No Wrong Holes: Thirty Years of Nayland Blake
through January 26, 2020

For over 30 years, artist, educator, and curator Nayland Blake has been a critical figure in American art, working between sculpture, drawing, performance, and video. Heavily inspired by feminist and queer liberation movements, and subcultures ranging from punk to kink, Blake’s multidisciplinary practice considers the complexities of representation, particularly racial and gender identity, and the subjective experience of desire, loss, and power. No Wrong Holes marks the most comprehensive survey of Blake’s work to date and their first solo institutional presentation in Los Angeles. Learn more
