Terrain Biennial West Features Art in Suburban Front Yards

Terrain Biennial, an international exhibition of site specific art made for front yards, balconies and porches, includes works by two CalArts alumni in the Terrain Biennial West edition at two homes in Los Angeles.

June Diamond’s (Art BFA 80) installation Curtain will be on view at the home of artists Mary Anna and Justin Stadel; and Joey Cannizzaro’s (Critical Studies MFA 14) performance art and installation Clusterfuck, Inc. will be on view at CalArts faculty Matias Viegener’s home.

For Curtain, Diamond installs an oversized 22-by-13-foot curtain across the front of 3651 Mimosa Drive in Los Angeles. The curtain, made of aluminum and steel slats, will expose parts, or the whole front, of the house at different times of the day, at the artist’s discretion.

Cannizzaro provides a “material condensing service” in the performance-installation Clusterfuck, Inc. The defunct possessions of Viegener, as well as any member of the public who brings material, will be pulverized with a hammer and reconstituted into an art object in an event that’s somewhere between a garage sale, a demolition derby and a block party.

From the press release:

If there are any things in your life that you would like to see bashed with a hammer, we ask that you bring them along with you on the day of the event or contact us to arrange for earlier delivery at

Both works open on Sept. 20 and are on view 24 hours a day until Oct. 30.
