artist statement

MKE<->LAX investigates cultural exchange between two American regions, with Milwaukee and Los Angeles as epicenters, through residencies and public programs. The goal is to expand the discussion about cultural exchange across the boundaries that typically isolate ideas regionally. MKE<->LAX’s base intent is to move between regions to ask questions about the influence location, size, market, cultural values and other regional factors have on production of the arts and cultural identity.

With the direction of Sara Daleiden, the initiative creates conditions for social interactions in developing landscapes with an emphasis on regional poetics and expansion of market. MKE<->LAX offers support for empathetic, structural development of individual, organizational and community identity embracing various scales of experimentation and production. The initiative encourages active interpretation and embodied exploration of local places valuing public space, civic participation, economic sustainability, pedestrian awareness and celebration of difference.
