FAR Bazaar at Cerritos College
(in the Old Fine Arts Building)
11110 Alondra Blvd
Norwalk, CA 90650
Jan 28-29, 2017 (10AM-10PM, both days)
http://www.cerritos.edu/farbazaar2017/Cerritos College in partnership with the Foundation for Art Resources (FAR) presents FAR Bazaar2017, an art collective and festival.

FAR, one of the oldest artist-run non-profits in Southern California, will celebrate its 40th anniversary. To honor this milestone, Cerritos College will host the group’s largest FAR Bazaar event on January 28-29, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

The large-scale event will be held in the College’s abandoned 1950’s mid-century modernist structure and former Fine Arts building. The structure is slated for demolition just days after FAR Bazaar 2017 to make room for the College’s new modern facility. FAR Bazaar 2017 will occupy more than 50 abandoned rooms, transforming the facility’s 30,000 square feet of interior into a collection of alternative art spaces curated by local art groups. Graduate students from regional universities and art schools, and food trucks and an art book/print fair will be onsite.

To honor this major milestone of 40 years, FAR is collaborating with Cerritos College to host its biggest FAR Bazaar event ever. In February of 2017, after over 55+ years of use, Cerritos College will be retiring and demolishing its existing Fine Arts complex. This mid-century modernist structure, now sits side-by-side with its replacement, a massive new Fine Arts building to be completed in December 2016. Before the old building is torn down, however, Cerritos College, with the help of FAR, will transform every abandoned classroom, faculty office, and administrative space into temporary exhibition spaces, each to be guest-curated by local art collectives and alternative art spaces, as well as the graduate programs from regional universities and art schools. Because the building is slated for destruction immediately after the end of the event, there is ample opportunity for these various groups to explore alternative methods of installation and even transform the individual spaces into walk-in tableaus that directly engage with the pedagogical nature of the environment. 

January is the month for the region’s major commercial art (af)fairs, in particular the Los Angeles Art Show and Art Los Angeles Contemporary. The FAR BAZAAR, as non-commercial alternative art fair, highlights the significant contribution that art collectives, artist-run spaces, and local art schools have on the regional art scene overall. Much like the art fairs provide access to disparate commercial galleries from across the globe, the FAR BAZAAR will allow the various art communities that are physically spread far and wide across the megalopolis of Southern California to come together temporarily in one place for easy access and for productive exchange.
