Lecture with Artists Sandow Birk & Elyse Pignolet
Los Angeles artists Sandow Birk and Elyse Pignolet are a husband and wife team who, in addition to maintaining successful solo careers, often collaborate on projects. In this joint lecture, Birk and Pignolet will talk about their collaborations, which have included two large-scale, hand-painted murals in Long Beach; Dante’s Inferno, a feature film done with paper puppets; Depravities of War, a series of monumental prints; as well CCTV #2, a ceramic surveillance camera featured in Faux Real.
Faux Real is a group exhibition (on display in the museum’s main level galleries June 2-September 29, 2013) that features installation artists and sculptors who recreate reality with a twist, using off-beat materials and a keen sense of humor. The results are playful, intriguing, and highly entertaining.
