The Brand Library and Art Center is a hidden Los Angeles treasure. The 3,200 square foot venue consists of a primary exhibition space, a 2,800 square foot Skylight Gallery, and an auxiliary space, the Atrium Gallery, 500 square feet overlooking their courtyard.
On Instagram, you will always find us posting sneak peeks, studio shots, and the work of our Thinkspace family from around the world. Follow the accounts of those artists and you’ll get a sneak peak into their lives and creative process. To continue our series, Thinkspace Family on Instagram, here are the accounts of a few of the artists who have installations at the Brand Library and Art Center.
Saner’s “In a Dream (En un Sueño) ” and the group exhibition NEXUS will both be on view at the Brand Library and Art Center now through January 6th.
Often pegged to themes of duality – the wholly human and the divine, magic and fact, animal and human, the innocent and the knowing, the indigenous and the colonizing, SANER, who’s given name is Edgar Flores, uses the mask as his primary vessel for storytelling. He draws from the ancient tradition and metaphor of Nahuale animal masks, that tell of human beings believed to shape shift – spiritually or physically – and transform into animal form. – Mass Appeal
This past weekend our group exhibition Nexus and SANER’s solo exhibition ‘In a Dream (En un Sueño)’ at the Brand Library & Art Center. The opening saw over 2,00o attendees through the doors from young children to those in their golden years, everyone loved the exhibitions responding to the works with intrigue and astonishment. We want to thank the artists and the incredible staff at the Brand, who made the night possible. The opening had an incredible energy that will be carried through out the end of the year.
