Cities of Days begins by investigating literal cities and the structures surrounding us. Informed by City of Quartz (Mike Davis), we situate the current city as a location of its past.
Here are disparate materials coalescing into form, here is a polyglot city of prototypes and experimentation, here is Los Angeles as amalgamation.
In the first three months of our year-long arc, we consider this nexus of ideas through words, objects, art, and programming.
JOIN US FOR THE OPENING WEEKEND THURSDAY - SUNDAY:
We will be open Thursday - Sunday, 11-7pm. Instead of a single opening party, each day of this opening weekend we will serve vegan Gray Russian cocktails thanks to Oatly and Our/ Los Angeles vodka, and coffee will be available during the day. On Saturday and Sunday there will be concrete-inspired ice cream sandwiches made by Triple Motion, donations for which will go to CARE International and CHIRLA.
And finally—interested in the ideas mentioned above? Want to delve into City of Quartz? We will be meeting periodically over the next few months to discuss this text and related ones. The preliminary meeting of our discussion group will be Sunday at 5pm. Drop by! If you can't make it this time click here to be involved with future meetings.
