TORRANCE ART MUSEUM BRINGS TOGETHER ROTTERDAM AND LOS ANGELES IN
TORRANCE, CA, Feb 20, 2019 – Torrance Art Museum (TAM) proudly presents CO/LAB 4, an international, collaborative project which presents eight artist-run galleries and collectives from Los Angeles partnering with eight artist-run spaces from Rotterdam. Sixteen organizations combine their ingenuity to design eight unique curatorial projects.
TAM's Co/Lab series expands the creative horizons, linking regional art groups and alternative spaces from Los Angeles with their peers from around the world. TAM encourages this spirit of dialogue and the international exchange of ideas from different cultures - this time the Netherlands. These collaborations can reflect significant trends, indicating potential future directions and introducing the public to the next generation of artists. The ambition is to see this project reach out to all 4 corners of the globe and to establish Torrance, via TAM, as the location that brings us the global best of new art.
CO/LAB 4 will be on view from March 30, 2019 – May 17, 2019 at the Torrance Art Museum.
The opening reception will be held on Saturday, March 30th from 6 pm – 9 pm
