“Working Title: 10,020,000” explores the Los Angeles region as a muse for six artists. While some artists give us direct reflections of the area, others show us slices of the city through recontextualization of form, objects and imagery. Photographic works from Judy Fiskin and John Humble show a Los Angeles that was—and in many ways, still is—while Katie Shapiro’s photographs present human interventions that try to preserve the now. Kaz Oshiro and Becky Kolsrud reflect on our surroundings through paintings that disorient us by reframing our vision through their work. And Elonda Billera Norris’ site-specific work gives us a peek into a view that is one in 10,020,000.
