LAXART, Los Angeles
LA><ART is pleased to announce a public art initiative billboard with New York-based artist Talia Chetrit. Pulling from an archive of contact sheets from film the artist shot as a thirteen year old in the mid-1990s, the billboard features a re-cropped image of a member of Chetrit’s family. Her public billboard will be up on view through March 9th, 2014 facing north on La Cienega Boulevard between Venice and Washington Boulevards.
