The opening features a reception, and an in-person evening of readings held in tandem with the show. Authors Wendy C. Ortiz, Deirdre Danklin, and Lisa Teasley will present their collaborative works published in the 7x7 online magazine. Each collaboration invites one visual artist and one writer to engage in a two-week creative conversation. The format, inspired by Surrealist games of the early 20th century, challenges participants to improvise, in their respective disciplines, a spontaneous story that pushes into ever-wilder imaginative terrain. Every finished 7×7 is singular, unclassifiable, and wholly original. Curated by Axel Wilhite, Co-founder of 7x7.LA.
After more than two years of having to close our doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to welcome back guests at our historic location in Venice, California, with a free exhibition and literary readings open to the public!
