Public opening ‘Ellen Gallagher: Accidental Records’

  • Fri 3 November 2017
  • 6 pm

On Friday 3 November from 6 – 8 pm, join us for the public opening of ‘Ellen Gallagher: Accidental Records’, the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles. ‘Ellen Gallagher: Accidental Records’ presents new paintings, drawings, and film installations that continue the artist’s exploration of the complex histories of the Black Atlantic and ‘the afterlives of the Middle Passage.’ Widely associated with a resurgence in this diasporic critical space, Gallagher has developed her own genre of history painting which makes us question our geographies. The layered surfaces of her works become a kind of reckoning, evoking, in the artist’s words, ‘the way sailors mark their location at sea, determined by return.’ Plan your trip By Public Transport Ten-minute walk from Little Tokyo / Arts District Metro Station. Plan your trip using Metro Planner.
