All of the artists involved in “Performing Economies” explore various strategies of participation, collaboration and community engagement in order to create alternative economies of activism and intimacy.
The exhibition presents visual artwork by Los Angeles based artists and collaborations, including CamLab (Anna Mayer and Jemima Wyman), Liz Glynn, Marc Herbst, Ahsley Hunt and Taisha Paggett, Elana Mann, and Vincent Ramos.
Accompanying the exhibit will be a series of weekly programs led by Los Angeles-based artists and art collectives that relate to the gallery exhibition. These will include events by ArtSpa, Artists for Social Justice, John Burtle and John Barlog, Dorit Cypis and Foreign Exchanges and the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest.
