Showcasing new work by artists selected for a yearlong collaboration with Los Angeles arts organization Clockshop, Beside the Edge of the World marks the fourth year of The Huntington’s /five initiative.
Artists participating in this year’s project are Nina Katchadourian, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, and Rosten Woo, and writers Dana Johnson and Robin Coste Lewis, poet laureate for the city of Los Angeles. Each participant has created work based on research in The Huntington’s collections investigating ideas of perfection and utopia using Thomas More’s satirical work Utopia (1516) as a starting point. Includes video, poetry, and more in the gallery setting, as well as an audio tour and a sculpture installation in the gardens.
