Christina Villamor "MIA in LA"

  • Santa Fe Art Colony 2415 South Santa Fe Avenue Unit 3 Los Angeles, CA, 90058 United States (map)

Taking varied inspiration from Quinceañeras, Hurricane Andrew, and Santeria, this body of work is inspired by growing up in Miami in the 1980s & 90s.  My work exaggerates and fictionalizes the city's past culture.  As the first expected city to cause massive displacement due to climate change, I also imagine a Miami in the science fiction-inspired future:  as relics and fossils. Facing its own climate change-induced challenges, presenting this project in Los Angeles, I imagine a dialogue between both coastal cities.

Directions from the 10: 
-Take Santa Fe exit and head South on Santa Fe   
-Continue on Santa Fe over the bridge at 15th street   
-Make a your first right after the bridge onto 25th
-The Entrance is on 25th a block down on the right
-Follow signs for SFAC/Suns for parking
-Look for the 2415 building on the right. 
-Suite 3
