The opening day of a new exhibition by Mario Ybarra Jr. and Slanguage Studio, in collaboration with LACMA and Watts House Project. Following an artist's residency at the Garcia family's home in Watts, the exhibition considers the legacy of Simon Rodia and the impulse to create alternative or possible worlds out of unconventional materials or according to unorthodox impulses. Featuring assemblage, folk art, vernacular graphics, images of the Watts Towers, art from the LACMA collection selected by Ybarra and the Slanguage Studio, as well as a newly commissioned sculpture by Ybarra, the exhibition will connect the public art works done at the Watts residence with the LACMA campus.
