Shizu Saldamando: L.A. Intersections

4757 York Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90042
Feb 06, 6 PM - 8 PM — ends Apr 17, 2020
Join us for the opening reception for the solo exhibition of Shizu Saldamando, Wanlass Artist-in-Residence.

Visualizing the scope of L.A. Latinx subcultural communities, L.A. Intersections presents a selection of works by Los Angeles-based artist Shizu Saldamando that reimagines alternative Chicanx and Indigenous identities through portraiture and video-based work. The exhibition's multimedia and cross-generational composition offers both a critique of traditional figures in art and a celebration of in-between spaces and the bodies that inhabit them.
