The works in Material Recovery reclaim common materials such as cardboard, plastic, and wood – the very products that flow through the nearby Port of Los Angeles destined for landfills. As printmakers, the members of LYNK Collective have a vested interest in the ongoing recovery and reduction of waste. The paper on which they print— “rag” paper—was traditionally made from scraps of recycled cotton rags. Material Recovery: Printmaking with Recycled Materials is an expression LYNK Collective’s values, as ecologically conscious artists inhabiting a shared earth, producing artwork made from recycled rather than raw materials.

Black, Brown & Beige

In 1943 Duke Ellington performed for the first time the symphony Black, Brown and Beige at Carnage Hall. Ellington described it as, “a parallel to the history of the American Negro”. The title of the symphony referred to the mistaken assertion that African-Americans can be categorized by a single color.

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh: Speaking to Falling Seeds

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary artist whose practice considers Black image making as a site of protest, contestation, affirmation, and possibility. At CAAM, Fazlalizadeh will present a series of portraits of Black Angelenos wheat-pasted across the atrium’s monumental walls. Based on photographs and conversations that took place this spring while the artist was living in Los Angeles, the portraits ask how safety is inferred, built, and felt for the city’s Black residents.
