For the past few months, we have highlighted four artists whose works have been exhibited at Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, also known as LAMAG.
Maru García is a Mexican artist who is now based in Los Angeles. Her work merges the fields of art, science, and technology. She often uses organic, living material in her artworks to explore biological processes and the ability of living creatures (including humans) to restore polluted sites.
Alexandre Dorriz’s research-based work informs the viewer of a data-driven concept accompanied with a visual format that presents data as entities tied to economic systems with or without links to social or political intersections.
