Taking the film Reyner Banham Loves Los Angeles as a point of departure, we have opened our Wedge Gallery with the cycle Baede-Kar reexamining the history and speculating on the future of Los Angeles through exhibitions, talks, and workshops involving students, faculty, and invited contributors.
Join us for the next installment in the series: Research Rear View. The exhibition opens on Tuesday, January 10, from 6pm to 8pm at the Wedge Gallery on our Burbank/Los Angeles campus.
Woodbury University – Burbank
7500 N. Glenoaks Blvd.
An exhibition of research folios culled from 5th year seminar projects organized along four primary topics: The Rural Fantastic!, Liminal Forms, Hasard Objectif: Objective, and Calibrating Viscosity. Research Rear View presents Woodbury faculty Berenika Boberska, Mark Ericson, Paulette Singley, and Joshua G. Stein’s directed research seminars that feed into student degree projects in the spring semester of 2017.
The exhibition also features furniture and exhibition design exploring the architecture of LA by Woodbury School of Architecture alumni Elizabeth Fernandez and Dominic Tennette: ‘An homage to one of Los Angeles’ infamous relics, the car wash, once built for Angelenos’ lavish automobiles and their obsession to keep them pristine. By dissecting elements of various Los Angeles car washes, the work incorporates the repetitive, eye-catching members in order to showcase the artwork below them.’

About Wedge Gallery
Residing in a sliver of the School of Architecture on the Woodbury campus, the Wedge Gallery is the exhibition venue for the Los Angeles location. The small gallery space presents multiple shows per semester, each fitting into an overarching theme. The space exhibits student work, giving students the opportunity to learn from their classmates’ drawings and models, as well as work by invited architects, artists, and faculty members. Exhibits usually include a workshop or discussion component to create a more robust exchange between the exhibitors and participants. Wedge Gallery is typically open while classes are in session, during the Fall and Spring semesters.
