The Skirball Cultural Center is a place of meeting that is guided by the Jewish tradition of welcoming the stranger and inspired by the American democratic ideals of freedom and equality. People of all communities and generations are welcomed and invited to participate in cultural experiences that celebrate discovery and hope, foster human connections, and call upon us to help build a more just society.
Exhibition support will be provided for Ken Gonzales-Day, Surface Tension: Murals, Signs & Mark Making in LA. On a route stretching from East LA to Venice Beach, and from the San Fernando Valley to Crenshaw and Watts, Gonzales-Day will photograph murals in the broadest and most inclusive sense. For Skirball, the he will create a photographic installation that looks at murals as creative expressions across Los Angeles, taking a critical look at racial representations in the images. The exhibition is expected to run from September 14, 2017 through February 25, 2018.
