Going West, Paul Pescador at 18th Street Art Center
Paul Pescador is an artist, filmmaker, and writer working in Los Angeles, with an MFA from University of California, Irvine and a BA from University of Southern California. He produces films, performances, and photographs to discuss social interactions and intimacy as they pertain to his own personal identity and history. Pescador is currently in residence at 18th Street Art Center where he will produce a feature-length film emerging from a set of actions, gestures, and images oriented around neighborhoods he has lived in since moving to Los Angeles. Pescador asks questions of himself and others about being a resident in Los Angeles through examining his own experiences and those of residents in each neighborhood. His work weaves in personal anecdotes about his personal experiences learning to live in a large metropolitan area, including past relationship heartbreaks, isolation, and “getting lost within a crowd.” The Exhibition will be on view through June 29, 2018.
