Culver City’s Wende Museum is dedicated to archiving and exhibiting Cold War-era objects and artifacts from former Soviet Bloc nations, and boasts an impressive collection of over 100,000 items. Given the parallels between the current US administration and totalitarian regimes of the past, the museum seems like an ideal place to examine troubling and instructive historical precedents. “Art – Past – Present” is a new discussions series beginning tomorrow at the Wende that aims to “consider what it means to make art in times of irreconcilable alternative truths.” The first two artists participating will be Farrah Karapetian — whose cameraless photographs record physical encounters rather than purely retinal phenomena — and Christopher Wyrick — a painter whose recent work includes large-scale murals around Los Angeles.
When: Thursday, March 16, 3–5pm (free, RSVP recommended)
Where: Wende Museum(5741 Buckingham Parkway, Suite E, Culver City, California)
