The School for Endurance Work attempts to re-tool the institution as a place of interdisciplinary public engagement through animation, fashion, music, painting, performance, photography, writing, and sculpture. This exhibition intends to educate the audience that we do not exist in isolation and artists are often times influenced by and critical of the world around them. The School for Endurance Work features LA-based artists whose work is at the intersection of critical history, community engagement, feminism, revolution, sustainability, and visual resistance.
Curated by Carole Frances Lung, artist, activist, and Cal State LA Professor of Fashion, Fiber, and Materials.
