Sep 17, 6 PM - 8 PM — ends Oct 15, 2022
Make Room Los Angeles is proud to present A Tangle of Limbs and Long Hair, a new series of sculptures and drawings by the Los Angeles-based artist Shana Hoehn. The title comes from a line in the artist’s autobiographical essay, Your Arch (2020), which reflects on growing up in the rural American South and the interplay of fantasy and political oppression as told through iconic images of arched backs. The selection of works in this exhibition continues to touch on themes of death, sexuality, and adolescence, set within humid landscapes such as swamps and ditches.

This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, as well as her first with Make Room. The opening reception will take place on September 17th from 6-8 p.m. PST, and the exhibition will remain on view until October 15th.
