Oceanside-born, Los Angeles-based artist Ruben Ochoa’s practice, like that of a land surveyor’s, engages space as both a concept and a collection of material forms that structure human life. For Ochoa, space is the product of specific and intentioned acts rather than a naturalized entity. Using materials that makeup the built environment—concrete, metals, wood—Ochoa creates artworks that reveal how construction techniques shape the spaces people inhabit and in turn directly impact their access and mobility.

While previous exhibitions of Ochoa’s work have focused on his masterful use of materials and his generative contributions to sculpture, seldom have his works been contextualized as articulations of a spatial practice. Ruben Ochoa brings together a focused selection of the artist’s early and more recent artworks that highlight his long-standing interest in space and his interrogations of the processes that bring it to being.

Surveying the extensive career of multi-talented artist Maren Hassinger, this exhibition presents sculpture, performance documentation, and videos that explore the emotional dynamics of relationships amongst different communities of people, and between them and the environments in which they live. Born in Los Angeles, Hassinger received her MFA from UCLA and was active with a group of experimental black artists in the city before relocating to the East Coast and becoming the director of a leading graduate sculpture program in Baltimore.
