Donna Huanca: OBSIDIAN LADDER

Marciano Art Foundation, Los Angeles, CA
28 June – 1 December, 2019

In June 2019 the Marciano Art Foundation will present OBSIDIAN LADDER, the first large-scale solo exhibition in the United States by Donna Huanca. Huanca’s site-specific installation for MAF’s 13,000-square-foot Theater Gallery will reveal a new topography of triggered senses, combining sound, scent, and live performance.

OBSIDIAN LADDER will challenge the space of the former Scottish Rite Masonic Temple as a site of projected male power. In a series of regular performances taking place throughout the five-month run of the exhibition, painted femme models will inhabit the Theater Gallery as part of a direct intervention of a space formerly relegated to a secret order of men.
