Clockshop is a multifaceted arts organization that works at the intersection of cultural production, politics, and urban space. Clockshop’s projects bring people together to explore the strange particularities of Los Angeles and situate the city in its global context. The organization curates conversations and screenings, and commissions new work from contemporary visual and performing artists.
Support will go towards the group exhibition entitled “Contemporary Artists in the Archives of Octavia E. Butler,” which will take place at the Armory Center for the Arts. The show will feature approximately ten artists who will create new artworks in response to their experience perusing Butler’s archives, which are maintained at the Huntington Library. The exhibition is scheduled to be on view October 2016 through January 2017.
