Tarfest 2020: Transition

August 22 @ 12:00 pm - September 5 @ 5:00 pm

FREE

I am thrilled to be participating in:

Tarfest is a free multidisciplinary festival produced to provide artists performance/exhibition opportunities and audiences from all over Los Angeles with unique arts programming in the Miracle Mile District.cing Aret Exhibition

As significant transitions are evolving on multiple fronts, we are examining and redefining our relationships with one another as well as the physical space we occupy.

Recognizing this historic time, the artists of Tarfest 2020’s “Transition” open call juried exhibition respond to core concepts of change with their work. This exhibition brings together artists from across So California whose practices engage with change through process, concept, culture, chance, and more.

LAUNCH presents “Transition” in conjunction with Tarfest– our free multidisciplinary arts festival now in its 18th year. For 2020 and in response to Covid-19, Tarfest moves from Tar Pits Park to multiple venues over multiple days- allowing for safe gatherings with appropriate social distancing.

See the show!
