‘TRADITIONS’ Panel Discussion Saturday, January 27, 2024 2:00-3:00 PM
What exactly is a tradition? It can be a shared experience established by a family and community to be sustained over time or part of a larger cultural expression, the origins of which may be lost to the past and distant spaces. Either way, our vast Southern California landscape claims many of these traditions as its own. Traditions pays homage to the many familial and cultural facets of our diverse region. This special collaborative exhibition, curated by Thinkspace Projects and Tlaloc Studios, celebrates the many ways we honor heritage, ritual, and family through the artistic expression of working SoCal artists.
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 28 from 4-7pm, open and free to all!
On view September 26 through October 27, 2023 at: Walter N. Marks Center for the Arts College of the Desert 43-500 Monterey Avenue Palm Desert, California 92260
Collector Preview will be shared this Friday, September 22.
Always in pursuit of uniting and elevating the New Contemporary Art community, Thinkspace Projects teams up with Tlaloc Studios and the Perez Bros to present ‘RAIZ II’. Building on the community created with our first ‘RAIZ’ exhibition that took place at the Brand Library and Art Center in Glendale, California earlier this year, ‘RAIZ II’ seeks to strengthen.
We are also excited to be able to provide Alejandra and Vicente Perez their first opportunity to curate as well. The brothers have helped to make ‘RAIZ II’ a true family affair and we are so honored to have them a part of this special showcase.
With nearly 60 artists in the group show alone, the extravaganza is sure to be diverse and varied, bringing universal appeal from so many incredible contributors. With a focus on local Los Angeles based artists, the lineup is as impressive as it is varied. A solo show from the legendary Carlos Ramirez (ex-Date Farmers) rounds out the exhibition, filling the walls with innovative and genre-blending pieces across several mediums from the Coachella Valley artist.
The surrounding grounds themselves will also be bursting with compelling content, from live screen printing with our friends at Blue Hill Studios to a mini-mart filled with local creatives put together by the Bloody Gums artist collective alongside installations and more from the Bloody Gums crew plus local low rider club Bajitos Del Valle will be on hand to showcase as well. Save the date and we will see you soon!
The show opens with a special celebration on Thursday, September 28th with a reception from 4PM to 7PM. The exhibition will be on view from September 26 through October 27 at the Walter N. Marks Center for the Arts, located at the College of the Desert in Palm Desert, California.
