Join us for a special exhibition walkthrough with curator Jamillah James.

Brooklyn-based photographer Lucas Blalock (b. 1978) uses both traditional and digital techniques to create uncanny and surreal images of ordinary things. An Enormous Oar, the artist’s first solo museum exhibition, presents over twenty works produced in the last five years focused on still-lifes, domestic scenes, and portraits.

Jamillah James is Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (ICA LA). With Margot Norton, she is curating the 2021 edition of the New Museum Triennial. Prior to joining ICA LA in 2016, James was Assistant Curator at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, working in collaboration with the nonprofit Art + Practice
