Reunion Los Angeles is a space for gathering and idea building located in the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles. With intent to build a unique community through the elevation of ideas, the space offers invite-only events such as salons, symposiums, and screenings as well as offers three large subsidized art studios with a rotating roster of artists-in-residence. The goal is to eventually create an artist grant, as well as be a fully funded artist residency program.
A salon is an event to bring people together for meaningful conversations through casual interaction and the exchange and growth of ideas. Our salons are always private & invite-only. We keep the gathering intimate in a domestic space where our events are often centered around visual art with a hybrid understanding of visual culture - which includes philosophy, literature, politics, science, music, psychology, et al. We offer a space for stimulated social interaction, for we believe that discourse serves the greater social good.
We want to create a space for you to think slowly, engage in intellectual conversation, and spark discussion and hopefully new ideas. I personally miss discourse - as our conversations are becoming mild in temper and polite and barely scratch the surface of anything of substance, and we hope to abolish this, even just for a night.
The salon is a space for informal learning where all opinions are valuable and up for discussion. We foster an interactive experience and depend on the intellectual contributions of each of our members.
To engage in a salon is to bring a willingness to listen and offer critical reflection. We have a responsibility to one another in a salon that is not otherwise held in the “town square” of the internet.
All we ask is that you:
Be a good listener.
Demonstrate sensitivity and thoughtfulness towards others.
Show up ready to participate even if that means being an active listener.
