Sight Specific: LACPS and the Politics of Community

The Los Angeles Center for Photographic Studies (LACPS) was first introduced in 1974 as a means to spark creativity and growth in the community through photo based representation. For Southern California photographers, this organization was crucial to the fostering and well-being of a community followed by the creative dialogues that took place in respect toi their art practice. Photography was sought as a medium used by artisits to explore new ideas, spark creativity, and rekindle communities through an artistic approach. This space is a site for innovative exhibitions that push the boundaries of photographic practice and reclaim a history that has been overlooked.

Curated by Tim B. Wride, Sight Specific: LACPS and the Politics of Community will explore the personalities, programs and impact of the Los Angeles Center for Photographic Studies (LACPS). The exhibition will be structured with photo-documentation as well as video oral histories that will lead the story of how the organization has contextualized history of photography in its region. Some ot the photographs will discuss the contemporary issues surrounding the photographic practice at the time in which it was created. Others will set the stage for the future of image making within and beyond regional boundaries.
