ART CRITIC

That’s one of the most appealing features of “We Are Here / HereWe Are.” The serendipity of art encounters in public places is embedded in ordinary experience. Going into art museums and galleries is certainly gratifying, but these works thrive beyond institutions or the marketplace Certainly, some works can be taxing. Next to the driveway into an abandoned parking garage on a Sherman Oaks side street, Labkhand Olfatmanesh translates a conundrum about natural and social pressures that women encounter. Her installation features a dozen fluid-filled plastic bags, all tied up in a tree with yards of twine. A bag at the top, just out of reach, holds a baby doll, while another at the base is empty, flattened and held down on the ground by a rock. Within the installation’s plain reference to a tree of life, a subtle intimation of violence echoes in the context of abstention fromelevated motherhood. The tree, unsurprisingly, is an evergreen.



Projecting Possibilities,

A Year-Long Art Installation + Grant Program

In an effort to find comfort and connectedness through art, architecture, and design, Helms Bakery District in partnership with the Culver City Arts Foundation, is hosting and curating Projecting Possibilities, a video installation featuring a new artist each week for 52 weeks, an entire year of rotating digital art exhibitions to celebrate, nourish, support, and promote Los Angeles-based artists.

Baby Maybe 
PØST Kamikaze Show 

When you create somebody, you impose all the risks of life on them! BabyMaybe is an interactive project incorporating audio, photography, video, and installation that explores the personal and complex stories of women and their relationship to parenting across age and time. A experimental film will layer in fictionalized elements with a live soundtrack along with a courtyard installation incorporating The Word On the Street by artist Scott Froschaeur, projections.... and much more to explore. She has spent the last year personally experimenting with bringing these dolls into various settings, including international travel to Japan, Morocco, Cyprus and the UK and here in Los Angeles. This exhibition is the project's launch and initial public inquiry into these outward expressions of inner experiences and ideas across cultures and settings.
