a collaborative project of CSU art museums and galleries
announces virtual event series for 2020-2021
The newly formed ConSortiUm, a collaborative project of art museums and galleries from the California State University (CSU) system, is pleased to announce a virtual event series that actively engages students, faculty, staff, and communities through visual arts-based dialogue. The inaugural program, PLATFORM, will launch in September 2020 and include six live virtual conversations with contemporary artists, collectives, and curators whose work is critical to current re-imaginings of the art world and the world at large.
All events will be presented live via Zoom and during Pacific Time hours. These events are free and open to the public.

Golden Hour: California Photography from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art
We are excited to share the news of Local Access, a new partnership via the Art Bridges Foundation and LACMA that will bring works from LACMA's collection to MOAH Lancaster, Riverside Art Museum, Vincent Price Art Museum, and CSUN Art Galleries.
Local Access's inaugural exhibition, "Golden Hour: California Photography from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art," features works by more than 70 artists and three photography collectives, offering an aesthetic approach to understanding the complexities and histories of California. These images from LACMA's collection have come to define the myths, iconographies, and realities of this unique state. With works ranging from the early 1900s to present day, "Golden Hour" is neither a didactic history of the state nor an inclusive tale of photographic history, but rather artists' impressions of the state of being in, and being influenced by, California.
