An Afternoon of Performances at The House of the Book
January 28 @ 2:00 pm - 5:19 pmSuggested Donation
Five performers create new work centering on Dan Levenson’s installation SKZ Monochrome Diptychs. Commissioned by American Jewish University as part of Launch Sites L.A.: Ezra Orion Revisited, Levenson has built a suite of modular plywood desks, chairs, benches and easels to represent a classroom at his fictional State Art Academy Zurich. In it, students make monochrome paintings that then pair up to make hinged diptychs.
The setting is the Sidney Eisenshtat’s House of the Book: an icon of 1970s Southern California brutalist architecture.
Performers include Carver Audain, Barnett Cohen, Jmy James Kidd, Odeya Nini, and Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs. Performances begin and 2pm and run until sunset at 5:19pm.
The exhibition continues through February 5, 2018 and is supported by the Artis Grant Program.
