Opening Referencing an arcade, interactive sculptures and installations. Visitors are invited to move between childhood and the present.

Beatriz Cortez is a visual artist and cultural critic based in Los Angeles, whose works often link contemporary philosophy to her own migratory experiences. In her solo exhibition, Nomad World, the artist conceptualizes the gallery space as an arcade, a space where games and amusement intersect with questions of global capitalism. This body of work includes interactive sculptures and installations – a fortune telling machine, a pinball machine, a jukebox, and a photo booth – that invite visitors to move between childhood and the present, to envision being in new places, and to imagine being other.
