As I see it, all of them – Tachists, Action Painters, Informel artists and the rest – are only part of an Informel movement that covers a lot of other things as well. The Informel is the opposite of the constructional quality of classicism – the age of kings, of clearly formed hierarchies. The age of Informel has hardly begun.

-Gerhard Richter

 

Katie Herzog and Actual Size Los Angeles are pleased to announce Une Alphabétisation Autre, a special day event organized in conjunction with the closing of Katie Herzog’s exhibition, Informel. Animal assisted literacy programs have become increasingly popular in libraries and learning centers throughout the country. These innovative programs provide canine mentorship to foster improvement in confidence and literary skills of school aged children. On Saturday, August 28th, children and adults are invited inside the gallery to read to Eli and Ivy, two trained therapy dogs. Light snacks will be provided.

If your child would like to read with Eli and Ivy, please call 213-290-5458 to set up a time.
