Special thanks to Walgreen Co.

From May 13th to May 30th, LAND presented Come as you are…, a rotating artist residency, performance space, and exhibition held at 8126 Santa Monica Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90046.

Each of the three participating artists took up residency for a week’s time, during which they used the space to whatever end they conceived – a film shoot, a participatory exhibition, a performance space, a studio, and so on. Each residency offered a public component, but its format was unique to the artist’s work and process.

Come as you are… was made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs.
