Ozzie Juarez is a multidisciplinary artist who explores the realm of painting and sculpture while actively working to be a resource for his artistic and cultural community. Juarez opened Tlaloc Studios, an artist studio and exhibition space for the Los Angeles community, which has become just as much a part of Juarez’s artistic practice. In Juarez’s practice he formulates his own visual language to investigate reimagined histories of past civilizations and their speculative futures.
LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) is proud to introduce Soundscapes, our new programming series dedicated to experimental music and audio practices, inviting artists to consider how location and sound in its various modalities are deeply intertwined. This series champions artists prioritizing audio and the sensorial over the ocular to facilitate unique experiences widely available to the public.
Soundscapes joins LAND’s existing series, Nomadic Nights, dedicated to performance and socially-engaged practices, and Frame Rate, presenting film and moving-image work. These three series demonstrate LAND’s dedication to supporting artists in immediate and responsive ways, while providing the public with access to works in process or newly-created.
This program was made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs. @culture_la
