3434 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles


From Here to There presents 3434 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, a guerrilla art show in the empty lot at the corner of Sunset Blvd. and Micheltorena in Silver Lake. The installation consists of 10 mounted images placed in the lot and visible from the street. Our intention is to utilize a space that is currently unused and in transition to display art. The images included present our interpretations of what it means to occupy land while making a public space personal.
Los Angeles is notorious for its ever-changing urban landscape. Areas such as Silver Lake, Los Feliz, Echo Park, and beyond are rapidly being gentrified as developers claim every spare inch of land available. We chose to bring the often enclosed and distanced gallery space into the public arena of Sunset Blvd. by using the readily available outdoor construction space that is such a part of our daily landscapes. By including a variation of landscape images, we hope to give the viewer an opportunity to reflect on themes involving land usage through both the personal and public realms.
