About Creative Exchange
Creative Exchange is an initiative in collaboration with the Center for Business & Management of the Arts at Claremont Graduate University (CGU) that seeks to connect, support, and highlight LA’s creative community. In recognizing the diversity and dynamism of our region’s creative sector, the Creative Exchange will encourage discussion and knowledge-sharing between established and emerging artists of all mediums, as well as our cultural organizations, curators, thought leaders, and supporters of the creative community at large.
Panelists: The Curator’s Process
David Pagel (Moderator)
David Pagel is a professor of art theory and history in Claremont Graduate University’s Art Department. In addition to his teaching roles, Pagel is known as an art critic and art curator in circles much bigger than CGU’s own. His rich career with these roles has led to his CGU courses, which include Studio Art, Survey of Contemporary Art, and the Written Statement.
Erika Hirugami, MA, MAAB Founder and CEO of CuratorLove
Hirugami is a first-generation Mexican immigrant, formerly undocumented, who holds an MA in Art Business from the Sotheby’s Institute of Art, in conjunction with the Drucker School of Management and Getty Leadership Institute at Claremont Graduate University. As well as BAs from UCLA in the fields of Art History, Chicano Studies, and Mexican Studies. She is currently a lecturer and doctoral candidate at UCLA, where she challenges the convergence of transnational aesthetics with a special focus on critical race theory through the undocumented Mexican experience.
Eva Chimento operated Chimento Contemporary 2015 – 2020. The gallery produced over 45 exhibitions and was invited to participate in 17 art fairs. Eva has worked in the arts in Los Angeles for over two decades. Starting in museum administration in the early 1990’s, Chimento went on to work for numerous galleries such as ACME, Koplin Gallery, and Patricia Correia Gallery at Bergamot Station.
LUZ is a painter and digital illustrator who is currently creating work inspired by his fascinations with gore, anatomy, cartoons & mythology. His pieces have become known for their abstract characters and psychedelic style but many don’t realize how dark the nature of his work truly is. LUZ utilizes vibrant colors & cartoonish imagery to transport the viewer to his own universe. In this universe, darkness is disguised as vibrance. LUZ’s works have been displayed at Super Chief NFT in NYC, Neo Shibuya Billboards in Tokyo, Art Share LA, and can be found on Super Rare, with FOUNDATION, & Makers Place.
As a long-time Arts District resident and community staple, he brought decades of extensive art experience to the organization and saw the building’s incredible potential in revitalizing the Arts District. Today, he is proud to see Art Share L.A. living up to its mission and can be found walking the hallways of the building sharing his stories or hanging up artwork for gallery shows. If you have any questions about the Arts District and all its glory, he’s the person to ask.
