  • High&Low Bureau is a curatorial duo composed of Yael Messer and Gilad Reich. They curate exhibitions, film programs, performative events and publications, while engaging with a plethora of disciplines, media and modes of artistic expression.Their curatorial practice is dedicated to the exploration of artistic strategies that reflect on, and suggest alternatives to, specific social-political conditions.

  • Los Angeles is a city often described as having no center. Its art community has turned that "disadvantage" into an advantage and given itself a license for adventure. Organizations, galleries, and artists find decentralization to be an exciting option and they establish their addresses in unexpected neighborhoods and zones in the city and even beyond, in other cities and states. What are the challenges and advantages of this programmatic and conceptual strategy? What are the risks, to organization and audience alike? Is this necessary, and if so, is it sustainable?

In conjunction with Otis’ Creative Action program, Big City Forum presents a series of discussions featuring individuals who actively reinvent social space and redefine how we engage with each other.

BCF asks artists, writers, architects, designers, musicians, and curators to reflect on how they currently live, what they've learned through experience, and what they'd like to pass along to others. Through dialog we seek to identify the connections that run through our creative processes and daily lives. We intend to tell the story of Los Angeles through the words and work of its most inventive participants.

The first panel scheduled for Thursday, February 20th addresses the collaborative process between a trans-disciplinary curator, an olfaction artist, and a contemporary arts writer.
