The Center for Imaginative Cartography & Research: NIGHT WALK

Lawndale Art Center

November 20 - January 9, 2016

NIGHT WALK is "immersive installation charting the open-ended experience of nocturnal exploration into overlooked urban spaces. Large hanging textiles, domestic and theatrical in nature, provide a backdrop for a shadowy narrative unfolding on the gallery floor. Interspersed within the space are a series of sculptural objects-competing entities, both toxic and healing-alongside scattered bits of research ephemera, at once informative and diversionary, found and fabricated." Basically, urban exploration within a gallery space.
