Death, Destruction, and the Weather Coming Up Next, is now traveling to Nantes, France to be screened in the, Juste à côté de L.A. : CalArts Video, 2005-2007, a collection of video art coming out of CalArts between 2005-2007, curated by Audrey J. Chan. I will be on hand for the screening in Nantes which is tonight. Details and press release below.
The Contrechamp series presents a carte blanche to Audrey Chan, American artist and writer, currently in residence at l’école régionale des beaux-arts de Nantes (Nantes School of Art). As a parallel program to her exhibition at the school’s gallery, “Notes Toward an Exhibition”, she is presenting a program of videos made by young artists who studied at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), where video is employed as a fluid medium that engages with such practices as performance, painting, sculpture, writing, socio-political critique, and racial and gender deconstruction. Program duration: ~60 minutes + discussion with the artist.
