The ReflectSpace Gallery, Glendale Library, Arts & Culture and Craft Contemporary recently brought “Tactics of Erasure and Rewriting Histories,” an exhibition that highlights diverse artworks documenting acts of reclamation and removal as a process of making history, to Glendale Central Library.
The five featured artists — Fafnir Adamites, Andre Keichian, Alberto Lule, Miller Robinson and Ryat Yezbick — use archival and forensic materials, found objects and casting to investigate how state-sanctioned censorships create a system of oppression that impacts their sense of identity. Initially a juried exhibition at Craft Contemporary, the new iteration at ReflectSpace expands on the original show by presenting the artworks in the context of a municipal institution, the Glendale Central Library.
The exhibition will be on display through May 26. To learn more about ReflectSpace Gallery, visit reflectspace.org.
Visitors to the Glendale Central Library receive three hours of free parking across Harvard Street at the Marketplace parking structure, with validation at the service desk. Additionally, accessible parking is available on the east side of the building.
