The Avenue 50 Studio is proud to present an exhibition of 11 local artists in an exhibition curated by Armando H. Torres.  Los Inbetweens: Artists Sin Barrios is a survey of creative individuals who have had to deal with being in-between worlds whether due to issues regarding nationality, community, race, gender or sexuality, and how these issues have filtered into their Art.

Los Inbetweens: Artists Sin Barrios
examines the tradition of the artist’s self-portrait as a means to access their particular concerns expressed within the work, and thus provides a systematic study of contemporary art, and its process by Latino/Latinas in 21st Century Los Angeles.

Los Inbetweens: Artists Sin Barrios
is a direct reflection of the artist and of a defining moment within the period, and or reality, in which they currently live.

*A Catalog of the exhibition will be available for purchase on opening night.
