Shangri-LA
curated by Mike Kelley

Krotona was founded in 1911 by the Theosophical Society as a Utopian community of universal inquiry. The original site in what is now the Hollywood Hills harbored a compound of eclectic architecture and acted as a refuge for unconventional religious, philosophical and creative culture in Southern California.

This largely forgotten experiment is but one of several in California that reflects the region as a haven for visionary culture that persists to this day. Shangri-LA investigates this legacy, the amnesia of progress and current notions of Utopia. The exhibition combines installation, art, presentations and sound by a current generation who thrive in the shadow of the pioneers of independent thought. Shangri-LA is on display from August 17 through September 1.
