Event Navigation

To begin, a structure made of scaffolding and wood that reorganizes and reshapes the internal space of Human Resources. In the course of this reshaping, we hold an exhibition that serves to model dynamic notions of connection, difference, and community, and to reflect the conscious self-creating of a group process.

Inspired by notions of empathy and intersubjectivity in the Netflix original series (now cancelled) Sense8, a cluster was created by Olga Koumoundouros: John Booortle, von curtis, Alexander Kroll, Francesca Lalanne, Kristy Lovich, Ofelia Marquez, and Jennifer Moon. Brought together to be part of this material and psychic experiment, this group of artists use a diverse set of strategies to understand people, to build and express empathy. Because of this, the structure, and the events we organize throughout the exhibition, tend towards care and support systems: setting up the conditions to be making work together, to add onto, and to grow into.

Aware-LA/Alliance of White Anti Racists Everywhere/Saturday Dialogue
Saturday Dialogue (SD) is a gathering for white anti-racists who want to discuss issues of identity, community, privilege and racism in our lives with the intention to strengthen our practice as anti-racists in alliances, relationships, and interactions with people of color. Regular, recurring dialogues throughout the year focus on the intersections of multiple identities, including Race and Class, Sexuality and Race, and Gender and Race. Other workshops focus on relationships, Radical White Identity and Community, and issues such as police and the prison industrial complex, immigration, and gentrification. Together we’ll consider the work of building a white anti-racist practice a critical part of our radical care for the collective, the self, and relationship – within ancestral lineage, family, friendship, and community and invite you to share in a process of making this work visible as a cultural form and an indispensable part of the abolition of white supremacy.
