PRJCTLA @ CMAY GALLERY is pleased to present "Migration" a group exhibition featuring five Los Angeles-based artists including China Adams, Alexandra Grant, Alexandra Wiesenfeld, Jae Hwa Yoo, and HK Zamani. The show delves into the Los Angeles art scene by spotlighting artists who have relocated to the city. This showcase does not aim to provide an exhaustive overview of the broader artist migration to Los Angeles. Instead, it serves as an exploration of a select group of artists and their unique narratives about what has drawn them to this captivating metropolis.

Los Angeles has been a hub of creativity in the arts for over a century. The city's reputation as an innovative powerhouse began with the rise of the movie industry, and it has remained a prominent part of Los Angeles's cultural scene ever since. The entertainment industry, including film, television, and music, continues to thrive in the city, attracting talented individuals from all corners of the globe.

The visual art scene began to blossom some decades later attracting artists from all over the world. The art schools were a destination for the artists and the burgeoning art scene with developing new ideas and concepts that would influence artists around the world.

This evolution continued through the decades attracting more and more artist to this wonderful city. “Migration” explores the work of artists who have come to the city and follows their paths as artists in this world art hub we call Los Angeles.
