About this Event
KaleidoLA welcomes Audrey Chan as our fifth speaker. Chan is a Chinese-American, Los Angeles-based artist, writer, and educator known for her research-based projects that articulate political and cultural identities. Her work is informed through allegorical narratives and the feminist construct of "the personal is political." Her wide-ranging practice includes paintings, digital compositions, installation, video, public performance, murals and symposia.
About the Artist
Chan is currently the inaugural artist-in-residence at the ACLU of Southern California and will speak about her residency with the ACLU-LA and the graphic works she has produced for the organization. Recently, she was a Visiting Artist Faculty in the Program in Art at California Institute of the Arts and an artist-in-residence at Sam Francis Gallery, Crossroads School for Arts and Sciences. Her large-scale public artwork entitled, “Will Power Allegory,” was commissioned by Los Angeles’s Metro Transportation Authority (MTA) for the future Little Tokyo/Arts District Metro Station, opening in 2022. She completed her MFA, Program in Art, School of Art, California Institute of the Arts, and BA with Honors, Studio Art and Political Science, Swarthmore College.
KaleidoLA is the Department of Art and Art History’s annual guest speaker series and is a featured program of the College of Communication and Fine Arts (CFA). For the past eight years, KaleidoLA has been a vital connection between Loyola Marymount University and the Los Angeles arts community. For fall 2020, in collaboration with LMU’s Laband Art Gallery, KaleidoLA will thematically center artists whose artwork and lived experiences foreground issues of racial, economic and social justice. In light of COVID-19 restrictions, all lectures will be delivered live on Zoom.
