Summer 2015 Volunteer Training to Begin Soon

Heritage Square is always in need of more volunteer docents to help introduce our guests to the museum and our wonderful buildings. If you enjoy the lifestyle and architecture of the past this might be a great opportunity for you!

Volunteers are an integral part of Heritage Square. To become a regular volunteer at Heritage Square we ask that you complete our 5 session training course. All classes are from 9:30am-11:30am on Saturday mornings. The first session is free of charge and the subsequent sessions have a $5 materials fee. These classes cover a wide range of topics from Victorian interior design to LA history. The course is designed to introduce you to the concepts covered at the museum and give you the tools necessary to create an informed tour. Our next session of volunteer training will begin August 1.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please fill out the volunteer application found on this page and return it to me at your convenience. Please contact Jessica at (323) 225-2700 ext. 222 or via email at educator@heritagesquare.org if you have any additional questions.

“In Search of An Exit” at Heritage Square April 10 to May 3

The works in the exhibition present situations where individuals or groups of people find themselves in a space and have to negotiate their existence within pre-established and external conditions. Inspired by Jean Paul Sartre’s 1944 play No Exit, the exhibition considers themes of time, existence, freedom, and collectivity through time-based work. The structure of a given environment is a pervasive yet ever-evolving stimulus of human behavior capable of catalyzing a spectrum of reactions, from cultural resistance to immersion. The works in this exhibition, a selection of video installations, sound works, and performances, address the adaptability of the human condition in response to external circumstances.

The exhibition will take place at the Heritage Square Museum—a living history museum featuring nineteenth-century buildings from Southern California—a choice of location that highlights the human impulse to preserve artifacts. As the characters in No Exit questioned the peculiarity of their surroundings (a Second Empire-style parlor room), the twenty-first-century artworks stimulate a similar assessment of the three Victorian-era houses into which they are placed. The unique setting additionally highlights the prevalence of the built environment and the effects of architecture as preoccupations for many of the artists in the exhibition.

The participating artists of In Search of an Exit (or Eight Characters in a Parlor) are Basma Alsharif (b.1983, Kuwait), Jordi Colomer (b.1962, Barcelona), Patricia Esquivias (b.1979, Caracas), Emiliano Rocha Minter (b.1990, Mexico City), Miller Robinson (b.1992, Lodi, California), Barbara T. Smith (b.1931, Pasadena), Sergio de la Torre (b.1967, San Diego), and Clarissa Tossin (b.1973, Porto Alegre).

The exhibition will be on view at Heritage Square Museum located at 3800 Homer Street in Los Angeles. Gallery hours are Friday through Sunday, 11:30am-4:30pm, April 10th – May 3rd, 2015. An opening reception will be held on April 7th, from 6pm – 9pm.

Program Information, MA Art and Curatorial Practices in the Public Sphere program:
In Search of an Exit (or Eight Characters in a Parlor) is the practicum exhibition for the 2015 candidates in the MA Art and Curatorial Practices in the Public Sphere program, an intensive Master’s-level program in the practice and history of curating studied through the lens of critical theory and the history of art. With a focus on the research and exhibition of contemporary art, as well as attending to art historical curating and broader conceptions of curating such as performance art programming, instructors with international careers lead students in asking social questions about the exhibition of art (broadly construed) in relation to its publics. Over two years of full-time academic study, students explore modes of curatorial practice in a curriculum combining seminars and professional training. Courses are lead by USC Roski’s internationally acclaimed faculty which includes renowned artists, scholars, critics and curators. For questions about the program, please contact mapublic@usc.edu
