Inhabit Heritage Square

An exhibition program where Los Angeles artists contextualize the site of eight historical Los Angeles buildings within contemporary life.

Inhabit Heritage Square is a new program which asks artists who reside in Los Angeles to interpret and explore the historical buildings and site of Heritage Square Museum. Artists will present works that question notions of preservation, interact playfully with the collection, and foreground Los Angeles as a site of exploration.

Each structure displays a different interpretation of the past, from historically staged rooms that portray life in the first 100 years of California’s statehood, to architectural details that signify particularities of building styles. Inhabit Heritage Square invites contemporary artists to act as the bridge between the past and the concerns of the present and future
