The exhibition Found in Translation: Design in California and Mexico, 1915–1985 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) illustrates how stylistic design trends flowed both north and south, where they were reinterpreted and reshaped into hybrid cultural forms. In conjunction with the exhibition, LACMA will be hosting a day-long symposium on the contemporary craft of both locales.
In the morning, designers Sami Hayek, Christina Kim, Marisol Centeno, and Laura Noriega will discuss their collaborations with indigenous artisans in Oaxaca and Jalisco. In the afternoon, artists Gerardo Monterrubio, Consuelo Jimenez Underwood, and Tanya Aguiñiga will talk about how their work explores issues of gender, politics, and identity through the incorporation of craft techniques and materials — Monterrubio through ceramics, and Aguiñiga and Jimenez Underwood through fiber art. Following the symposium, there will be a closing reception at the Craft in America Center for Mano-Made, a series of three solo shows culminating with Jimenez Underwood’s large-scale textile depiction of a geographical border, which wraps around the Center itself. To attend the reception, please RSVP.
When: Saturday, January 20, 10am–3pm
Where: Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Bing Theater (5905 Wilshire Boulevard., Mid-Wilshire, Los Angeles)
