Monterey Park for a private tour of the MexiCali Biennial, an ambitious exhibition featuring 33 artists from Mexico and California. The theme of this biennial is—yes—cannibalism, resulting in provocative pieces exploring issues of consumption and culture from emerging voices on both sides of the border. And the show itself is housed in the Vincent Price Art Museum (yes, that Vincent Price), a stunning new building designed by Arquitectonica.
We'll take a private tour of the MexiCali Biennial with co-curator Ed Gomez, see the building that's become a landmark for this community, and hear from the museum staff about why the legendary actor decided to bring his vast collection of art to East Los Angeles College.
