  • Exit Strategies

    June 23, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

    Exit Strategies 
    Presented by artist-in-residence Yasmine Diaz
    On view June 8–August 3, 2018

    Join Yasmine Diaz for a walk through of Exit Strategies. For the installation, Diaz considers adolescence, a time when many young people begin to wrestle with the concepts of control and agency in the transition to adulthood. She recreates elements of the basement bedroom she had as a teen in Chicago — a place of refuge and privacy where she and sisters felt carefree, danced and played music, and gossiped about high school crushes. This space also represents a period when she struggled with the expectations of her religiously and socially conservative Yemeni-Muslim family.

    Now in its seventh year, Art Beyond the Glass is L.A.'s premier cocktail culture festival, featuring more than 100 top bartenders making cocktails and showcasing their artistry, from painting and sculpture to photography, live music and more!

    Hosted by Mia Mastroianni, ABTG VII is taking place at Los Globos, the landmark nightclub located on Sunset Boulevard in the heart of Silver Lake. Opened as L.A.'s first American Legion hall in the 1930s, Los Globos is a massive two-story venue with multiple rooms and state-of-the-art sound and lighting.

    This year we are honored to be raising funds for the Women's Center for Creative Work, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit located in Frogtown. Combining a co-workspace on the L.A. River, project incubation facilities, residency programs, a rapidly growing network of over 20,000 followers, and a full calendar of artistic and professional development programming, WCCW advocates for feminist-led creative businesses and projects in Los Angeles.

    General Admission tickets include cocktails, art exhibit, entertainment and bar bites. In addition, guests will be able to purchase bartender art, buy raffle tickets and bid on silent auction items such as artwork, photography, rare spirits and more. All proceeds from ABTG VII will be donated to WCCW.

    Art Beyond the Glass VII is being produced with the participation and support of the USBG Southern California Chapter.

    Art Beyond the Glass is a 21 and over event. Please enjoy responsibly. ABTG strongly recommends using a rideshare service such as Lyft or Uber.

    In this country, medical institutions, hospitals, doctor’s offices, and operating rooms have been sites of violence resulting in harm and negligible care to bodies of peoples of color—specifically, women, trans and gender non-conforming people, disabled people, and poor and working class folks.

    How does one ask for help and healing from a system that we don’t trust to take care of us?
