DiverseartLA – Virtual Talks Leading Up To 2021 LA Art Show
The LA Art Show debuts a new series of virtual DIVERSEartLA Talks beginning February 18th. DIVERSEartLA Talks is a series of virtual discussions focusing on the museums, institutions and artists featured in the upcoming 2021 LA Art Show. The talks support the LA Art Show’s commitment to provide a sense of normalcy after a year of turmoil and uncertainty in the art world.
The virtual talks will be hosted by new LA Art Show Director Kassandra Voyagis and moderated by DIVERSEartLA’s curator Marisa Caichiolo. Drawing from the exciting 2021 DIVERSEartLA program under Caichiolo’s direction, the virtual talks will feature a slate of fascinating women and non binary artists at the forefront of work at the intersection of art, science, and technology, represented by guest museums and institutions.
Prospective guests include directors and curators of museums like AMA, Museum of the Americas (Washington), Museum of the Arts of San Marcos (Lima, Peru), Women Voices Now (Los Angeles) and Museum La Neomudejar (Madrid, Spain) among many others who will have the opportunity to share their projects with LAAS fans online.
The series will be accessible through the LA Art Show website as of mid-February. Providing an opportunity to learn more about the DIVERSEartLA program and its role within the LA Art Show, the virtual talks will offer behind the scenes stories and updates, to fully immerse listeners in the process of producing the show. This new series is yet another way the LAAS is using art to bring people together, even under the current Covid restrictions.
