Georgia Lassner will present A Traveling Exhibition

On Monday August 28th, Georgia Lassner will present the third iteration of A Traveling Exhibition an ongoing series of site-specific projects that Lassner began while an artist-in-residence at Bennington College in 2016.

The project focuses on bringing together working artists in a social exhibition space to foster dialogue and community through exhibitions and special programing.

homeLA // Larchmont: The Way Light Moves Through

Saturday August 26, 2017 4-7pm with timed ticket entry at 4pm, 5pm, and 6pm

We are thrilled to invite you to join us for homeLA's 18th performance event this summer at the home of Alexandra Mathews and Sam Mantell on Saturday August 26, 2017. Seven artists along with their collaborators have been working to create new site-specific performances and interactive installations in and around this sunny apartment complex near the Larchmont neighborhood. "The Way Light Moves Through" not only describes the visual quality of the home - the way light pours through windows, peeks through walls, and changes so subtly during an afternoon - but also points to the ways in which artists have been responding to the site during warm summer days of physical and conceptual explorations. 

homeLA // Larchmont: The Way Light Moves Through will be a durational performance where audiences can roam freely. There will be new works from Zena Bibler, Jay Carlon, Emily Marchand, J. Alex Mathews, NoodleRice & Friends, Cindy Rehm with Elizabeth Leister, and Selwa Sweidan.

*Exact location will be revealed upon ticket purchase.*

homeLA provides a platform to independent dance, body-based, sound, and intermedia artists at various stages of their careers to develop new works and one-of-a-kind performances in response to the architecture and ethos of Los Angeles homes.

homeLA is fiscally sponsored by the Pasadena Arts Council's EMERGE program.

Autopsicografia

Autopsicografia* (Portuguese) is a performance/installation piece by artist Amanda Maciel Antunes, telling the story of adapting to a new language and thought. Thinking is a language that doesn’t make the distinction of a matter of course and in this narrative the artist explores these allegedly distinct parts of nature with doubts in its incision. During its course the artist concedes, interferes and changes her reality by meddling with her seemingly instinctive area of perception and culture camouflage; gradually speaking to an audience (physical or in a cloud) that her boundaries on a spectrum are universal constants of the human race.

The Rad, Bad, and Sad Show Live in Torrance Art Museum!

A show about architecture in Los Angeles: After enduring years of car captive commutes through the endless sprawls of Los Angeles, Adam and Ben collect their road spun whimsy to discuss the unsung heroes, haters & heartaches of the architecture they encounter. Rating each masterpiece as Rad, Bad, or Sad; putting an end to the typical endless architectural discussion and deciding once and for all, what these buildings really are.

Extro/Introspection

The work deconstructs the idea of performance through an immersive event that will blur the boundaries between the audience and the performer. Via a GoPro that the performer will wear, the audience will be directly implicated in the spectacle. The GoPro footage then will be juxtaposed with the video of the performer that will be live-streamed and projected within a fixed environment. However the performer will be free to perform independent of the confines of the location of the projection. In this way the dancer becomes a conduit of engagement instead of being the subject of entertainment.

Funambulism Workshop with Jamie Hamilton

Do you want to explore walking on a tight rope? Here’s your opportunity! We will play on the rope, working on the basics of balancing, perhaps reframing our personal narrative of what is possible.

Jamie Hamilton is a sculptor, builder, and aerialist who trained himself in the art of wire walking over four years while building Amor Fati, a large installation of handmade trusses, nets, and wire ropes. He also creates constructivist sculptures which are musings on machine technology as extension of the body, expressing human desire and intellect along with its limitations.

Elemental Exigency: An Environmental Arts Initiative

Small Green Door is pleased to present “Elemental Exigency” – an environmental arts initiative that explores the elemental repercussions of human habitation on Earth through photography, painting, sculpture, performance, poetry and immersive installation. As life on this planet faces increasing threat by climate change accelerated by human impact, this exhibition will showcase how a number artists in Los Angeles and beyond are responding to the elemental forces in their natural environment.

Elemental Exigency will feature work by artists Adrienne Adar, Gabrielle Greenberg, Dante Marshall, Alexis Myre, Orson Oblowitz, Rezm Orah, Gretchen Ryan, Tushar Routh, Alexandre Velasco and Eddy Vajarakitipongse. This exciting new group of artists uses the practice of art as a means to examine the intricate processes and patterns in nature. Their work reveals new potential for humanity’s complex relationship with the natural world. These artists represent a spectrum of artistic disciplines with diverse vantage points shaped by their landscape, terrain, culture and identity. In experiencing their work we come to understand personal accounts of survival and regeneration in the human habitable range.

This evening will also feature a solar powered concert. Drinks and food will be served! All are welcome, free and open to the public.
