Taking its cues from the ethos of the city and situating art as an expanded field of culture that is entangled with the everyday, community networks, queer affect and indigenous and diasporic histories, Made in L.A. 2023 proposes a network of artistic affinities through intergenerational constellations. These artists suggest art can be an act of preservation and memorialization as well as a space for playfulness, satire and sheer wildness.
