Suzy Halajian and Marisa Takal are taking part in I Know What You Did This Summer at Los Angeles’ Bolsky Gallery at Otis College of Art and Design on August 4.

A bi-weekly gathering organized around informal slideshow presentations by curators, artists, writers and producers in the Los Angeles area, the series aims to take the form of a personal travelogue. Participants are encouraged to “share places, experiences, and encounters during summer travel near and far”.

Artist Takal —who primarily works in painting and has shown in spaces such as SADE LA and Night Gallery —has more recently presented as part of the  PLEASE HAVE ENOUGH ACID IN THE DISH! group exhibition at M+B Art and recently offered home-cooked meals for ‘Cafe 356: A Neighbor Cooking’ at 356 Mission.

A previous IKWYDTS event hosted Anna Sew Hoy and Jesse Stecklow in early July, with the last event in the series taking place August 18 and including curator and writer Jamillah James.

Anna Sew Hoy + Jesse Stecklow @ Bolsky Gallery, Jul 7

5 July 2016

Anna Sew Hoy and Jesse Stecklow will be taking part in the I Know What You Did This Summer series at Los Angeles’ Bolsky Gallery at Otis College of Art and Design on July 7.

The bi-weekly gatherings are organised around informal slideshow presentations by LA-based curators, artists, writers and producers of the places, experiences, projects and encounters informing their summer “travel, respite and hiatus”.

Sew Hoy is an Auckland-born artist often working with sculpture constructed from a combination of found objects and industrial materials exploring form, texture and contrasts, while Stecklow, who often works with time and collage, this year presented a solo exhibition at Stockholm’s Loyal Gallery called Two Clocks and took part in the default group exhibition at LA’s Honor Fraser. 

Other presenters to take part in the I Know What You Did This Summer series through the rest of July and August include Jess Arndt, Marisa Takal and Jamillah James.

See the Bolsky Gallery website for details.**
