The SUR:biennial, a multi-venue exhibition focusing on artists influenced and/or impacted by cultures from south of the US-border, aims to expand Los Angeles’ importance as a critical epicenter in today’s decentralized art scene. Three venues in Cerritos, Torrance, and Whittier were chosen to host the exhibit, as these are predominantly Latino communities on the south and east sides of Los Angeles county that are often overshadowed by art venues on the westside.
The artworks range from paintings, collages, conceptual art, video installations, large-scale sculptures, site-specific installations, social interventions, and live performance art.
