    Shefali Mistry leads Michelada Think Tank event on artists of color

  • For decades, the Los Angeles–based artist Lita Albuquerque has blurred distinctions between Land art and Light and Space on increasingly grander scales, whether it be building installations surrounding the pyramids in Egypt or placing sculptures across Antarctica to mirror the formation of the stars. Her cosmic explorations continue with two new bodies of work that are currently being shown at Kohn Gallery in Hollywood, from January 9 through February 27, 2016, and at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, from January 26 through April 10, 2016.

CELEBRATING THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FUTURISTS

umberto_boccioni_sculpture


Otis College of Art and Design Event Brings Together Writers, Artists, Musicians, Followers and Fans of the Avant-Garde Movement Begun in 1909

Public Is Invited to “Futurism + 100” with Music, Poetry Readings, Short Films and Art,Including Premiere of Video Installation, “1080 Punch-ups”

WHO: Otis College of Art and Design invites all Futurists (and the public at-large) to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Futurist Manifesto, written by Italian poet Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. The declaration was published on the front page of Le Figaro on February 20, 1909, and launched a cultural phenomenon. Marinetti’s legacy continues to exercise a vital and often controversial influence on contemporary visual and literary worlds.

WHAT: To commemorate the founding of Futurism, the Graduate Writing Program at Otis, chaired by Paul Vangelisti, hosts a real “serata futurista” (“futurist evening”). The many fields of experimentation dear to the Futurist sensibility will be duly represented: poetry, music, visual arts, cinema and food. Vangelisti recommends that attendees wear Futurist attire (i.e., red, black or white).

Poetry: Readings of “parolibere” poems (“words in freedom”) and a passage from Marinetti’s Come si Seducono le Donne (How to Seduce Women), for the first time in English translation.
Music: A Futurist DJ Set with the music and voices of the movement’s principal figures, remixed and revisited by DJ ZANG TUMB TUMB.
Visual Arts: Reproductions of the key articles of the Futurist Manifesto on display, as well as a number of reproductions of “parolibere” poems. Also, premiering, MARINETTI + COMPUTER, an interactive video installation by Alessandro Marianantoni and Gianluca Rizzo, projected on the “punch-card” façade of the Otis main building (constructed in 1962 for IBM’s West Coast headquarters), which translates Futurist aesthetics into the language of new media.
Cinema: Projection of Amor Pedestre, a rare Futurist short that tells a love story by focusing solely on the character’s feet.
Food: “Polibibita” Negroni, the one and only true Futurist cocktail

WHEN: Friday, February 20, 2009 from 8pm until 10pm
WHERE: Otis College of Art and Design, just north of LAX, at 9045 Lincoln Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045. Map and directions available at archive.otis.edu
