Surrealist Study Group

Los Feliz

Surrealist Study Group (SSG) hosted by dama in the PRS Library. Surrealist Study Group (SSG) is a critical inquiry into the works of women artists and writers associated with Surrealism. The group will focus on how the poetics and politics of female works of surrealism in the past intersect with and contribute to contemporary debates on gender, sexuality, spirituality, subjectivity, otherness, anthropocentrism, and the environment. For each gathering of study we will select a short story, a chapter, an artwork or a journal entry to be discussed.

Crumb (35mm) @Aero (w/ Terry Zwigoff Q&A)

Santa Monica

Terry Zwigoff’s CRUMB is an intimate portrait of the underground artist Robert Crumb. It is also a creepy, darkly funny, and haunting glimpse into the capriciousness of fate in the workings of a single family. Shot over six years, CRUMB uses unexpurgated interviews with the artist, his family, colleagues, critics, and ex-lovers, along with footage of his work, to paint a riveting picture of this artist’s obsessions, and of the powerful visions he has created with them. Ultimately, the film is about following one’s vision and the rewards and risks of doing so.

The Harder They Come @Academy Museum

Miracle Mile

Following its major success in Jamaica, Roger Corman’s New World Pictures acquired United States distribution rights and released The Harder They Come across the US in 1973. Initially failing to find an audience, the film did very well with midnight showings, bringing in a slightly older audience interested in seeing the first feature from Jamaica. Aided by the release of its soundtrack, which features songs by the star Jimmy Cliff and helped popularize reggae music in the US, the fandom grew rapidly. At the Elgin Theater in New York City, the film ran consistently from late 1974 through early 1977 in its midnight timeslot.

Sounds of LA: Sara Curruchich

Brentwood

There is no better way of introducing Sara Curruchich than to say that being a woman in Guatemala is an act of resistance, and being a Mayan Kaqchikel woman as well as an artist is not only a political statement, but an act of defiance. Sara is the first Indigenous Guatemalan singer and songwriter to sing in Kaqchikel (her mother tongue), as well as Spanish, for an international audience. Her voice and message of love, awareness, respect, and defense of life in all its forms, have led many people to regard her as a beacon of light and hope. Her music blends various genres such as rock, folk and traditional Mayan Kaqchikel music.

Poetry is a product of patience and observation — we are all poets, if only we allow ourselves the space. It is this belief that motivates The Art of Poetry: a teahouse poetry circle.

The program will run from 11am-2pm and will be composed of three parts: discussion, engagement, and creation. Led by Blake Denham

Jamming Across Space and Time: Teleimprovisation 30 Years before Zoom

Brentwood

Are the experiences of performing live virtually and in analog mutually substitutable? What is lost as a result of mediation? What is gained? How performers can take advantage of the tele-interaction? These and other questions arise for anyone who attempts to be creative with other people remotely in live format. Yet, while taking advantage of the possibility to easily connect with people all over the globe to compose and perform, most of us are missing the "authentic" in-person experience. What is the authenticity that makes the analog performance more rewarding and satisfactory than the remote? Is there a way to turn mediation to our advantage? Rather than looking down to the past technology as obsolete, we propose to look at what teleperformance was like in the pre-Zoom era. 30 years ago the possibility to jam live across time and space was a cutting-edge practice that required days of preparation and hours of set up as well as embracing the risk that something would not work. Yet, there's something to learn from the past practice when technology wasn't commodified/instantaneously available to a general user. The video-phone technology (Galloway & Rabinowitz) and computerized instruments with remote control (Yamaha Disclavier) were the key elements of a teleperformance. Watching the '92 improvisation of two pioneers of experimental music, Terry Riley (Nice, France) and David Rosenboom (Electronic Cafe International, Santa Monica), across time and space we aspire to understand how performers navigated telepresence decades ago and how it impacted their creative practice. The ultimate question concerns the tension between art-making, associated with feeling/affective experience, and disembodying technology, which requires rationality and precision. Is there a way to get around these dichotomies? Attendees are invited to join an introductory lecture followed by the screening of not previously publicly available recording of the 1992 teleimprovisation, and share their impressions of jamming in the pre-Zoom era.

LA Filmforum: Race d'Ep (1979)

Historic Filipinotown

Free screening of Race d’Ep (1979) by Lionel Soukaz and Guy Hocquenghem. Lionel Soukaz's Race d’Ep (1979) was made in collaboration with Guy Hocquenghem, the most famous queer theorist in France. It focuses on the history of modern homosexuality, and its association with the development of photography, from the late-19th century to the post May-68 gay liberation movement. Establishing a dialogue with Michel Foucault’s History of Sexuality and underscoring the radical politics of queer activism after the May 68 Student Revolution, Soukaz’s film is an experimental documentary about the increasing visibility of gay culture in a pre-AIDS era.

Screening in recent restorations from the Hungarian National Film Archive, this selection of films invokes the language of legends and the logic of dreams to explore diverse questions of national identity, political instability and psychic liberation, featuring techniques including pencil drawing, cel animation, cutouts, progressive loops, and even stop motion with cookies and beans. We are thrilled to share these intensely memorable, surprising, and often hallucinatory films as a testament to the radical imaginations and prodigious talents of this golden age of Hungarian experimental animation.

Electric Soundbath by Guy Blakeslee presented by ThirdEyeMemories

Los Feliz

The Electric Soundbath is a sonic container for inner journeying. Lying on the floor with eyes closed, guests are invited to allow the soundscape to support them and to be gently carried toward expanded states of consciousness. Guy Blakeslee uses warmly saturated analog cassette recordings of sustained tones and harmonic frequencies to channel the ethereal (intention) into material form (tape). Each Electric Soundbath is unique, an intuitively improvised interaction with the energy in the room, broadcasting the materialized intentions for healing and expansion back into the ethereal realm and vibrating the attendees on a cellular level. He has been developing this new and electrified version of what has become known as a "sound bath".

Archaeology, Museums, and War: Strategies for the 21st Century

Palisades

Heritage destruction during wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and more recent conflicts have vastly increased the obligation of scholars to help preserve the art and material culture of antiquity. Classical archaeologist C. Brian Rose has first-hand experience with destruction and preservation efforts in conflict zones. He draws from his deep understanding of excavations and museums to reflect on cultural heritage today, repatriation requests, and the importance of the past for the present.

Julie Mehretu and Gemini G.E.L.

Brentwood

Julie Mehretu's collaboration with Gemini G.E.L.—the acclaimed Los Angeles artists' workshop and publisher of limited-edition prints—began in 2008 with a small, single-color drypoint. Now counting eighteen projects, her printmaking at Gemini has since evolved to multi-plate, richly colored works of monumental scale and remarkable technical complexity that push the limits of the medium.

Primera Generación Dance Collective: NOStalgia POP

Downtown

With eclectic, multilingual, Latinx aesthetics, Los Angeles and Riverside-based Primera Generación Dance Collective exposes “el desmadre” (the messiness) that is their first-generation Mexican American experience. Rooted in popular Latine music, movement, and moments, their newest evening-length multimedia dance work, NOStalgia POP, pays homage and cheeky critique to the recuerdos romanticos that link Latine bodies together. A collage of ‘80s pop en Español, the “Latin Explosion” of the ‘90s, and millennial Mexican core weave together with media depictions of gente Latina. Four captivating dancers tell the story of how messy, fruitful, joyful, and painful the development of an ever-growing Latin Pop culture memory has been and the ways in which mainstream media shapes and is (re)shaped by Latine nostalgia.
