An Incedndiary Traces started as a online gallery on the LA Forum Website and we are pleased to see this project progress. Join artists Hillary Mushkin (Incendiary Traces, Elizabeth Chaney (Tijuana/UCSD), and Steve Rowell (Center for Land Use Interpretation); art historian Jason Weems (UC Riverside), creative researcher Aurora Tang; writer Janet Owen Driggs(Metabolic Studio); and cultural geographers Nick Bauch (CSU-LA) and Rick Miller (UCLA) for images and dialog on Los Angeles’ unique engagement with visual representation, military territorialization, and flora appropriation.

This program will offer historical and contemporary variations on how the palm-dotted landscape is represented for political and cultural purposes, while tracing assorted perspectives on landscape imagery that extend from 19th century drawing and painting practices.

FREE, but reservations requested.

This event is part of the Incendiary Traces project. To learn more, see the LA Forum for Architecture and Urban Design, and KCET Departures.
