Made in LA

I once had a reality TV show in development called MAIDS IN LA...about a group of housecleaners who all work for very wealthy clients.  It was a modern-day version of Downton Abbey.  It didn't sell.

This "Made in LA" is different.  First off it's MADE not MAID and second, it's an exhibit showcasing artists from the greater Los Angeles area.

From their site:

The exhibition’s 32 artists range in age from 29 to 97 and have contributed works that are deeply engaged with vital aspects of our contemporary culture. While there is no overarching theme, many of the artists share common interests. Several grapple with issues of representation, marginalization, and pressures placed on the body. Some artists offer interpretations of cultural practices, proposing how ancient forms of knowledge may be reimagined in the present, or reflect on the current political climate. Others consider the landscape, climate change and its repercussions, and the relationship between the land, capitalist expansion, and violence. Through drawings, paintings, sculpture, textiles, performance, video, photography, and installations—many newly commissioned expressly for Made in L.A. 2018—these artists exemplify the diverse and creative landscape of Los Angeles today.
Made in L.A. 2018 is organized by Anne Ellegood, senior curator, and Erin Christovale, assistant curator, with MacKenzie Stevens, curatorial associate. Performances are coordinated by Vanessa Arizmendi, curatorial assistant.

The exhibit runs from June 3-Sept 2 2018 at the Hammer Museum...and admission is “free for good” thanks to donors Erika J. Glazer and Brenda R. Potter. Drop in on Saturdays at 1 p.m. for tours of special exhibitions.

Here is to celebrating the people of LA...we ❤️ya.
