For The New Eagle Creek at the Institute for Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Sadie Barnettes first solo museum exhibition, the artist has reimagined her fathers historic bar with a glittering fictional patina. The installation, a version of which originally debuted at The Lab in San Francisco, functions as both a physical archive of the bar as well as a space to be activated by visitors, where coming together in each others company is foregrounded as something to be celebrated.
