My Cathedral
8/19/1997 - 9/27/1997
"My Cathedral" was a controversial site-specific installation by LA artist, Alex Donis. Donis utilized the history of the Galería's site, a multi-cultural pantheon of religious and pop figures and family stories to examine the complex inter-relationships between spirituality, memory, and the banal. The exhibition included an artist talk, docent tours, and a brochure with an essay by Coco Fusco.
