Artist Talk: Melvino Garretti

Los Angeles, CA
Jun 15, 5 PM - 7 PM — ends Jun 15, 2021
Join LA-based artist Melvino Garretti for a conversation with Art + Practice’s Public Programs and Exhibitions Manager Joshua Oduga on June 15, 2021. Oduga and Garretti will explore specific works from the artist practice, discuss the artist’s techniques and inspirations, as well as engage in a conversation around the elements of collaboration, education and community that have informed Garetti’s work. This program is organized as part of A+P’s Spring 2021 Program Series.

Garretti is a sculptor working in LA since the mid-1960’s. Garretti was among the first residents of the Studio Watts workshop, a pioneering non-profit serving artists in South LA. Garretti continues to make new work in LA and exhibit work frequently, including his recent solo exhibition Vino’s Carnival of Ceramic Curiosities, or the Circuitous Path to Calamity (2021) at Parker Gallery.
