BRAND LIBRARY - Go Big or Go Home

Exhibition Opening Reception

On View:  February 20 - March 25, 2016

Opening Reception: February 20th, 6-9pm

A group exhibition of objects that question the limits of possibility. Thirteen Los Angeles artists present large scale sculpture and site specific installation.

On Saturday, February 20th, Brand Library & Art Center rises to the challenge: Go Big or Go Home with large scale sculpture and site specific installations from 13 Los Angeles area artists. The exhibition is the first in the Brand’s Artist As Curator series as part of their Learning Arts at Brand initiative, also known as LAB. Go Big or Go Home has been curated by Rough Play.

Go Big or Go Home is an exhibition of artists that rise to the challenge. Their artwork, whether produced through a physically demanding work process, extensive research, mastery of new disciplines, or by exposure to psychological or emotional vulnerability, represents a significant dedication to an idea that can be read as fearless and committed.

An opening reception for Go Big or Go Home will take place on Saturday, February 20th from 6:00-9:00pm. The reception is open to the public and all artists will be in attendance. All events at Brand Library & Art Center are free to attend.
