ARTIST'S TALK + BOOK SIGNING: Dotan Saguy: Venice Beach, The Last Days of a Bohemian Paradise

  • Venice Arts 13445 Beach Avenue Venice, CA, 90292 (map)

Come hear photographer Dotan Saguy talk about his stunning photo documentary about the extraordinary but endangered culture of Venice Beach. His meticulously composed, compassionate photographs unabashedly praise the rarity of the unique individuals who populate the sands of Venice. Unfortunately, Venice Beach sits on the edge of a knife, as the forces of gentrification and corporate expansion threaten to squash the way of life that has defined Venice for decades. Saguy will talk about his artistic process and sign copies of his monograph Venice Beach: The Last Days of a Bohemian Paradise. Don't miss your final chance to see the exhibition before it closes.

This event is produced in collaboration with the Venice Art Crawl & the Venice Chamber of Commerce.
