Curated by Mike Kelley, “This largely forgotten experiment is but one of several in California that reflects the region as a haven for visionary culture that persists to this day. Shangri-LA investigates this legacy, the amnesia of progress and current notions of Utopia. The exhibition combines installation, art, presentations and sound by a current generation who thrive in the shadow of the pioneers of independent thought. Shangri-LA is on display from August 17 through September 1.”
The show features BITNB artists, Owl Eyes, Josh Slater, and Sumi Ink Club! Make sure you guys check it out-
The opening reception is tonight from 7-10pm @ Synchronicity Space (713 N. Heliotrope, Los Angeles, CA 90029)
