Photo exhibition tour/walk through of Experience 35: GROUNDED with curator Colin Westerbeck
at El Segundo Museum of Art (ESMoA)
Saturday, September 22, 11 am
Exclusive event for LACP Members only
Colin Westerbeck will be offering a free exhibition tour/walk through for LACP Members of the exhibition Experience 35: GROUNDED at the El Segundo Musuem of Art.
Experience 35: GROUNDED: John Divola and Zoe Crosher Approach LAX from Different Directions – is about the work of two prominent Southern Californian photographers: John Divola and Zoe Crosher. Each has done a major project very different from the other’s, but with a common theme: LAX.
Done 30 years apart, the two projects are very different in approach and look, which is why the two are astute commentaries not only on the history of LAX, but on the history of photography itself.
