There's still a lot of staging to do here at Statler Waldorf, but it's coming along. Last night we attended an opening for LAND, Los Angeles Nomadic Division, run by Shamim Momin and Christine Y. Kim.
The LAND-commissioned piece we saw last night was by Guadalajara-based artist Gonzalo Lebrija. It was a film piece titled The Distance Between Me and You, depicting the artist fleeing from the camera in one of three California locales: Joshua Tree, Death Valley, and Yosemite. The black and white film was projected via Videotrons, a high-resolutions LED monitor generally used for advertisement, on Sunset Boulevard.
Tonight is the opening of Art Los Angeles Contemporary and there will be more LAND public pieces to view. There's lots of events, the tour of artist-run spaces, includes Statler Waldorf!
