JOSE DÁVILA: SENSE OF PLACE
January 10 - April 20 - Entrance to Union Station's South Patio
LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) has commissioned Guadalajara-based artist Jose Dàvila’s Sense of Place, a multi-site, large-scale, public sculpture exhibition migrating through, and integrating into the diverse urban landscape of Los Angeles.
Fully assembled, Sense of Place consists of an eight-foot square cube sculpture comprised of 40 unique concrete forms. Initially installed in West Hollywood Park in September 2017, the modular pieces of Sense of Place transition into temporary locations for a period of two to six months through May 2018. LAND and Dàvila will situate five of these forms at Union Station for two months beginning on January 10, 2018 promoting interaction with the public, who will ultimately decide on the final function of the artwork.
