18th Street Arts Center presents two new exhibitions on each of its Santa Monica campuses: Beatriz Cortez and Kang Seung Lee’s Becoming Atmosphere and Patty Chang’s Milk Debt.
LA-based artists Beatriz Cortez and Kang Seung Lee consider the atmosphere as the core of cosmic becoming, a living entity that surrounds everything we know. Becoming Atmosphere, their latest exhibition at 18th Street’s Airport Gallery (3026 Airport Avenue, Santa Monica), focuses on aspects of disappearance, transformation, and becoming. The exhibition may be viewed in-person by appointment only and via its online website from October 26, 2020, until February 5, 2021.
At 5pm on October 30, Beatriz Cortez and Kang Seung Lee will discuss their collaboration in a free Artist Talk on Zoom, which will be moderated by Associate Curator Frida Cano. Registration is required.
LA-based artist Patty Chang will present a new solo exhibition in the 18th Street Olympic Campus Main Gallery (1639 18th Street, Santa Monica), on view from October 26, 2020, through January 22, 2021. With a new five-channel film featuring nine performers and lists of fears submitted by Angelenos across the region, Chang explores our debt to those who came before us, what it means to perform empathetic acts, and how we can make visible the hidden fears we share in this dark time. The exhibition may be viewed by appointment only and via its online website.
Patty Chang and water scholar Astrida Neimanis will host a free Opening Panel Discussion at 3pm on October 22 via Zoom. A 48-hour screening of Chang’s film begins on October 21 at 3pm and runs through October 23 at 3pm; viewers can watch the film before or after the talk. To attend the screening, viewers must also register for the discussion on Zoom.
