Artists from all over Los Angeles – and beyond – are presenting a group art exhibition entitled Here.

This timely and topical new Los Angeles exhibition tackles important issues including immigration and boundaries, examining the shifting physical and geographical boundaries, along with conceptual and imagined boundaries and boundlessness, in and around Los Angeles.

The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG), and the Barnsdall Art Park Foundation (BAPF) are pleased to present the group exhibition, Here, which recently debuted at LAMAG located at 4800 Hollywood Boulevard in Barnsdall Park and is now on view through January 6, 2019.

Here is a group exhibition that examines shifting physical/geographical and conceptual/imagined boundaries (and boundlessness) in, and around, the metropolis of Los Angeles. Boundaries provide us the physical and conceptual framework to delineate the idea of “self” from “other,” and “here” from “there.”

However, boundaries contain an inherent paradox; as political theorist William E. Connolly succinctly suggests, “Boundaries provide pre-conditions of identity, individual agency, and collective action; but they also close off possibilities of being that might otherwise flourish. Boundaries both foster and inhibit freedom; they both protect and violate life.”


In addition to the natural and traditional human geography (such as neighborhoods), the artists assembled in Here investigate Los Angeles’s internal physical and conceptual boundaries, the bridges in-between, and permeability of these boundaries. Here explores these localized frictions – the hybridity and fluidity of Los Angeles – to uncover these bounded and unbounded landscapes within Los Angeles.



Here features works by Heimir Björgúlfsson, Sandra de la Loza, Gajin Fujita, Gloria Galvez, Anna Sew Hoy, Iris Yirei Hu, Annetta Kapon, Patrick Martinez, Jane C. Mi, Alison O’Daniel, Renée Petropoulos, Nancy Popp, Umar Rashid, Sandy Rodriguez, Fran Siegel, Henry Taylor, and Mario Ybarra Jr.
