The city of San Pedro is one with a rich cultural history. As with most port cities, a state of flux is the constant. San Pedro is no different. From it's inhabitance by the Suag-na peoples, to its colonization by the Portuguese explorer Juan Rodriquez Cabrillo, to its growth as development into a bourgeoning port city and military fortification site, to its annexation by the city of Los Angeles, to its pioneering efforts relating to racial and sexual equality, San Pedro is a place of continual growth and rich history.

Immigrant/Emigrant explored the negotiation of art practice from an "outsider's" perspective. This can refer to non-traditional art practices that challenge more traditional modes of art practice in terms of medium and/or subject matter. It may also refer to practices that take place outside of the traditional exhibition space or work within it in a non-traditional way. Work may also adopt more literal approaches to the title and address issues of immigration or emigration directly.

Immigrant/Emigrant negotiated terms of difference under the inclusive umbrella of contemporary art.


Lara Bullock is a writer, contemporary art historian, and curator currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Contemporary Art History at the University of California, San Diego. She received her B.A. in Art History with Honours from the University of British Columbia, with an English Minor (2005) and her M.A. in Art History, Theory, and Criticism with scholarships from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2007). As a critic, she has published for a variety of print media from STEP Inside Design Magazine to THE Magazine. She has composed numerous catalogue essays for both galleries and museums, most recently for the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego's catalogue for the exhibition Viva la Revolucion: Dialogue with the Urban Landscape. As both a curator and scholar, Lara is interested in cultural criticism, DIY aesthetics, and "art" as a malleable and ever changing term, especially as it is accepted in the world of galleries, museums, and the academy. She is currently writing her dissertation on contemporary Street Art.
