Calendar

Graduate Public Practice presented an exhibition of work by graduates, A Mess and a Pleasure: Practicing in Public at ForYourArtForYourArt, 6020 Wilshire Blvd, L.A. 90036 through May 11, 2012.

The work represents translations from art projects within varied geographies of Los Angeles, and explore the relationship between spaces of communities and spaces of art in a wide range of media and topics. The common impulse concerns envisioning an art practice that reaches outside of the gallery to comment upon, or engage with, new public(s) for art.

Public events in conjunction with this exhibition included a myth-making workshop, a dream group, a workshop on envisioning new uses for alleys, a conversation and art critique by and with Chinese international students, a Highway 99 pit stop video screening, and a panel discussion on social practice and the creative economy with President Samuel Hoi and Bettina Korek, Founder of ForYourArt

ForYourArt produces and hosts activities at 6020 Wilshire Blvd. to promote engagement with art, Los Angeles, and the Miracle Mile as part of its broad mission to create content to frame and support the activities of artists, curators, and institutions.
