Each video plays as simultaneous 2-channel video at 20 minute intervals beginning at the top of the hour, interrupting paid advertising.

WHM Retrospective 

Current work: 2018 Women's History Month Retrospective

In response to the celebrations throughout the City of West Hollywood planned for Women’s History Month (March 2018), Curator Jessica Rich presents a reflection and retrospective of the many female artists that have participated in the exhibitions on the electronic billboards. In designing the titles introducing the piece, the adjective traditionally used to identify an artist’s gender is purposefully absent. It is rare that history refers to Richard Diebenkorn as a “great male artist.” The video billboards have always conscientiously encouraged, supported and included the work of traditionally under-recognized artists whose voices are insufficiently amplified.

ABOUT THE CURATOR:

Jessica Rich of the Rich Picture, is delighted to present a celebration and retrospective of the female artists that have participated in the public art opportunities on Sunset Boulevard in multiple locations, over the last 5 years. Thanks to WeHo Arts, artists occupy, contest, and play with the boundaries and use of public space, challenging preconceived ideas about what art is and where art belongs.
