You are invited to 18th Street Arts Center to meet our international artists-in-residence for our Summer Champagne Social!
Discover new contemporary artwork and chat with local and visiting artists from around the globe. Get to know our artists over a glass of champagne or a mimosa!
This summer's event features artists-in-residence from around the world who will share their work processes with you, with docent-led tours scheduled hourly.
Here are just some of the many highlights:
* Los Angeles-based artist and our Artist Lab Resident Shana Lutker will present Scenes from Chapter Four, the latest in her series of research-based artworks investigating Surrealist fistfights. Come for champagne and join a reception for the artist from 11-2pm.
* Have a discussion with curator-in-residence William Wells from the Townhouse Gallery in Cairo.
* See the exhibition Light Studies from New York-based Taiwanese artist Hao Ni in our Atrium Gallery.
* The Alternate/Radical Pedagogies group will conduct a purposeful and inquisitive conversation about pedagogy, and a mapping of sites of learning in Los Angeles. During the event, groups and attendees will learn of and from each other. Learn more: http://soradpedlosangeles.blogspot.com/
* 18th Street Arts Center staff will present about our own mapping project, collecting and mapping significant cultural and historical information in the 90404. You can also learn how to get involved!
