About The Garden

The Garden was created by David Horvitz and Terremoto. It is located on a vacant lot across from Horvitz’s studio where a house had burned down in an old Japanese neighborhood where Horvitz spent his childhood. It consists of remnants of the demolished LACMA buildings, oyster and clam shells, a crow perch, sea urchins, stones, broken ceramics, Turkish fishing nets, bells, found mirrors, hundreds of native plant species, and structures built from fallen trees in Los Angeles for hosting performances.


Yasmine Ostendorf-Rodríguez: A Micro-Residency is made possible in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. Our programs this year are also made possible through the generous support of the Board of Directors; the Gatherers Annual Fund; the Los Angeles Visual Arts (LAVA) Coalition; the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture as part of Creative Recovery LA, an initiative funded by the American Rescue Plan; and by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Department of Arts and Culture.
