60 Artists Reinterpret Public Space Along Entirety of Wash. Blvd

WHERE: The entire length of Washington Blvd., from Whittier to Venice Beach
WHEN: October 11, 2009 12PM-6PM

“A Day in L.A.†shows work from over sixty Los Angeles artists and non-artists in unused public outdoor spaces along the entire length of Washington Boulevard’s 27 miles, from Whittier to Venice Beach. For one day artists will perform works, create installations, facilitate happenings, and make music in unexpected spaces, such as on the sidewalk, between dumpsters, along railroad tracks, as well as inside the audience’s cars as they traverse one of LA’s most iconic boulevards. An official map of the day’s events along with schedules and other downloadable information will be available to the public starting on October 4 on the event website www.washblvd.tk .

Works range from performances and installations to writings and discussions. The audience can choose how long they want to spend at each spot, skip spots or drive at different speeds between destinations. Audience members are additionally invited to car pool with some artists between spots and to switch car pools at their leisure.

Building on the success of his last curatorial endeavor, The San Fernando Road Concert in 2008, Curator Stephen van Dyck seeks to investigate the possibilities of Washington Blvd as a site for artistic exploration. Washington Blvd is America’s longest east-west directional metropolitan roadway. This event will highlight this space as a way to view how the Los Angeles metropolis grew, and the massive in-between and negative spaces it left behind as it expanded. Additionally, this day will examine the Blvd as a cross-section of the city’s diversity of landscapes and people. This exhibition/event/experiment asks, “How can we generate a new kind of LA experience, bringing meaning and attention to a collection of less obvious destinations?â€

Participating artists include Julia Holter, Karen Atkinson, Lisa Anne Auterbach, Jen Hofer, James Rojas, Robert Summers, Teresa Carmody, Amina Cain, Janet Sarbanes, Joe Milazzo, Mary Beth Heffernan, Mark So, Ama Birch, Ari Kletzky, Sarah Ibraham, John D’Amico, Tracy Molis, Katie Shook, Mat Timmons, Elana Mann, Alexis Hudgins, Michael Buitron, Sojung Kwon, Ken Ehrlich, Flint, Carolyn Chen, Tucker Neel, Eric Lindley, Austin Young, Danielle Adair, John Burtle, Meghann McCrory, Jade Thacker, Katie Jacobson, Daiana Feuer, Jonathan Gomez, Andrea Lambert, Joanne Mitchell, Kathrin Burmester, Anita Marto, Paul Pescador, Cynthia Simonian, D Jean Hester, Mariangeles Soto-Diaz, Emery Martin, David Casey, Veronica Shalom, Robin Myrick, Jared Woodland, Audrey Chan, Caroline Chang, Cary Georges and Nate Schulman. Additional artists will be announced as the event draws nearer.
