Gettin' off the Ground: Contemporary Stories from an American Community

Angels Gate Cultural Center (AGCC) is pleased to exhibit work by several Los Angeles based artists that engage in the current conversation on community.

For the next few years, AGCC's gallery invites the community to share their stories with us. We are interested in how these stories shape the collective consciousness in San Pedro and the South Bay area. As part of opening up the galleries to hear the voices within the community we have repositioned part of our Main Gallery to be a rotating roundtable discussion using artwork to stimulate conversations about identity, place, fellowship, and culture. Throughout the exhibitions visitors are asked to consider their lives, the lives of younger and older generations, and how a healthy community's well-being is sustained through the quality of relationships that individuals form in their community.

Over the next two years artwork will be selected on an ongoing basis that employ storytelling techniques to encourage dialogue on issues relevant to the South Bay/Harbor community and/or shared history. The artworks encourage us to think about our lives and how we communicate our story with each other.

Work will be featured that ranges from video to sculpture and explores issues of representation, identity and personal responsibility and continues to explore stories relevant to the local community. The artists include: Walt Cronin, Suzanne Mejean, Hung Viet Nguyen, Eddo Stern, and Eliot Yasumura. Visitors will be able to tell their own story through interactive art stations in the gallery.
