About the Piece

Far Enough Away is a conversation about the concept of transposing the frontier, presented in conjunction with the final weekend of A Vast Furniture, an installation by Carmen Argote at Iron Age Road in Wonder Valley.

Looking at both proximity and distance from the center of development within the sprawling Los Angeles landscape at various points in time, the program will begin with West Hollywood of the 1920s, and follow a horizontal line eastward to El Monte of the 1950s and Wonder Valley of the 2000s. These three locations are brought together as places where radical ideas were afforded space to flourish, and as destinations for those seeking to be far enough away yet still close to the city of Los Angeles.

Speakers included Carribean Fragoza, Michael Ned Holte, and Reanna Alder
