Major Exhibition Featuring NELA Artists to Open in the Fall

2020 Arts & Culture Editions July More News

By T. A. Hendrickson

Made in L.A. 2020 has been delayed but not waylaid. The high-profile exhibition of Los Angeles-based artists, originally scheduled for this summer, is now set to run from early September through January 3.

This is great news for the 30 artists in the show, a group that includes five artists from Northeast L.A.

It is also great news for art audiences in NELA because one of the two locations for this year’s exhibition is the nearby Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens in San Marino. The other location is the Hammer Museum in Westwood, which has staged a Made in L.A. exhibition every other year since 2012.

Made in L.A. focuses on emerging and underrecognized artists. Four of the five NELA artists in the upcoming show live or work in Highland Park: Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon; Hedi El Kholti; Monica Majoli and Jeffrey Stuker. Another NELA artist in the show is Alexandra Noel of Montecito Heights.

Over the years, Made in L.A. has become one of the art world’s most anticipated events. The exhibitions have catapulted the careers of featured artists, including Christina Quarles of El Sereno and Carmen Argote of Lincoln Heights, both of whom participated in Made in L.A. 2018. The exhibitions have also cemented the reputation of L.A. – including NELA – as a creative hub.
