Mash Gallery presents GENIUS LOCI: Is Geography Still Artistic Destiny? Moderated by Peter Frank on Sunday, August 11 at 3 PM to 6 PM.

Los Angeles writer, art critic, and curator Peter Frank asks “Does the art “scene” in LA — or, for that matter, anywhere — still, constitute a stylistic measuring stick? Are there still local “movements”? (Get tickets here).


If there are, do they give an advantage or prove an impediment to local artists showing and being understood in national/international contexts?

Jenn Stark
