Event Description

“As people are being pushed out of their context, their neighborhoods, their narratives, I think we need the platform to tell our stories.” —Visual artist Lauren Halsey, on The Crenshaw District Hieroglyph Project

The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA), presents Lauren Halsey: we still here, there, a site-specific installation work created at MOCA’s Grand Avenue location.

This spring Los Angeles–based artist Lauren Halsey (b. 1987, Los Angeles, California) will take up residence at MOCA Grand Avenue, where she will build and regularly change an immersive space resembling a fantastical system of caves that viewers are invited to linger in and explore. This environment will serve as a visionary archive reflecting the diversity of everyday Black cultural experiences in South Central L.A., the artist’s home since childhood. 

Lauren Halsey will continue to publicly transform her installation during the run of the exhibition. She will be in gallery every other week on alternating Fridays and Saturdays, beginning Saturday, March 10. 

Select dates are listed below:

March 10

March 23

April 7

May 5

May 18

Additional June, July, and August dates to be announced at a later date.
