During my residency, I will be researching exhibitions for the 2019 program at Gas. Each seasonal exhibition includes work in a mobile art gallery parked around Los Angeles and online, thus I’m interested in artistic practices that exist between both arenas. I see the space’s inherently itinerant format as a reflection of the fluidity of twenty-first century culture and art practice. —Ceci
