Members: Member Preview: A Universal History of Infamy

10 am | Sat, August 19, 2017
BCAM, Level 2

Members see it first. Members see it free. 

Referencing the title of a genre-bending collection of stories by Jorge Luis Borges, A Universal History of Infamy uses multiple venues across Los Angeles to present new works by more than 15 boundary-defying artists and collectives. Developed for the most part through residencies at the 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica, the works represent artists who live and practice in several countries; adopt methods from disciplines such as anthropology, theater, and linguistics; mingle research with visual art; and work across a range of media, from installation and sculpture to performance and video. 

Please note: there are two additional Member Previews for this exhibition (August 17–18). 

This exhibition is included in general admission, which is always free for members.
