    Conversation With… Sandow Birk

    The Conversation With… series brings artists to Laguna Art Museum to discuss their practice in a casual conversation with guests. The next artist in the series is Sandow Birk. Past guests in the series, which launched in 2011, have included Amy Caterina, The Legacy Project, Deborah Aschheim, Jeff Gillette, Ed Gomez, Mike Tauber, and Allison Schulnik. The evening will begin with a brief presentation by Birk about his process and work, followed by the rare opportunity for museum visitors to engage with the artist in conversation.

    Los Angeles artist Sandow Birk is a graduate of the Otis/Parson’s Art Institute whose work has dealt with contemporary life in its entirety. Past themes have included inner city violence, graffiti, various political issues, war, prisons, surfing, and skateboarding. He is the recipient of many awards including a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Fulbright scholarship to Brazil. In 2000, Laguna Art Museum presented Sandow Birk: In Smog and Thunder: Historical Works from the “Great War” of the Californias, and in 2010 Birk was included in the museum’s group exhibition Art Shack. Recent projects have dealt with the war in Iraq, the Constitution of the United States, and the Holy Qur’an. Birk is represented by the Koplin del Rio Gallery in Los Angeles, Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco, and P.P.O.W. Gallery in New York City.

    Following the discussion, enjoy a mixer featuring complimentary beverages and the opportunity to meet the artist. Additionally, you are encouraged to view the museum’s current exhibitions as well as participate in the Laguna Beach First Thursday Art Walk which takes place at area galleries from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
