As part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time series, the Library Foundation of Los Angeles & L.A. Public Library are developing a new project, titled No Prior Art, to open in 2024.
Our partnership with our sister department Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, also known as LAMAG, is a reflection of how art is intertwined with the library.
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.
Panteha Abareshi is an L.A. based artist whose work hones in on chronic illness and disability. Abareshi lives in a body that coexists with sickle cell zero beta thalassemia and their performance-based work reflects the complexities that come with experiencing a body with chronic illness.
Tristan Espinoza is an artist, programmer, and organizer who lives in Los Angeles. Their work has been exhibited internationally and in Chicago, Pasadena, Los Angeles, and Medford, NY.
