  • York Chang (b. 1973, St. Louis, MO) is an interdisciplinary artist who uses forensic and archival information systems as supports for poetic gestures and alternate histories, in order to interrogate the aesthetic conventions of authority which often serve to blur the line between fiction and reality. He earned both his BFA (1996) and Juris Doctorate (2001) from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). York Chang lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, and is represented by Greene Exhibitions.

  • In this performance I try to summarize In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

Airport Ground Transportation

If you are arriving at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), there are several shuttle and shared-ride vans available to get you to your destination. These include, though are not limited to:

 

  • Super Shuttle and Prime Time Shuttle. You can find them in designated ground transportation areas just beyond the baggage claim area. Each van has a sign indicating its destination. Make sure your van is going to Los Angeles. You can ask where and when to board a shuttle van by using the courtesy phones available near baggage claim. The cost of a shuttle from LAX to Los Angeles is approximately $15-$35, in some cases more, including a recommended tip for the driver. The shared ride van will take you to the destination you specify.

 

  • Taxi Service: An alternative to shared shuttles and vans are taxis, though beware that taxis in Los Angeles tend to be more expensive than in other cities due to traffic and farther distances. The cost from LAX to Otis College of Art and Design (main campus) is approximately $20.00.
