The Antioch University Los Angeles Library advocates for broad and free access to a variety of documents and experiences, including art. Art is vital to a robust civic life. We are therefore delighted to introduce AULA Library Art Projects, three shows a year featuring various artists, local and otherwise.
The Art Projects’ first launch features “Hunters, Timelines and Topographies,” nine works by Aaron Morse, a Los Angeles artist originally from Arizona. The reception will be Thursday, Oct. 16 at the AULA Library from 6 to 8 pm, and all are welcome to attend.
Michael Shaw, a Los Angeles artist, curates Art Projects. He writes: “My objective as curator is to introduce smart, accomplished and progressive art that is also accessible. Art can provoke warmth, discomfort, uplift, and/or confusion, but above all it can lead to dialogue. And time spent discussing art and a given work’s inner workings, as many artists and art professionals will tell you, is time well spent.”
Michael Shaw is an artist and the host of The Conversation Art Podcast. He has had exhibitions in Los Angeles and New York, is included in White Columns’ Curated Artist Registry, and currently has work in the show Exquisite Corpse at MASS Gallery in Austin.
Antioch University Los Angeles is at 400 Corporate Pointe in Culver City.
