Tatyana Fazlalizadeh: Speaking to Falling Seeds

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary artist whose practice considers Black image making as a site of protest, contestation, affirmation, and possibility. At CAAM, Fazlalizadeh will present a series of portraits of Black Angelenos wheat-pasted across the atrium’s monumental walls. Based on photographs and conversations that took place this spring while the artist was living in Los Angeles, the portraits ask how safety is inferred, built, and felt for the city’s Black residents.

Black California Dreamin’: Claiming Space at America’s Leisure Frontier

Access to nature, recreation, and sites of relaxation—in other words, leisure—is critical to pursuing the full range of human experience, self-fulfillment, and dignity. The exhibition illuminates Angelenos and other Californians who worked to make leisure here an open, inclusive reality in the first half of the twentieth century. In shaping recreational sites and public spaces during the Jim Crow era, African Americans challenged white supremacy and situated Black identity within oceanfront and inland social gathering places throughout California.

Rooted In Africa

“Rooted in Africa” is more than an exhibition; it is a dialogue between cultures, a celebration of diversity and unity. Through our theme – “Two People, Two Continents, Two Countries, Two Cultures, Two Genders, Two Generations, Two Races, Two Religions, Two Ideologies” – we explore the convergence of different worlds, coming together in a harmonious symphony. Our artists are not just creators; they are storytellers, visionaries, and pioneers, weaving their narratives into a tapestry of shared human experience. We invite…
