Alexandre Dorriz: Public Sculpture 001-C

4800 Hollywood Boulevard
Mar 24, 11 AM - 4 PM — ends Apr 24, 2021
Alexandre Dorriz’s practice investigates power networks often unnoticed behind the facades of public works, researching politics behind public essentials such as space, land-use and water distribution. Dorriz’s Public Sculpture 001-C takes viewers through a journey of research, tallying and mapping the many means and measures involved in advancing an artist’s concept through production phases and public presentation, ultimately revealing the internal exchanges that determinately shape and shift the materialization and fabricated value structuring a commissioned public work. Dorriz’s research-based process unfurls bureaucratic affairs to issue a space for vital conversations in creative production, such as the monetization of creative labor, complicated discrepancies in funding, and the dynamics behind transactions such as donations and public acquisitions and their political substrates.

This virtual, conceptual work is available at lamag.org through April 22.
