On view from February 5 through March 26, 2017—with LA Municipal Art Gallery’s visionary curator Erin Christovale at the helm—in consultation with guest curators Suzanne Hudson, Simon Leung, and James Nisbet—Ours is a City of Writers explores new approaches to writing, which are evidenced across the contemporary art world—particularly here in Los Angeles! Invited writers have selected artists to collaborate with and vice versa. Each collaboration has led to a new piece of writing, artwork, performance, lecture, or program, exhibited in the gallery and staged as live events. Among the nearly 60 artists and writers featured in the show are the multi-disciplinary projects of Karon Davis, Scott Benzel, Susan Silton, and Young Joon Kwak
