Pasadena Art Alliance

Clockshop is a multifaceted arts organization that works to expand the dialogue around cultural production, politics, and urban space by commissioning new projects by contemporary visual artists and writers and partnering with diverse cultural institutions.

Funding will be used to support Tzolk’in, a site-specific project by Los Angeles artist Beatriz Cortez. Tzolk’in (the 260-day Mayan calendar that measures time in permanent circularity) will be a freestanding sculpture envisaged as a metaphor for multiculturalism in LA County, as a site to a play, and a space in which to reflect upon industrial landscape and the passing of time. The project is anticipated to take place in June 2018.
