More PST: LA/LA Exhibitions at the Claremont Colleges and Beyond

There are plenty of other organizations located near Scripps College (and a bit farther afield) that are participating in or enriching the Getty’s LA/LA initiative. A number of those are listed below. In addition, the weekend of Nov. 18-19 is designated as the Inland Cities Regional Weekend. Along with the Williamson Gallery, many of the organizations in the Inland Cities area that are participating in the Getty initiative are holding special events that weekend. More information on some of those special events is available below.

At the Colleges:

Pitzer College Art Galleries
Juan Downey: Radiant Nature
From the late 1960s until the mid-1970s, Juan Downey (b. Chile, 1940; d. New York, 1993) pioneered interactive, participatory artworks that helped shape his better-known multichannel video installations such as Video Trans Americas (1973–76) and The Thinking Eye (1974–89). The works that make up Downey’s Electronic Sculptures (1967–71); Happenings and Performances (1968­–75); and Life Cycle Installations (1970­–73) take radically different forms, but they share similar strategies; conceived as vehicles for interactivity, they are intended to be played with or participated in rather than passively observed.
Co-curated by Robert Crouch and Ciara Ennis

Millard Sheets Art Center: Judithe Hernández and Patssi Valdez: One Path Two Journeys
Hernández is well-known for her work as a muralist in LA between 1969 and 1982, and is credited with creating some of the earliest feminist work about women’s labor and migrants. Valdez became known for her avant-garde performance art, installations and photography. Though politically aligned with their male counterparts during this time of civil disobedience, their work also questioned issues of inequality specific to Chicana women, such as their assigned role in the home. Through January 28, 2018.
FMI: One Path, Two Journeys

Riverside Art Museum
Myth and Mirage focuses on the Inland Southern California SCR landscape with its rich stylistic details and exoticized architectural forms, and how mythmakers from the 1880s through the 1930s fabricated a marketable past that was European and civilized to sell the mirage of wealth and paradise to Anglo settlers.  Through January 28, 2018.
FMI: Myth and Mirage

While the brothers’ work is well-known in Mexico, the exhibition, Carved Narrative: Los Hermanos Chávez Morado, is the first to display paintings by José and sculpture by Tomás together outside their homeland.

UCR ARTSblock in Riverside: Mundos Alternos: Art and Science Fiction in the Americas includes international artists from across the Americas to test science fiction’s genre to imagine utopian and dystopian realities. “We always imagine indigenous people being part of our past,” said Beatriz Cortez, an El Salvador-born artist. “I wanted to imagine indigenous people as part of our future.”
