Materials & Applications 14th Anniversary Gala
“In 2003, Materials & Applications began with the idea that creative experimentation should take place in public space. Since then, M&A has produced more than 20 site-specific installations — each of them inscribed into the landscape of Los Angeles. These installations are always free, unscripted and unsupervised. If you support our mission of experimentation and risk-taking made public, please join us on November 11 as we celebrate our spectacular past and usher in a new vision for M&A’s future. ”

Fear and Wonder: An Expedition through the Landscapes of Fiction
“Our perception of the world is largely shaped through the mediums of fiction. Our political positions are informed by fake news, we live out our lives in the pixelated territories of video games and we escape into the pages of a novel or the flicker of the movie screen. In film, games and literature, we have always imagined alternative worlds as a means to understand our own world in new ways. In Fear and Wonder we join an ensemble of directors, concept artists, video game designers and storytellers for an expedition through an atlas of imaginary worlds, fictional cities and speculative geographies. Curated by Liam Young, SCI-Arc Fiction and Entertainment Coordinator.”
When: November 11, 2017, 3:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Where: SCI-Arc W.M. Keck Lecture Hall
