Big City Forum will be presenting "The Club House" a two-week pop-up event at the new ForYouArt activity space on Willshire Blvd in the Miracle Mile district across from LACMA. BCF: The Club House will be a modular exhibition and lab for ideas that encourage cross-disciplinary explorations and exchanges centered around the idea of "maximum change".At this moment of social and civic transformation in the public space and within a current moment steeped in uncertainty, how do we generate it, ensure it, and give it agency?
Leveraging an interdisciplinary focus, "BCF: The Club House" presents a collection of methods, actions, objects, artifacts, and proposals for envisioning what change looks like curated by leading culture makers in Los Angeles. Each curated setting will involve contemporary art works, architectural models, book and print materials, graphic design, photography, and product design. The goal is to create an expansive environment in which multiple disciplines can have a dialogue, held together by how the multiple practices explore change. BCF: The Club House will also be accompanied with a curated program of evening events such as literary readings, music performances, and film screenings.
Curatorial team is composed of Edie Kahula Pereira, Ana Llorente, Creative Migration, John Southern.
