FROM THE BARRICADES
Michelle Jane Lee
Curated by Artra (Los Angeles)
ARTRA Curatorial was formed in 2009 by Max Presneill
and Colton Stenke to answer the restrictions in exhibiting
opportunities for artists following the economic meltdown.
With commercial galleries closing, non-profits seeing their
budgets shrink and future funding drying up the artists felt
the need for a return to some DIY creativity in the search
for an engagement between artists and audiences.
