Works Sited, reprised
curated by Olivian Cha
May 5 - June 30, 2013
Opening Reception, Sunday, May 5, 3 - 5 pm
Works Sited, reprised presents a set of reflections, deflections and thoughtful quotations linked through a shared involvement in a series of displays and programs at the Los Angeles Public Library. The artworks, publications and ephemera that make up this exhibition exist in a peculiar state of displacement. Works Sited, as a reprise or perhaps as an index, severs its physical connection to the library but remains contextually tied to its original site. Many of these works are newly conceived, while others have been previously shown, performed or used as reference material; they are presented here as a collection that was never intended to be one.

Works Sited is an exhibition series featuring work with themes relating to the Los Angeles Central Library's collections and practices. The project addresses the site of the public library as exhibition space and explores conventional notions of display within this context.
