Currently in Angels Gate Cultural Center’s galleries are Todo en ti fue naufragio, a group exhibition curated by VOLUME member Jared Baxter, and On the Brink, a show curated by Marcia Moore featuring artists Angel King and Everett Babcock. Todo en ti fue naufragio responds to Angels Gate Cultural Center’s proximity to the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and features works by Sarah Cain, Patricia Fernández, Liz Glynn, Amy Howden-Chapman, Allison Keating, Olga Koumoundouros, Karen Lofgren, Matana Roberts, and The Distance Plan with Oliver Kellhammer, Greg Lindquist, K. Flint, and Gabriela Salazar. On the Brink showcases two up and coming artists and their exploration through different artistic media.
Special programming is planned as part of these exhibitions which run through September 21st.
- On Saturday August 3rd, from 12pm to 4pm, the public is invited to carve into the evolving wood-cut surface of Olga Koumoundouros’s work, a sextant for some people’s neighborhood convening, and pull prints from the hand-crafted birch table rigged with silk wings, in this printmaking workshop.
- On Saturday, August 24th, from 12pm to 4pm, the Todo en ti fue naufragio exhibition will host a viewing of On Death, video footage of a one-night-only performance reflecting on the existential question “why stay alive?” The event launches the limited edition release of Allison Keating’s On Death Paper Tape, prints of the video documentation consisting of over 38,000 frames laid out over 1,107 pages.
- In the downstairs gallery, On the Brink will present a family friendly workshop “MakingMeaning: Make Something From Nothing” September 7th from 9am-12pm. Using basic art supplies and everyday repurposed goods curator Marcia Moore and artist Angel King will teach visitors fun new ways to create art. Space is limited; email Sara@angelsgateart.org to sign up.
- On Saturday September 14th from 1pm to 2pm curator Jared Baxter will take visitors through Todo en ti fue naufragio for a more in depth conversation about the art and the narrative that runs through his curated show.
All programs are free of charge.
