NAVEL: Making Kin (screening)

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

*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

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.
