Monte Vista Projects is pleased to announce our 2023 Open Show, which brings together 38 Los Angeles-based artists working in diverse media.


Curatorial Statement:

Featuring selected work from our Open Call, we put together a group show of 2D and 3D work that best met a criteria of excellence in formal and/or conceptual terms. We received over 120 submissions from which 38 artists were selected. While we are regretful that we were unable to accommodate many fine works, we are excited about the blend of voices to be presented, and are grateful for the enthusiasm of all the applicants.

As lead curators of the 2023 Open Show, our goal was to facilitate an accessible, inclusive display of artistic excellence by local artists. We used a dense, salon-style hang because we believe this approach to be the most open and inclusive hanging strategy. It also allowed us to showcase the greatest number of artists.

As we hung the show, we focussed on the associations and connections that could be drawn between works and which would generate a visual conversation. It is our hope that this show will encourage and support the community of makers in Los Angeles as they continue to make their creative contributions to life in our shared city.
