On View through November 3rd.
|The second iteration of CURRENT:LA—the public art triennial sponsored by the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs—is currently in full affect, hosting exhibitions, workshops, and events across greater LA for five weeks through November 3rd. Following up on the first water-themed triennial in 2016, dozens of artists have contributed food-related public art projects that examine our region’s food culture, and “the advances—as well as the challenges—we face as producers and consumers.” In over a dozen public parks, artists are offering free public workshops on topics such as composting, native plants, solar cooking, fermentation, and growing your own algae. At Palms Park you can see Ry Rocklen’s troupe of performers in junk food costumes, or see artist Nari Ward’s Enchanted Servers sculptures in Leimert Park while enjoying bands and food from local vendors. Many of the works on view also feature opportunities to hear the artists speak about the ideas behind their projects.
