Friday, September 20, 2013 to Friday, December 6, 2013

Event Date Details: 

OPENING RECEPTION: October 3, 5:00-8:00 pm

POP brings together a selection of works that demonstrate the politically charged nature of real and imagined sites.  While some are overtly polemical, all of the works take on a loaded quality when viewed through the lens of environmental uncertainty or city planning techniques. Artists include: Kim Abeles, Isabella Kirkland, Barrie Mottishaw, Enoc Perez, Fran Siegel and LA Fine Arts Squad, and others.
