Los Angeles Goes Live: Exploring the Origins of Performance: A talk by Carol Stakenas, Executive Director, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE)

Aug 30, 2011 At SITE Santa Fe

Los Angeles Goes Live explores histories and legacies of performance art in Southern California in the 1970s emphasizing the evolution of performance within a broader drive toward artistic experimentation that cuts across many spheres of cultural production. The show will focus on synthesizing the disparate practices of early performance art in the region, and will include re-stagings of historic performances.

Founded in 1978 by a small group of artists, LACE has become an internationally recognized pioneer among art institutions. By encouraging experimentation, LACE has nurtured several generations of young artists, and art forms such as performance art, video art, digital art, and installation-based work.

Since her arrival at LACE in 2005, Stakenas has worked with over 400 artists, more than 50 of which have developed unique and innovative projects that could only be realized through a residency at LACE.
