#SYNCHRONICITY - The Social Territories of a Warming World
Exhibition at 18th Street’s Airport Gallery, August 12 - September 14
The exhibition in 18th Street’s Airport Gallery explores concepts of mobility and spatial justice and is composed of a series of artworks and proposals generated from The Winter Office’s ongoing artistic research into warming world design. Over six months from April to September 2019, our group has focused on cultural organizations and their urban environment/infrastructure within the Los Angeles Metro area and the City of Santa Monica to ask, how much of the city can such organizations transform or develop (beyond climate adaptation), in collaboration with the communities they serve and within the social fabric that surrounds them? The installation, created in dialogue with a concurrent presentation by the collective at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, examines collectivized strategies toward a just, resilient, and pluralistic city that would foster the uses, styles, and forms of mobility that diversify access to a landscape embedded with multiple and varied arts organizations.
