You Are Here: California Photography Now

(Los Angeles, CA—April 27, 2023) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) presents You Are Here: California Photography Now, an exhibition featuring a range of concepts and approaches to visualizing California. On view in the exhibition are photographs that speak to specific aspects of the region, from entertainment and technology to marijuana dispensaries and flea markets. The 35 artworks in You Are Here expand the definition of photography and showcase the continued impact of experimental photography produced in California. Drawn from LACMA’s permanent collection, the contemporary lens-based artists featured in this exhibition include Laura Aguilar, Jennifer Bolande, Fallen Fruit, Christina Fernandez, Anthony Lepore, and others. Each photographer attempts to blur, redefine, or break down the boundaries of established tropes that have, for so long, defined California.

This exhibition is curated by Eve Schillo, Associate Curator, the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department, LACMA.

LACMA is pleased to present an exhibition for the first time at the LA County Fair’s Millard Sheets Art Center, a gallery space dedicated to promoting the rich and diverse cultures that lie within L.A. County and Southern California. The L.A. County Fair runs May 5–29. For more information on the Fair, visit Access to the exhibition is free with fair admission.
