Exhibition Opening: THE WINTER OFFICE: Non-Perfect Dwelling
You and your guests are cordially invited to join us as we celebrate the opening of THE WINTER OFFICE: Non-Perfect Dwelling on Saturday, June 29 from 6 to 8 pm at Armory Center for the Arts. Live performance begins at 7:00 pm. This reception is free and open to everyone.
The Winter Office, an artistic and professional work group of artists, curators, architects, designers, and social scientists with ties to Copenhagen, Denmark, presents new works that engage the challenges facing Southern California – including rising housing inequality, economic displacement, house-lessness, and environmental disaster. Conceived of as a collection of thought provoking vignettes, Non-Perfect Dwelling brings together wildly different time scales and references, including comic book anti-hero Bizarro, ancient ammonite fossils, futuristic holograms, and an operational podcast studio, to create an environment where urgent approaches to dwelling and cohabitation can be imagined and planned.
Special thanks to the project's partners: the The Danish Arts Foundation, The Knud Højgaard Foundation, and the 18th Street Arts Center
