Nov. 9, 2019Feb. 24, 2020

Showcasing new work by artists selected for a yearlong collaboration with Los Angeles arts organization Clockshop, this exhibition marks the fourth year of The Huntington's /five initiative. Artists invited to participate in this year's project are Nina Katchadourian, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, and Rosten Woo, and writers Dana Johnson and Robin Coste Lewis, Poet Laureate for the City of Los Angeles. Each participant will create work based on research in The Huntington's collections investigating ideas of perfection and utopia using Thomas More's satirical work Utopia (1516) as a foundational text and starting point.
