Pamela Valfer is an artist and instructor based in Los Angeles. Since moving to California from Minneapolis two years ago, her practice has evolved from object-oriented installation (3rd MN Biennial at Soap Factory, Exactitude at Burnet Gallery) into performative gestures with little reliance on the “art object”; allowing histories of architectural and mediated space to voice concerns about politics, societies and culture. SCHEIN is Valfer’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles.

On view through August 7
Saturdays 12-4pm and by appointment
