Making Museums
“Harald Szeemann’s radical exhibitions at the Bern Kunsthalle and subsequent experiments at documenta and the Venice Biennale challenged the limits of the art institution and its methods of display. Join a discussion between artists and curators who have created their own museums and, like Szeemann, disrupted the conventions of exhibition-making. Panelists include Chris Vargas of The Museum of Transgender History and Art, Alice Konitz of the Los Angeles Museum of Art, and Alex Kalman of mmuseumm, among others. The discussion will be moderated by ICA LA curator Jamillah James.”

Rick Prelinger’s Lost Landscapes of New York
“Since 2006, film historian and archivist extraordinaire Rick Prelinger has presented 21 participatory urban history events to enthusiastic audiences in San Francisco, Detroit, Los Angeles, Oakland and at festivals throughout the world. For the first time, he is bringing his Lost Landscapes project to New York City. Lost Landscapes of New York mixes home movies by New Yorkers, tourists and semi-professional cinematographers with outtakes from feature films and background “process plates” picturing granular details of New York’s cityscape. The combination of intimate moments, memories from many New York neighborhoods, and a variety of rare cinematic perspectives forms a 21st-century city symphony whose soundtrack will be provided by the audience. Viewers will be invited to comment, to ask questions and to interact with one another as the screening unfolds.”

Where: UCLA Film & Television Archive, 10899 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, California 90024
