Past Exhibitions

Tristan Eaton: Permanent Collection
July 16 – October 31, 2021

Tristan Eaton showcases two exhibitions at LBMA Downtown in conjunction with All At Once at LBMA. A selection of the artist’s work from the LBMA Permanent Collection includes a floor to ceiling mural made with Nychos during Vitality and Verve: Transforming the Urban Landscape.

Space as Presence
Extended through June 27, 2021

Space as Presence at LBMA Downtown features large-scale installations from Southern California artists Christine Nguyen, Elyse Pignolet and Fran Siegel whose works mold to, and evolve with their surroundings. This malleability forms from a tiling process used by each artist; their “canvas” has no limitation, and the works as a result grow until they feel complete, changing to the shape of their environment. Nguyen, Pignolet and Siegel each navigate the intersections of material, narrative and space.
