Notions of Place
Notions of Place is an art installation by Lauren Kasmer,
and a title of group exhibition curated by Lauren Kasmer
with works by Hilary Baker, Joyce Dallal, Natalie M. Godinez, Kio Griffith, Flora Kao, Lauren Kasmer, LaRissa Rogers, Jenny Yurshansky, and HK Zamani.
Drawing on dreams, memories, and the spaces in between, the works in Notions of Place disintegrate commonly held social views that have acted as fences around our homes. Artists in the exhibition articulate different facets of what we call place. Place can be a refuge, a home holding our values and dreams in safe harbor. It can also be defined by a border or a wall holding us back from a new life. In ways that are both spiritual and physical, Notions of Place explores the contours of the artist’s experience of the world.
Notions of Place is hosted by Angels Gate Cultural Center, with support from the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles, the Pasadena Art Alliance, and California Natural Resources Agency for the Museum Grant Program, under the California Cultural and Historical Endowment.
