Torrance Art Museum is pleased to present CO/LAB 4, an international, collaborative project which presents eight artist-run galleries and collectives from Los Angeles partnering with eight artist-run spaces from Rotterdam. Sixteen organizations combine their ingenuity to design eight unique curatorial projects.
The Co/Lab series expands the creative horizons, linking regional art groups and alternative spaces from Los Angeles with their peers from around the world. This edition features arts organizations from Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Torrance Art Museum encourages this spirit of dialogue and the international exchange of ideas from different cultures. These collaborations can reflect significant trends, indicating potential future directions and introducing the public to the next generation of artists. The ambition is to see this project reach out to all four corners of the globe and to establish Torrance, via the Torrance Art Museum, as the location that brings us the global best of new art.
