Hand selected by curators Anne Ellegood and Erin Christovale, artists range from ages 29 to 97. While their backgrounds vary as much as the many neighborhoods of L.A., common themes emerge from their works. Artists touch on our current political climate, including Charles Long's “PaleTwinPureIntimacy2” (2016) (pictured above), which uses sculpture to investigate the far-reaching influence of the patriarchy. Others explore the many meanings attached to the body, such as Luchita Hurtado's works from the 1970s (pictured below) depicting her body in a variety of settings. The themes of community connections and L.A. itself are present, especially in an upcoming performance from Flora Wiegmann, which reflects experiencing recent Southern California wildfires. Site-specific works from painter Eamon Ore-Giron and MPA will make their debut at the biennial. Made in L.A. also includes live performances and a series of artist talks.
