Art + Inspiration

4/29 @ 12pm: Shana Nys Dambrot, Arts Editor at L.A. Weekly, will be in conversation with artists Amir Fallah, Alexandra Grant, Bettina Hubby and Gregory Siff.

RSVP Link:  https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_J_A4Fkh8Tkag0WwuG9HCqQ

Event Description: Shana Nys Dambrot, Arts Editor at L.A. Weekly, will be in conversation with artists Amir Fallah, Alexandra Grant, Bettina Hubby and Gregory Siff. Each of these artists draws references from history, memory and popular culture in exciting, diverse ways in their works — from elements of personal and literary text and a celebration of life’s small details, to larger themes of knowledge, love and enlightenment. Grant’s meditations on chaos and control, Fallah’s interest in systems of becoming one’s self, Hubby’s witty mindfulness in community culture, and Siff’s emotional poetry of Americana all speak to the charms and frights of human experience.

4/30 @ 1pm: Join arts manager, writer, and the founder of Dominique Gallery, Dominique Clayton, for a conversation with first-time Venice Art Walk participating artists Hasef, Alicia Piller and Trotter.

Art + Materiality
