Human Resources LA (HRLA)

Pasadena Art Alliance

Human Resources LA is an arts organization founded in 2010 by a team of creative artists who seek to broaden engagement with contemporary and conceptual art, with an emphasis on performative and underexposed modes of expression. HRLA’s gallery is located in Los Angeles’s arts-vibrant Chinatown neighborhood.

Funding will provide support for Beyond Nature, a group exhibition in HRLA’s Chinatown space of multimedia works and public programming that explore the natural environment as a racialized and gendered site of reflection. The project investigates issues of environmental sustainability, land appropriation, and ecological destruction, and their deep-rootedness in colonial histories. The project is scheduled for September through November 2018.
