Curated by Jo Lauria, the exhibition features more than ninety of the artist’s finest pieces—dramatic, highly decorated vessels and sculptures that have never before been the focus of a major exhibition or publication.

  • Opening Reception for Ralph Bacerra: Exquisite Beauty

Curricular Connections: Inside the Quad

Inside the Quad

Freeway Studies #2: Inside the Quad  |  April 12 — July 27, 2014

Freeway Studies is a multi-year, contemporary art-focused curatorial project organized by Meg Linton, Director of Galleries and Exhibitions, with the assistance of Jeseca Dawson, 2012-2014 Curatorial Fellow, at the Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art and Design. Freeway Studies #2: Inside the Quad features the work of 31 contemporary artists whose studios are located within the borders of the I-405, 110, 10, and 105 freeways in Los Angeles. Over a six-month period Meg Linton and Jeseca Dawson visited nearly 100 artists working (and often living) in the designated area and each visit is documented on the project blog.
