Yoshie Sakai: Grandma Entertainment Franchise Opening Reception

In her first solo museum exhibition, Grandma Entertainment Franchise, artist Yoshie Sakai brings together three immersive installations produced over the last three years: Grandma Day Spa, Grandma Nightclub, and Grandma Amusement Park. These three distinct but interconnected installations, composed of Sakai’s video and sculptural work, satirically reproduce public sites of leisure, re-imagined with grandmothers as their target demographic.

Teddy Sandoval and the Butch Gardens School of Art Opening Reception

The first museum retrospective dedicated to the inventive though overlooked artist Teddy Sandoval (1949–1995). A central figure in Los Angeles’s queer and Chicanx artistic circles, Sandoval was an active participant in both U.S. and international avant-garde movements. For twenty-five years, he produced subversive, yet playful artworks that explored the codes of gender and sexuality and continuously mined archetypes of masculinity in his work through his signature icon of a faceless man, often sporting a mustache.
