ARTIST’S TALK + BOOK SIGNING: Dotan Saguy: Venice Beach, The Last Days of a Bohemian Paradise
September 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Come hear photographer Dotan Saguy talk about his stunning photo documentary about the extraordinary but endangered culture of Venice Beach. His meticulously composed, compassionate photographs unabashedly praise the rarity of the unique individuals who populate the sands of Venice. Unfortunately, Venice Beach sits on the edge of a knife, as the forces of gentrification and corporate expansion threaten to squash the way of life that has defined Venice for decades. Saguy will talk about his artistic process and sign copies of his monograph Venice Beach: The Last Days of a Bohemian Paradise. Don’t miss your final chance to see the exhibition before it closes.
This exhibition is presented as part of Venice Arts’ 25th Anniversary celebrations, and corresponds with the publication of the monograph Venice Beach: Last Days of a Bohemian Paradise by the German photo book publisher Kehrer Verlag.
