On March 19, 2020, Mayor Eric Garcetti issued the first pandemic-related Emergency Order — “Safer at Home” — calling on Angelenos to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 by staying in their residences and limiting all external activities to only absolute necessities. More emergency orders would follow, expanding or loosening restrictions. For many, LA’s physical footprint, their access to resources, and public spaces shrank to a fraction of what it was, seemingly overnight.
House and Home examines Angelenos’ period of collective adjustment and recalibration at the beginning of the pandemic. We developed new relationships with our places of residence as well as a rapidly changing understanding of what public spaces mean to our personal and professional lives. Most of us have developed very different notions of home over the past year. What we see are artists inadvertently pushing the boundaries of their art practices to give light to the social constraints caused by the pandemic; the result is something that begs the viewer to ponder what is public, what is private, what is House and what is Home.
We encourage visitors to experience the artworks both in the order that they have been laid out on the page — top to bottom — as well as to consider them singly or grouped together in ways that resonate the most with their own journey over the past year.
This event is part of the larger “Reimagine Public Art” online art exhibition. Learn more about “Reimagine Public Art” at:
