LAXART

Pasadena Art Alliance

LA><ART is the leading independent non-profit contemporary art space in Los Angeles, committed to the production of ambitious and experimental exhibitions, public art projects and publications with both emerging and mid-career artists working locally, nationally and internationally.

The funds will go in support for a multifaceted project with artist Melanie Schiff.  The artist’s practice has developed through works that juxtapose man-made objects with the natural environment.  For this project, LA><ART has commissioned Schiff to create new work that builds on this foundation and, in combination with her 2008 move to Los Angeles, uses the coastal sunshine as her muse and uses long exposures, unexpected juxtapositions, and a play with light refraction.
