The Place of Birth at PRJCTLA is a hybrid presentation that includes an exhibition of large scale prints from the Sandberg Instituut Alumni that are paralleled with UC Irvine Alumni actual physical works creating a visual dynamic from artists of the two different MFA programs. This physical paring is paralleled with a virtual element of interviews created by the Sandberg Institute and moderated by interviewer Adrian Madlener. This exhibition creates a virtual and physical bridge with the Sandberg Instituut and UC Irvine School of Arts and also a connection between Los Angeles and Amsterdam.This show is part of an ongoing series of cultural exchange programs at PRJCTLA.

The hybrid presentation is comprised of three elements: a virtual interview series, a presentation of printed publication pages and display of physical works of art. The presentation is named after publication The Place of Birth that was published by PS (Public Sandberg) in
2019 and includes all graduates listed by birthplace: https://sandberg.nl/grad-uation2019/ publication.
