Key Observation Point originates from the artist’s interest in the Landscape Scenic Quality Scale, a metric pioneered by a group of landscape architects and foresters in the late 20th century who sought to quantify beauty as a means of environmental protection. The scale’s system, language, and founding ideology are now embedded in the political process of legitimizing development projects of high impact. The Chiquita Canyon Landfill’s most recent Environmental Impact Report uses the Landscape Scenic Quality Scale to break down the site’s surrounding areas into seven key observation points. 

Vividness, intactness, and unity, are the three guiding principles through which a landscape’s beauty is understood as scenic fact. Using the report’s descriptions as a script for painting, Battin questions the forensic motives of transfiguring space into language and data, while exploring the pictorial traditions that inform our relationships with nature. 

Exhibition runs Aug 31 - Sept 28th. 
Opening reception is Aug 31 from 6pm - 10pm

LACA hours: 12pm-6pm Wednesday-Saturday

NAVEL: Making Kin (screening)

  • 1611 South Hope Street Los Angeles, CA, 90015 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

*The exhibit opens on Aug 26 with the screening of Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival by Fabrizio Terranova at 8:00pm (doors open at 7:30pm). The gallery hours for the show are Aug 27-30, 12-6pm. There will also be another screening of the film on Thursday, August 30, at 8:00pm (doors opens at 7:30pm). More information and a performance schedule are available on the NAVEL website at www.navel.la

In her book Staying with the Trouble, Donna Haraway presents a liquid world view in which all actors, human and non-human, are equal and move in and out of each other in correlating influences. 

Taking this proposition as starting point, Making Kin is an exhibition by the newly-formed NAVEL Collective, a group of artists, scientists, designers, writers, coders, and community organizers. It explores the ethics and meanings, forms and possibilities of kinship. 

The exhibit opens on Sunday, August 26 with the LA premiere of the documentary Donna Haraway: Story Telling for Earthly Survival by Fabrizio Terranova. An encore screening will take place on Thursday, August 30.

NAVEL is located at 1611 S Hope Street. The direct entrance to our space is located through a large black gate on Venice Blvd. Follow the posted signs to the gate and enter through the first door on the left just past the gate. 
If you're arriving via Lyft/Uber (which we highly recommend) then use 418 Venice blvd. as your destination and this will drop you off right in front of the black gate. 
If you're arriving via Metro, the closest station is the Pico Station on the Blue & Expo Lines. 
Self Parking is available in the parking lot directly underneath the I-10 freeway (if there is no attendant, do NOT use the lot directly connected to our building-you may be towed), cash only, payable to the United Valet Parking staff onsite or the payment box near the entrance. We recommend street parking (or Lyft/Uber/Public Transport!). 
If you need access to the elevator, call us at (347) 218-2221 or (360) 334-0139.

Cathy Immordino: Open Studio

Cathy Immordino: Open Studio

  • 2531 Silver Lake Terrace Los Angeles, CA, 90039 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Cathy Immordino’s photography is intellectual. And emotional. It captures the multidimensional quality of human consciousness by recombining its parts into new wholes -- literally by engineering fresh composite photographs derived from an array of her own original images. She does this in order to tell stories which themselves weave across generations, genres, continents, and mediums. “I do not stop at the making of the photograph,” she says. “I go on to print these unified montages of layers and fragments and then to apply processes, like cyanotype, photogravure, and 3-D reductive printmaking, to augment and express their conceptual intent.” Immordino further enhances her stylized lexicon with the addition of hand-restored, lavishly embellished vintage frames, often with shaped and convex glass, which in turn evokes the same set of references to family, sociology, and the human condition which are being expressed within the kaleidoscopic images. Thus the form and content each express the same message, making her process and story all the more familiar in its appeal and resonance.

This is an Open Studio. Please enter through the front door. This event will also take place Tuesday, August 28 11:30 AM - 2:30 PM

Alexis Alicette Bolter: Surrogate

Alexis Alicette Bolter: Surrogate

Surrogate is a curated afternoon of video, performance, and readings that explore replacements for the physical body. The complexities of our current situation politically, technologically, and metaphysically are reshaping the relationships between our bodies and alternative modes of representation. This shift is simultaneously reinforcing the materiality of the body through it’s absence while liberating the necessity for our physical being. This project allows each artist to investigate the idea of the surrogate through their practice as we come together to witness and hold space. More details can be found at www.alexisbolter.com/surrogate.

Pieter is accessible via the Metro Gold Line off the Lincoln Heights/Cypress Park stop. 

Entrance to studio is on the curved street corner next to the bench.

While a Wunderkammer can be a flashy exultation of wealth, one can see the hubris of  human consumption by following nearly any path off asphalt in the Mojave. Artist Karyl Newman has been mapping, photographing and collecting our consumptive detritus since 2013 as DEHSART.com (trashed backward). At the Antelope Valley Conservancy, as part of MaidenLA, a selection of objects from the archive will be on view along with images of their origin in the desert, research into their provenance and geo-locations illustrating how close illegal dumping may be to your homes, schools and places of work or worship. The exhibit will provide tools to report or recycle your own discarded discoveries in an effort to keep our desert clean.

Opening Saturday, August 25, 2018. September 8, 18 and October 6 and 20 or by appointment at (661) 943-9000 or avconservancy@yahoo.com.

Renée Reizman: The Barricade Reading Group

Renée Reizman: The Barricade Reading Group

The Barricade Reading Group is an ad-hoc assembly of Los Angeles residents interested in discussing the city's infrastructure and urban design. Using excerpts from "City of Quartz" by Mike Davis and "The Life and Death of American Cities" by Jane Jacobs as a starting point, the group will consider the city's role in the Los Angeles housing crisis, homelessness, and rapid gentrification. 

The reading group meets at the south entrance of the Ronald Reagan State Building, on the corner of 3rd and Main. The building houses the offices of many California officials, including an office for the Governor, the California Secretary of State, the California Franchise Tax Board, the Los Angeles Court of Appeals and the California Department of General Services. 

For eight years, a mysterious collection of barricades blocked off a portion of the sidewalk. The barricades grew sun-weathered as the revival of Downtown Los Angeles buffed out graffiti and pushed longtime residents on the fringes. The makeshift courtyard has finally disappeared; only 16 barricades were left in its wake. This is where the reading group meets, becoming the index of a bureaucratic mystery. B.Y.O.C.! (bring your own chair)!
