Up All Night Street-Facing Window Exhibitions

Available for viewing at

ArtCenter DTLA

Peter and Merle Mullin Gallery
Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography Gallery 

Exhibition dates: July 15 through August 31, 2020

ArtCenter Exhibitions presents a series of street-facing window exhibitions throughout the College’s exhibition spaces: ArtCenter DTLA, the Peter and Merle Mullin Gallery and the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography Gallery. Working within the limitations of safety protocols to present art reflective of our current cultural moment, this series of exhibitions, titled Up All Night, are to be experienced from outside the exhibition venue.

Up All Night was conceived in reference to the double meaning behind the phrase—from our pre-COVID-19 reality to the current conditions for both isolation and gathering. The selected videos, animations and mixed media art works represented propose a range of considerations in staying awake and active through the night. The title is also a nod to the recent shift in meaning that this much-used phrase may have signaled for many—from the pre-pandemic days, that most often implied a night of fun; to our current use of the term, that conveys the anxiety, urgency and activism that keep us up instead.

Up All Night includes the following series of video exhibitions:

“Face Time”

A selection of single-channel video works by a diverse range of artists contemplating the conditions of isolation and community. Artists featured are Brian Bress, Kent Anderson Butler, Nicole Cohen, Brent Everett Dickinson, Nina Katchadourian, Susan Lee-Chun, Isabelle Lutterodt, Joanne Petit-Frère and Marco Rios. Co-curated by ArtCenter DTLA Program Director Christina Valentine and ArtCenter Exhibitions Senior Curator Julie Joyce.

“Dream Time”

Selected animated shorts created by students in ArtCenter’s Entertainment Design Department.

“Great Writers/Orators/Artists: A Typographic Narrative”

Selected motion pieces designed by ArtCenter’s Graduate Graphic Design students under the instruction of Professor Tyrone Drake. These typographic narratives pay homage to the work of an influential individual selected by each student.

Presented in conjunction with:

The body draws what the mouth cannot say , A Love’s Remedies project
(ArtCenter DTLA Artist Residency Project 2020)

Love’s Remedies presents drawings, video, sculpture and performance by core collaborators Brd and Hannah Kim Varamini, and their micro-residency artists Carolina Hicks and Hanieh Khatibi, made through and alongside ongoing conversations from March to June of this year. Love’s Remedies focuses on building community through attention as material and supporting non-hierarchical interactions based on the premise of “nesting” into an institution.
