Organized in partnership with Torrance Art Museum and the City of Torrance, TRYST is the world’s largest international art fair for artist run initiatives featuring painting sculpture, video art, installation art and more from over 60 international artist-run spaces.

This event is alongside Nomad II, a 3-day pop-up exhibition of Southern California based Contemporary art.


MPAC is pleased to present new works by MPAC-affiliate artists, Nathaniel C. Praska, Ilknur Demirkoparan, and Naomi Middelmann. Each artist works at the intersection of the known and the unknown, the familiar and the strange, and the here and the gone, to reckon with the ever-morphing history of the present and its various enduring imprints. All that is familiar, both material and affective, is simultaneously estranged. The works of the artists in this exhibition encourage viewers to thus make a double-move: at once turning inward to their own family and personal stories in a process of seeing with insight, and outward across time and space to contemplate the fractures of lived reality, political memory, and material culture in comparative and connective ways.
