HomeLA: Cudayh

20150615_192151For this iteration of homeLA there will be only the foundation of a home among 35 acres of rolling desert hills. The site, Cudayh, is an outdoor gallery space run by visual artists Frankie Carino and Vanessa Kowalski.

From the premise of working in an open, “empty” space, guest curator, Nickels Sunshine, would like to emphasize the missing presence of home by inviting artists to bring the ghost of a performance, resurrected and adapted for a hillside at dusk. Or, approach a new project with the memory or dream of home in its clutch.

Artists: Kevin Williamson, Peter Hernandez/Julias Smack, Milka Djordjevich, Rikki Rothenberg, Julia Kouneski, Bernard Brown, & Benjamin Boatright.

October 4th 6:00pm-8:00pm

Tickets: $15

Location given upon ticket purchase.  More info here, purchase tickets here.
