LA MIRADA, CALIF. — “LA Sees Itself,” a new major art exhibit produced in collaboration with Los Angeles-based curator, Carl Berg, is open now through December 1, 2023 at Biola University.
The multi-part exhibition and catalog publication was curated and produced by Biola art students with Berg, curator and director of PRJCTLA. Hosted in the Earl & Virginia Green Art Gallery and Bardwell Project Space, the exhibit brings together a collection of ways to see Los Angeles.
Throughout the 2022-23 academic year, a class of students joined Berg to explore the various ways artists have seen and shared their visions of Los Angeles and its surrounding areas. Working with the lens of overlapping ecosystems that make up this complex region — its iconic landscapes of mountains, deserts and beaches, the architecture and populations of LA’s urban core, surrounded by the diffuse networks of suburban sprawl, and the industries and innovations of the cultural forces (entertainment, automotive, aerospace, astronomical, and more) that shape its social fabric, the exhibit showcases various viewpoints of LA.
