Lonely LA is a poignant exploration of human resilience, isolation, and the hidden stories that unfolded within the lonely streets of Los Angeles during the early days of the pandemic. Photographer Jerry Fleury's unique ability to capture raw emotions and unseen narratives through his lens and complementary poetry transcends traditional artistic boundaries, creating an exhibition that will resonate deeply with visitors. The images in the exhibition were captured between March 27, 2020, to March 29, 2020. This ambitious exhibition brings 34 black and white images complimented by 34 poems in the form of a photo essay. The artist aims to capture the mood of DTLA at the start of the lockdown, a task for which he argues photography and poetry is uniquely suited.
Registration required for each class in the 4 week course.
Wednesdays in September from 2pm-3pm on:
Join us for a screening of the award winning film To Climb a Gold Mountain followed by a Q&A with Director and Executive Producer Dr. Alex Azmi.
‘To Climb a Gold Mountain’ tells the stories of four women of Asian descent who lived in America from the 1850s to the present day. The women came from different backgrounds and lived dramatically different lives. Some of the women featured in the film, such as Anna May Wong, have reached success and fame. Still others, like Sing Ye, who lived in the 1800s and fought for freedom, are all but forgotten.
Each woman’s story represents a distinct theme of struggle and triumph, and ushers in the succeeding story leading up to the present time. Through these stories, the film tracks the progression, evolution and legacy of the immigrants in America as they integrate into the fabric of America.
