Los Angeles — ARTifice, of the Art Institute of California-Hollywood, is pleased to present their annual gallery exhibition, this year entitled Interstates. Curated by faculty advisor Miah Jeffra and Marie Kinnell, the exhibition features works by a diverse group of writers and artists, professionals and students, focused on creating a collective portrait of the mythological city in which they all live.
Utilizing multiple voices, Interstates attempts to examine the relationship between textual and visual representations of the Los Angeles experience. The participating writers have composed portraits of their particular LA, with no restrictions on form or content. Visual responses to the literature were then created by the artists in their various chosen medium. Layer upon layer, these collected ‘portraits’ aim to help “Los Angeles find a ritual to join its fragments” – Jim Morrison.
TempoRoyale is located at 2619 Wilshire Boulevard, in the Wilshire Royale building. Gallery viewings are by appointment. For more information, please contact Miah Jeffra at 323.350.9176, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
