Broadway in LA’s historic Chinatown. The opening reception on Saturday June 8th from 6-10pm.  The exhibition will be on view Wednesday-Sunday from 12-6pm.


Subject Matters reflects the diverse fields that the graduating MFAs engage with outside the discipline of art, using a wide range of mediums and approaches. Subject Matters is curated by Claire de Dobay Rifelj, an LA-based curator and art historian who has organized exhibitions at the Hammer Museum, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the Williams College Museum of Art, among other arts spaces.


A catalogue designed by Brian Roettinger will accompany the exhibition and includes contributions by Claire de Dobay Rifelj and Lauren Mackler (founder and director of Public Fiction, which exists in print and space), as well as conversations with the artists.
