Atlas EVAD

atlas_evad_flareLong Beach based artist Glenn Bach presents Atlas EVAD, a project in his extended Atlas series. Over the summer of 2006, Bach walked and investigated the East Village Arts District (bounded by Ocean Boulevard, Atlantic Avenue, 4th Street, and Elm Avenue) in downtown Long Beach, California. Using drawings, photographs, found texts, and sounds, Bach has created a multi-faceted portrait of the Arts District as place, a shifting series of observations about a group of overlapping neighborhoods that defy straightforward categorization. Atlas EVAD provides the framework for examining city streets from the point of view of the pedestrian; in this case one who is simultaneously a resident local and visiting tourist. By remixing the urban walk, Bach circumvents the usual manner in which a city is navigated, generating nuanced and idiosyncratic travelogues for the contemporary urban landscape.
