Bombay Beach Biennale


“Bombay Beach Biennale 2023” [Essays & Articles]

BBB — an intersection of community, creativity, conversation, co-creation, and chaos.
BBB — a microcosm on the edge of reality.
BBB — a potent crucible for discovery, lunacy, and beauty at play.

Bombay Beach is a heterotopia, it is a place and non-place. It is a space of in-between. There is a vortex of time that exists here, which dilutes its directionality, and you begin to approach the Now, or the Infinite, two sides of the same clock.

Publication:  Anna Meloyan, Curator of Curiosities impressions on BBB:

“BB is an in-between place, where seemingly paradoxical happenings are commonplace and encouraged. Anyone drawn to this environment is welcome -- there is a non-hierarchical inclusion which produces a diverse community of creatives, locals, and volunteers all merging into a self-inspired and self-sustaining organism. This organism is in constant and rapid evolution (though time is not a subject worth pondering here). Absorbed by the radical love and involvement in community, no artist is left behind -- from those well-established in the 'established' world to those curious to see what putting two bricks together may feel like, BB offers a space to explore and create. For those navigating a world largely saturated with limits, codes, and rules, here is an invitation to open and express freely, allowing creatives of all types to drop restrictions placed on them by their respective professions, and engage in critical play.”
