Sustainability Network Happy Hour @ LACE

Join us for a special SUSTAINABILITY NETWORK HAPPY HOUR + SOCIAL MEDIA WORKSHOP led by Nicole Rademacher, Digital Communications Manager at the Department of Cultural Affairs for the City of Los Angeles.

Each month Sustainability Network members (artists, creatives, administrators, producers, and organizers) meet to get to know one another; talk about our work, needs, and interests; and workshop ideas for artist sustainability over tasty cocktails. Join us and meet other artists and creatives (potential collaborators, gigs, service providers, or just new friends), and check out the gallery. 

Drinks and light snacks will be provided. Suggested donation $10.

LACE is located at 6522 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028. Park on the street, in a paid lot off Wilcox, or walk from Hollywood/Vine Metro. http://welcometolace.org/


ABOUT THE WORKSHOP


Bring your smartphone or laptop and learn some simple tips and tricks to up your social media game! We'll cover the three main social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), as well as other available free apps, and learn how to document your work and activities like a pro using only your smartphone. You'll leave feeling proactive to engage with your community and find like minds in the interwebs.

Nicole Rademacher is an artist and digital communications professional. She currently serves as Digital Communications Manager for the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. Before working for the City she was Director of Communications & Outreach at 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica.


IN THE GALLERY

"I can call this progress to halt" is a project curated by Suzy Halajian, composed of an exhibition, a series of screenings and performances, and a publication at LACE, March 8 – April 23, 2017. The project considers gestures of protest, unrest, and incendiary exchange as the starting point to a conversation. Multimedia works and formats on view represent images of conflict and strife that are oftentimes stripped of their original or intended context. Considered together, they function more as dispersed, floating representations of contested moments in time that refuse to stand fixed, and instead vehemently call for another engagement with the world, an imagined world.

A conversation with Kio Griffith, Kristine Schomaker, Stephanie Diamond, and Allison Wyper.

StARTup Art Fair
@ Highland Gardens Hotel
www.startupartfair.com/LA

Tickets: $15 advance / $20 at the door

SHARE ON FACEBOOK


Entrepreneurs and artists alike create something new, responding to a need they see in the world. In both art practice and business practice, we are coming up with creative solutions, expertly executing them, and sharing them with our communities. 

This panel convenes 4 artists who support their creative practice through entrepreneurial means, as independent business owners and/or creative freelancers. We invite a group discussion around art practice and entrepreneurship, asking what different shapes our artistic careers might take, and how we leverage our skills as artists to make an impact or fill a need outside the studio.

Do you have any questions or topics you would like us to dicuss?
Post them in the event and we will try to cover them in the time we have.

About stARTup Art Fair
The art world is changing, and many working artists are finding themselves without a space to present their work. The core mission of stARTup Art Fair is to provide an exhibition venue for independent artists who are seeking to engage with art enthusiasts in a welcoming and interactive environment. Co-founded in 2015 by artist Ray Beldner, stARTup Art Fair gives independent artists access to the type of art world professionals and press usually reserved for traditional art fairs. The fair’s unique structure provides a marketplace that gives the artist the power to present and sell work on their own terms, allowing artists to keep 100% of their sales proceeds.

KIO GRIFFITH is an interdisciplinary artist, curator and editor producing diverse trajectory projects between the U.S. and Japan. His work includes drawing, painting, sound, video, performance, electronics, language, sculpture and installation. He has exhibited in Europe, Asia and the U.S.A. and has performed, collaborated or curated various musicians and contemporary artists, dancers and designers in galleries, museums, clubs and alternative spaces, locally and internationally. His current projects include project director at TYPE (Tokyo+Yokohama Projects Exchange), curator and development director at ARTRA, associate editor at Fabrik and Art Bridge (Tokyo), art director at Angel City Jazz Festival and has designed over 300 album jackets. Griffith has recently exhibited at the 2016 Aichi Trienniale in Nagoya, Japan.

STEPHANIE DIAMOND's work ensures that humans take care of themselves as individuals within a public. Her projects explore self care, personal practice and individual awareness as a catalyst for being of service to communities. She employs art as a vehicle to bridge gaps and provide access to places and people that would otherwise never come together. Her Listings Project, a free weekly email of real estate and opportunities listings focused on creative people, has become a staple within our community. Her select exhibitions include: MoMA, MASS MoCA, MoMA/P.S. 1, Studio Museum in Harlem, Queens Museum of Art, Bronx Museum of the Arts, Project Row Houses, and Contemporary Art Center (Vilnius, Lithuania).

Short presentations take place in The Annex at the Hammer Museum, and will be followed by dialogue with the audience. Admission is free. Paid parking is available under the museum.

Tuesday, January 24th
The Annex @ The Hammer Museum
10899 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles 90024

Rhizomatic Studio: Performance Lab is a forum led by Allison Wyper (Rhizomatic Arts) for developing works through the exchange of peer, artist-to-artist, feedback on new material over 3-weeks. The workshop culminates in a public showing at the Hammer Museum, a nexus for artist-centered exhibitions and programs on the west side of Los Angeles.

In Real Life: Studio provides a glimpse into the working processes of artists. Throughout the fall a select group of artists utilizes spaces in the museum to convene and rehearse new material, including theater, dance, music, and performance. While some artists and collectives will simply discuss or workshop material, others will produce a new project from rehearsal to final performance.

COLLECTIVE CREATION LAB:

TRY OUT NEW IDEAS AND WAYS OF WORKING

Monday nights, October 19 - November 23, 2015
$72 for the series
Advance registration required. No drop-ins. Email me to register.

A practice based, studio workshop for performers of all disciplines.

Participants take turns leading structures for generating new material and playing with old, new, or undeveloped ideas, in a safe, supportive, interdisciplinary cohort of peers. 

  • The lab can be a place to play around, try out ideas, experiment with ways of working that are totally outside your wheel house, make BAD WORK in a fun, safe private space, etc etc etc. Or it can be the start of a new project.
  • Structures might be borrowed from dance composition, devised or traditional theater, or performance art, and will be led by different members of the group each week. 
  • Weekly themes might be something like: authorship vs. shared intellectual property; tableaux vivant; performing the architecture; plot and character-driven narratives; what is a performance score; improvisation as divine play; etc etc etc
  • Participants can come from any performance-based discipline, and should be curious about trying out other ways of working.
  • Each participant will be invited to facilitate (or co-facilitate) a session, but that is not a requirement.
