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 announce the new AULA Library Art Projects, three shows a year featuring various artists, local and otherwise.
Art Projects curator and Los Angeles artist Michael Shaw 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.”
The Art Projects first launch features “Hunters, Timelines and Topographies,” nine works by Aaron Morse, an artist living and working in Los Angeles, originating from Tucson, Arizona.
Michael Shaw is an artist and the host of The Conversation Art Podcast. He has had exhibitions at Sabina Lee and Don O’Melveney galleries in Los Angeles and at Eyewash and Black + Herron Space in New York, and is included in White Columns’ Curated Artist Registry.
Visit the library, come find a book, come meet the art.
