90027 Los Angeles
FLAX (France Los Angeles Exchange) is pleased to present The Dialectic of the Stars, a visual arts and performance festival curated by Fabien Danesi, FLAX’s current Curator-in-Residence, which will be free and open to all. This February, the two-week series features works by 19 French and American artists showcased, like points of a star, at five iconic arts venues throughout the City. The Dialectic of the Stars launches at The Sowden House on Sunday, February 11 at 6 p.m. with a video proposal by curator Fabien Danesi and showcased artwork by Ange Leccia. His video piece, Star Dusts, acts as a call from the street while Danesi introduces this journey with images extracted from famed movies set in Los Angeles, all showcasing West Coast culture. French sculptor Nicolas Momein will unveil a new presentation of a mobile artwork made of several magnetic sculptures presented on a cargo van, evolving at each venue, acting as the totem of the project and the link between all the events.
The festival invites the public to drift all over the city to attend events at The Sowden House on February 11, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) on February 15, Ford Theatres on February 18, L.A. Dance Project (LADP) on February 24 and Zebulon on February 25. Installations and performances can be seen as allegories of coordinates, guiding the audience in the vastness of our globalized culture, like sailors once did at sea.
Due to the limited seating, The Sowden House event is by registration only. www.eventbrite.com/e/the-dialectic-of-the-stars-launching-tickets-41303518937
