an exhibition by twenty four commissioned artists
installation, performance and video art in shipping containers
part of the Port of Los Angeles Art on the Waterfront Festival 2007
The Port of Los Angeles and Angels Gate Cultural Center have commissioned fourteen installation and performance artists, nine video artists and one documenting artist to install and present art in shipping containers as part of the Port of Los Angeles Art on the Waterfront Festival 2007.
Under the supervision of Angels Gate curator Marshall Astor, the fourteen artists will create new works that can be seen on the day of the festival only. The works will be site specific, taking advantage of the challenge provided by the limitations of the 20-foot shipping containers. Photographer Slobodan Dimitrov, will document the artists as they work. Video curator Anne Bray has selected works from nine artists, organized into themes relevant to the harbor environment. The videos will show all day in rotation in a special 40-foot container outfitted with projection equipment and seating.
During daytime hours (11:00 AM – 5:30 PM), the container installations and five of the nine video artists’ works will be on view. Four different videos artists will be represented during the evening’s Artists Reception, from 7:00 – 9:00 PM. The public is invited to the free, catered reception, which will feature a cash bar.
