Jose Dávila has been awarded a grant for an exhibition at LAND as part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative in September, 2017 till 27 of May 2018.
LAND commissioned Guadalajara-based artist Jose Dávila to create Sense of Place, a multi-site, large-scale, public sculpture exhibition migrating through, and integrating into, the diverse urban landscape of Los Angeles to draw a portrait of the city’s many experiences, geographies and histories. Sense of Place was derived from Davila’s Joint Effort sculpture series which expands the concepts of balance and equilibrium using basic construction materials such as concrete blocks and stones.
The six ton concrete sculpture will be on view to the public in the park from sunrise to sunset through November 2017 when it will begin to disassemble into 40 individual sculpture pieces and then migrate throughout the city to be reinstalled in approximately 20 different public sites. Public programming will be announced throughout the exhibition to celebrate the sculpture’s migration.
