This exhibition is presented through support from the California Natural Resources Agency through the Museum Grant Program under the California Cultural and Historical Endowment.

Drawing on dreams, memories, and the spaces in between, the works in Notions of Place disintegrate commonly held social views that have acted as fences around our homes. Each of the artists in the exhibition articulate different facets of what we call place. Curated by Lauren Kasmer, Notions of Place includes works by Hilary Baker, Natalie M. Godinez, Kio Griffith, Flora Kao, Lauren Kasmer, LaRissa Rogers, Jenny Yurshansky, and HK Zamani.

The Notions of Place installation is an invitation to inhabit a space within the gallery.  Lauren Kasmer activates her installation by inviting gallery visitors to adorn themselves in her upcycled photographic and vintage remnant wearables, and partake in foods that reflect her birthplace and heritage, on Saturday June 3rd, 7-8pm, during the soundpedro2023 MINGLE On-Site event. 

The galleries also feature Homesĭtē, an ongoing participatory work by Joyce Dallal and Lauren Kasmer. Consisting of a series of structures emblematic of Los Angeles landscape and architecture, the installation reflects on the city as both home and origin.
