West Southwest: ABQ-LA Exchange

April 4–May 16, 2009

516 ARTS and LA Artcore presented a collaborative exhibition in both Albuquerque and Los Angeles, which featured 20 artists from diverse backgrounds and communities from our two western cities as well as a video program. Concurrent installations were on view on both floors of 516 ARTS and at LA Artcore’s two locations at Union Center for the Arts and the Brewery Annex. Los Angeles artists were selected by 516 ARTS and Albuquerque artists were selected by LA Artcore. The video program on view in both cities was curated by Bryan Konefsky. This project was part of an effort to build an alliance among like-minded arts organizations across the country.
