Public Fiction occupies an unmarked storefront in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Neither a commercial gallery nor a not-for-profit organization, it is a space for artistic experimentation in the form of exhibitions, performances, artist talks, screenings, and a quarterly publication. A nexus for local artists, critics, curators, and academics, Public Fiction provides a much-needed counterpoint to the commercial ventures that dominate the L.A. art scene. For Made in L.A., artist Lauren Mackler (who established Public Fiction in 2010) continues this methodological approach, presenting a set of rotating exhibitions at the Hammer Museum during the biennial’s three-month run.
