These Creatures Artist Talk Sarana Mehra

Monday, October 7
3-450pm
Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art, Rancho Campus
Join These Creatures artist Sarana Mehra, a British artist living and working in Los Angeles. Her work uses the language of mythology and iconography to examine the hyper-contemporary reframing of the body, the body-politic and self by the ubiquity of technology. Exploring new developments in language and symbolism, Mehra’s work seeks to draw a connection between extant humanity and remnants of our primitive past.


These Creatures Artist Talk Michelle Carla Handel

Wednesday, October 23
11am-1220pm
Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art, Rancho Campus
Los Angeles-based artist Michelle Carla Handel’s work explores contradictory states, at once seductive and grotesque. Her sculptures utilize digital photography and mixed media that together create a kind of visual taxonomy. Handel’s work has been exhibited widely in the Los Angeles area. Join us to hear Handel talk about her work, on view now through November 23.


These Creatures Feminist Love Letter Writing Party

Wednesday, October 30
1230-2pm
Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art Project Space
In 1971 Nancy Spero sent Lucy Lippard a letter with the simple but impassioned message, “The enemies of women’s liberation in the arts will be crushed. Love, Nancy.” This note serves as the inspiration for Feminist Love Letters, a project that invites participants to profess their love, send words of support and encouragement, or unleash their feminist fury in a letter to a contemporary or historic feminist. Join us to write a letter, all materials provided.
